Welcome to the Wellbeing & Words 30-Day Mindfulness Experience! Mindfulness is a way of being that you can cultivate by regularly doing mindfulness activities. Mindfulness doesn’t remove problems, but it changes our relationship with those problems–and with ourselves. Mindfulness is a wonderful experience that gives us the power to take back our lives and help us live well despite anxiety, depression, stress, and a multitude of other physical- and mental health challenges. Mindfulness allows you to free yourself from these problems by rooting yourself in what’s going on in your real world rather than in your racing, spinning mind.
Visit this page daily to receive a new mindfulness exercise, short and sweet and specific to a particular situation you might encounter in your daily life. These 30 days of mindfulness activities fall in November, a difficult month for many people and one that signals the beginning of several difficult months ahead. May these mindfulness experiences carry you through. Despite the fall theme, however, the exercises themselves can be used year-round. So whenever it is that you are coming to this experience, jump in because the exercises are timeless.
Let go, and be mindfully you!
The 30-Day Mindfulness Experience: How-To
Mindfulness is about being in the moment, but sometimes a change in perspective makes all the difference. Do this one as-is, or adapt it to your physical needs. Keep it silly, or get more serious. Your choice!
Did you know that mindfulness is a useful tool in an argument or when you’re feeling angry? It’s not about escaping or erasing. It’s about centering so you can respond rather than react. Try it!
We spend a lot of time in lines, and it can be frustrating. How you choose to spend that time can make a big impact on your wellbeing.
Have you ever felt that your mind is cluttered with anxiety, stress, and a bunch of other junk? This mindfulness exercise will help you empty your mind and replace clutter with calm. The more you do it, the more it helps.
It can be hard to get motivated sometimes. If you’re feeling unmotivated and stuck, try this mindfulness meditation for a boost.
If you’ve ever had a hard time relaxing and unwinding (I have!), try this mindfulness exercise. It just might help–and reduce stress and anxiety in the process.
How many times do you, when you’re hungry, wolf something down on the run, at your desk, standing at the counter, watching TV, or using your phone? When we do that, we stress our digestive system, and we don’t nourish our mind. Try slowing down and eating mindfully. See if it helps you feel less frazzled.
Sometimes anxiety and negative thoughts can even ruin joyful moments. Thoughts invade, reminding us of problems or telling us that this happiness won’t last. Here’s a way to use mindfulness to en-JOY the moment without thoughts wrecking it.
Honk if driving is stressful and anxiety-provoking! You can’t change traffic, but you can improve your experience in it with this mindfulness activity.
We all experience bad days (boo). Practice this mindfulness activity whenever you need to. It won’t change events out of your control, but it will help your brain and body. That, in turn, helps your thoughts, perspective, emotions, and actions so you can turn things around.
Mindfulness is just as important and effective on good days as it is on bad days. It’s frustrating when we miss the good in life because worries creep in and shift our attention. Use mindfulness to be there for your good day.
Full attention in the moment minimizes distractibility so you can focus on what you need to do to move yourself forward.
