Journaling Inspired by Mindfulness

While meditation may be the most effective way to achieve mindfulness, there are other options you can try.

You can still find more happiness and peace of mind through a variety of physical and mental practices.


Be mindful throughout the day. Use a timer app on your phone or computer to remind when during your day to be mindful. Set the timer to notify you every 10 to 15 minutes. Take a few mindful breaths.


Breathe deep. Engaging with your breath is a practice you can do anywhere. Pay attention to each inhalation and exhalation. You’ll feel stronger and calmer.

Then return to your previous activity.
