As a Certified Wellness Coach or Professional Mind Body Fitness Coach, you can teach your clients practical mindfulness activities that can be incorporated into their lifestyle to help improve their focus, lower stress, reduce conflicts, and enhance their decision-making skills over time.
Take a Walk
Taking a quiet walk around your neighborhood after a long day can be useful. Make an effort to notice specific sights, sounds and smells and embrace your feelings in the present moment. Try to walk near natural elements if possible.
Listen to a Song
Music can be very soothing yet energizing and used to relax the mind. Listen for specific key changes, crescendos, and changes in tempo or just focus on enjoying the song.
Stop Checking the News
News is seldom good or useful for helping one live in the moment – and if something truly monumental happens, chances are you will hear of it without constantly checking updates.
Get the important basics in the morning and then disconnect for the day until the evening news if you really like to stay updated. This is a practice for improved happiness.
Accept Your Emotions
Allow yourself to feel emotions as they come throughout the day and try not to pass negative judgment on yourself for them.
Accept the presence of the emotions without judgment and let them go as quickly as they came.
Practice Mindful Appreciation
At the end of the day take time to recognize and write down five things that happened in your day that were seemingly insignificant blessings that went unappreciated.
These can be objects, events or people. Something as simple as minimal traffic on the way to work, the 15 minutes you were able to spend outside in the sun during your lunch break, or the compliment someone gave you on your hair or clothes should be noted for an improved appreciation of the little things over time.
