How many times have you said hurtful things to other people just because you’re stressed?
The problem lies in people’s lack of mindfulness. Mindfulness is defined as the  awareness that arises by giving full attention to the current situation, purposefully being in the present moment without any form of judgment. 
Out of 7.9 billion people in the world, only 200-500 million are practicing mindfulness through meditation, which is only 6.32 percent. Achieving the state of mindfulness entails a long journey but it is definitely doable. Below are three effective practices that you can adapt to be more mindful of your thoughts, words, and actions.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]1. Focus on your breathing.
When you find yourself having negative thoughts and it feels like you cannot stop them, take a deep breath and focus on your breathing. Feel your breathing as you take it in and exhale it out. This way, you get to calm yourself and release the gloomy outlook.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]2. Live in the moment.
Our lives belong in the now; not in the past nor in the days to come. To prevent feeling anxious, appreciate the moments happening in the present and find ways to enjoy them by smiling or doing acts of kindness.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]3. Give your undivided attention.
If you’re dining with your family, friends, or significant other, pay full attention to what is currently happening by putting down your phone and not thinking about work or other stuff. Your undivided attention will be very much appreciated by the people in your life. In addition, you also get to strengthen being mindful of what’s happening in front of you.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]
Achieving mindfulness involves transformation. Despite it being an extensive path, the outcome of being more at peace with yourself is definitely worth it.
