MIND CHALLENGE ACTIVITIES
- Try practicing mindfulness or mini Meditation , a practice to bring your attention and focus to the moment, rather than dwelling on what could happen in the future or what happened in the past.
- The practice of meditation aims to quiet the mind in order to experience greater peace and tranquility. Through meditation, one strives for a state of mindfulness, where it is possible to live in the present moment without carrying regrets over past actions or worry over future events.
- Learn to center yourself in as little as 5 minutes each day: try lying quietly on your bed and concentrate on your breathing. When your mind begins to wander, gently draw your attention back to focusing on your breathing.
- Take time to write down three things you are grateful for. By becoming more aware of the good things in life, you may find that it is easier to maintain a positive attitude in difficult situations, and feel better equipped to handle challenges.
