Daily chaos: how I deal

Mindfulness, to me, can be as easy as closing my eyes and slowing down my breath to fully savor the moments in my day – even the challenging ones. 

Being fully present, even a moment at a time, has been one way I have found that increases my capacity for joy.  I am able to create more space in my daily life and fully experience living.

One of the things I love to do when things are feeling chaotic for me is meditation and yoga. No matter how my day was, I always felt a calming mood and peace afterwards! Also, and this be a little unorthodox LOL, but I go to the grocery store. That’s probably one of THE MOST chaotic places ever, but for some reason in the midst of that chaos, I feel a sense of peace. I don’t know if it’s the smell of the natural herbs and spices or the looking for the best deals, but every time I leave I always feel great about it.

My favorite thing to do is connect with nature and sometimes that means just stepping outside and looking at the beautiful sky, the cloud formations and the dancing of the trees. I meditate and do yoga but nature seems to work the best!

I’ve tried meditations many times, still couldn’t help but falling asleep. Maybe one I can do it if I keep practicing.

We'd love to hear your perspective.
