Sounds ah-mazing, right? Here are a few tips on how to integrate more mindfulness into your home and daily routine:
- Set an intention.
As soon as you wake up and before you get out of your comfy bed, take a handful of deep breaths and set an intention for the day. What do you want to accomplish beyond your everyday to-do list? Think of something you want to appreciate, acknowledge, and communicate in your life.
- Make your bed.
Did you know that making your bed is a actually a productivity enhancing and mood-boosting habit that you can easily establish? Plus, it helps to encourage your mind to create more healthy habits.

There is a quote by Karen Maezen Miller, a Zen Buddhist priest and author of Hand Wash Cold: Care Instructions for an Ordinary Life, that says, “A full hamper reminds us that running away from the things we would rather avoid makes our lives feel like an endless chore. Face it. Taking responsibility for your own well-being is the first step in transformation.”
Listen to Karen!
- Practice eating mindfully.
Intuitive eating is a huge benefit for those who want to create a mindful home. Learn to eat when you are hungry, not when you are tired, sad, anxious or bored.
- Take it slow.
Since today’s climate is really fast-paced all of the time, we tend to crave balance by slowing down. Stop racing around frantically! When you slow down your physical actions, even just a little, you tend to relax. Take notice when you implement this tip! Do your shoulders relax? Does your jaw unclench? Do you feel more at east?
- Reset your mindset.
Don’t feel bad by taking a break in the middle of your day to calm your mind and reconnect with yourself. Your body craves balance, and a great way to achieve that balance is by doing nothing - absolutely nothing - for ten minutes a day.
Which of these seven tips are you going to implement to create a mindful home? We strongly suggest you consider taking a few minutes each day to nurture a home that is more mindful, a mind that is more peaceful, and an attitude that keeps you happier at all times.
