When you have jobs to juggle, errands to run, and children to wrangle, it’s easy to get lost in the everyday hubbub. “I’m too busy to be mindful,” you might think. And we hear you. But practicing mindfulness doesn’t have to take all day. The trick is to look for small moments of stillness and quiet—we promise they exist!
For instance, focus on your breath at a stoplight, while you’re in the shower, or at bedtime. After a few weeks of this, you’ll start to see a shift. Living mindfully will soon become second nature, and you’ll find yourself finding time each day to feel present.
