I’m a big fan of anything organisation-related, so when I saw this idea for a Mindfulness Action Plan, I was all over it like a hot mess.
I love mindfulness. For me, it’s been one of the most effective ‘therapies’, right alongside exercise, in starving anxiety and feeding happiness. Mindfulness has allowed me to take comfort in the silence that I was previously afraid of. It’s given me some respite from my own thoughts.
That doesn’t mean that I don’t skip practice, even when it’s only 10 minutes long. The busier my life gets, the easier it is to skip.
Ironically, it’s in these times that we really need it the most.
Hence why I feel like some organisation is needed. Here’s my Mindfulness Action Plan.
This plan is based around my day, but is easily adapted to suit your needs.
They do say: “Fail to prepare. Prepare to fail.” Right?! Just winging it isn’t going to work here.
Mindfulness has so many proven scientific benefits, but you won’t see any of them if you don’t actually ever do it! Consistency is important. Most people report that they have success when they try activities at the same time each day.
