You’ve got bills to pay, errands to run, phone calls to return, and about 100 emails that are waiting for responses. There just isn’t enough time in the day! With all the stresses and fast pace of modern-day life, sometimes it’s important to take time to slow down. Just a few daily minutes of calm can make a huge impact on your mental health. Setting a daily goal to focus on your own mindfulness can transform the way you feel for the better.

Here are five tips to help bring zen into your life.

  1. Meditate. Meditation is a key practice when it comes to finding zen. Whether you prefer a guided group meditation or are comfortable finding a quiet corner at home, regular meditation can have a positive influence on your life. Benefits of meditation include reducing stress, relieving anxiety, and helping you feel happier.

  1. Yoga. Practicing yoga can be incredibly healing. It will not only help you get in touch with your body but can also calming to the mind. By incorporating yoga into your routine, you will feel both mentally and physically invigorated.

  2. Disconnect. These days, we are constantly plugged into our phones, computers, tablets, and social media. We have the urge to constantly check out our phones and almost feel naked without them. A little time spent away from your devices can help you become more present in your own life. Put down your phone, disconnect with technology and reconnect with yourself.

  3. Breathe. Inhale. Exhale. Deep, slow breathing can help you feel more relaxed and reduce your anxiety. Go outside, enjoy nature and the benefits of mindful breathing. You’ll instantly feel calmer.

  4. Enjoy some Relaxation. Sometimes a little “me time” is much needed to maintain your sanity. Take a warm bubble bath, read a book, and enjoy a cup of tea. Pamper yourself and destress with a massage from Mobile Styles, the on-demand beauty and wellness app. With Mobile Styles, a licensed massage therapist will come to your home to help you unwind and find some peace.

Practice Gratitude. If nothing else, spend some time remembering what you have to be thankful for. Appreciation for the good things in your life will help you feel happier and more positive.
