What does your mindfulness practice look like?
When I began my mindfulness journey in college, it always seemed difficult. It seemed to make me hyper-aware of my inadequacies and inability to "zen." However, with enough practice, my practice began to integrate itself throughout my daily life. Now, I use mindfulness in small moments throughout the day - "breathe in blue, breathe out red" or allowing time to mindfully wash dishes rather than going through the motions. Now, mindfulness is a way of life that helps me stay present.
