Does it happen to you too that you really want to become more consistent with practicing mindfulness activities, such as meditating, journaling, and yoga, but that you just don’t find the time for it?

I totally get it. Life sometimes just gets so incredibly hectic, that a meditation or journaling session just becomes the veeery last thing on your to-do list, right?

However, practicing mindfulness on a regular basis is incredibly important and can really help you to be more present at the moment and connect with yourself on a much deeper level.

In this blog post, I will share some important tips on how you can prioritize mindfulness in your life and practice it on a daily basis (even on busy days)

Ready? Let’s do this!

#1. Wake up 1 hour earlier

Try to go to bed a little earlier in the night, so you can wake up 1 hour earlier the next day. This will allow you to have an hour just for yourself, when everybody is still asleep, where you can squeeze in your favorite mindfulness and self-care activities.

This is an amazing way to start off your day since you might be able to take those feelings of groundedness, presence, and awareness further into your day. And by doing this on a consistent basis you might notice that when stuff happens that would normally really affect you on an emotional level, you will be able to put things into perspective, accept them and let go much more easily.

#2. There is ALWAYS time

It’s not a matter of having the time or not, it’s just a matter of prioritization.

There is ALWAYS time, it’s just about what you choose to do with it.

Everything that you choose to do, has an opportunity cost. Because when you are doing one thing, means that you are not doing something else.

So stop wasting your energy on finding excuses and just prioritize mindful activities.

Whenever you notice that you are scrolling mindlessly through your phone, decide consciously to do a quick meditation or journaling session instead.

They say that you should meditate every day for 10 minutes. Only when you are busy, then you should meditate for an hour.

And this is absolutely the right mindset to have!

The busier your day is, the more you need to meditate in order to be able to tackle your day without it affecting you too much.

#3. Have a dedicated spot in your home for practicing mindfulness

Whether it is a certain corner in a room, a desk, pillow, or sofa, assign a designated spot where you will do your mindfulness activities.

Why is this important? Because practicing mindfulness is all about training your mind to pause for a bit and shift your focus from your mind to your body. And that isn’t something that you do easily throughout the day. So, having a dedicated mindfulness spot will help your mind to transition easier into ‘mindfulness’ mode when you are using the same spot over and over again.

Ensure it’s a quiet and cozy space where you feel safe and can come to rest.

And also make sure to have everything you need for practicing mindfulness by hand, for example, a yoga mat, journal notebook, candles,…

#4. Don’t give up when you are not noticing the benefits immediately

You probably won’t notice any major changes in your life after just 1 meditation session, so don’t have unrealistic expectations.

Mindfulness has changed the lives of so many people around the world, and it has the power to change yours as well.

You just have to be patient and give it enough space and time before you evaluate the benefits these practices have brought to your life.

#5. Truly enjoy it when you’re practicing mindfulness

This one is definitely the most important one! Don’t see your mindfulness activities as to-dos!

Instead, try to deeply and genuinely enjoy spending time with yourself, getting to know yourself on a deeper level, and creating more body awareness.

The relationship with yourself is hands-down the most important relationship you will ever have, so it’s definitely worth investing time in.

#6. Create a mindfulness ritual

Create your own, unique ritual that you love and try to engage as many of your different senses as possible.

Especially when you find it difficult to remain focused throughout the whole meditation session, it can help to engage your different senses.

For example:

  • Engage your smell by lighting some candles or incenses
  • Engage your hearing by putting on some calm music or saying your mantras out loud
  • Engage your taste by drinking some relaxing tea
  • Engage your touch by, for example, touching your mala beds (meditation necklace)

The more senses you engage, the easier (and more fun) it becomes to stay focused.

#7. Do regular check-ins with yourself throughout the day

Do regular check-ins with yourself throughout the day and ask yourself how you are feeling. Do you feel light? or heavy? Do you have tension somewhere in your body? Don’t judge or overthink it, just notice it.

Are you feeling hungry? Thirsty? Stressed? Tired? Overwhelmed? Take care of yourself and cover your basic needs… Drinking enough water, not skipping meals, making sure you’re getting enough sleep, and definitely practicing mindfulness when you feel you need it.

After a while, you will notice that you start desiring and looking forward to your mindfulness sessions and that’s an amazing sign because that means that you’re truly enjoying it AND noticing the benefits from it.

    That’s so true. I initially made excuses in doing yoga and meditating. But last year I started pub a daily basis. I felt so calm and refresh after my sessions.

  2. Jeannie says:

    I love waking up earlier for some me-time like running and yoga. I just recently bought a diffuser to help me with my quiet time and I find it helpful in keeping me calm.

  3. Sarah says:

    I went through a phase of practicing mindfulness every night before bed, but unfortunately, the habit has since slipped! Your post has inspired me to start it up again.

  4. sarah says:

    This is such an important article. I find it hard to make time during the day so I will try to get up an hour earlier to do this. It is the perfect time while everyone else is sleeping.

  5. Kelly says:

    This is something I’m working on practicing more consistently! I love point #2!!

  6. Kathy says:

    Such good advice, though getting up an hour earlier for me is a stretch to do all in one fell swoop! I think I can begin with 5-10 minutes, though, and work up from there!
