Other primary aspects of developing mindfulness are having a commitment to regular practice and intentionality. Regular practice of mindfulness involves having a planned and consistent mindful activity as part of your regular routine. Examples include:


1️⃣Daily mindfulness meditation, a form of sitting meditation using moment-to-moment awareness

2️⃣Yoga

3️⃣Mindful walking daily

4️⃣Mindful eating several times a week

5️⃣Body scan meditation—tuning into bodily sensations while in a meditative state

Noticing your breathing at times during the day to develop awareness of self in your normal routine Using any of these practices can help to develop a mindful approach to living by bringing full attention to each moment, without judgment, while maintaining a feeling of calm.

🔹Intentionality is the mindset with which one begins this practice.

🔹Eating mindfully is a practice that requires a commitment to behavior change similar to that needed for any diet or eating plan; at a diet’s core is the need to pay attention. It is important to restate that the main benefit of mindful eating is not weight loss. However, it is highly likely that people who adopt mindful eating as a regular practice will lose excess weight and keep it off.
