Your personal rituals are a great way to practice mindfulness. Do you start your day with a cup of coffee and contemplate the day? Do you take an evening bath with a good read, bubbles, or music? How about your daily meditation practice? Did know that checking in regularly with family and friends is a ritual? Practicing self-care is a ritual. A ritual is something you do on a regular basis, with particular practice and sureness.
Rituals give us purpose and can help us navigate through our day. They can keep us centered and provide balance. They can also keep us mindful of how we feel and are reacting throughout the day.
Take some time this weekend to put together a list of regular rituals that can assist you in being mindful.
