Part of becoming mindful is learning to meditate. And if you can make meditation a practice that you follow regularly, you will find that you actually learn to slow down, breathe and become more aware of your surroundings. There are many ways to meditate such as simply sitting in a comfortable posture and noticing your body and your breathing and just allow yourself to be.
Meditation has been around for many years and proven to be a stress-reduction technique. It can help keep you calm and reduce feelings of anxiety. A favourite app that we use for meditation is Calm.com
You can start with 2 minutes and work your way up to 30 minutes of Calm.
