Practicing Mindfulness in Quarantine

While we adjust to our temporary new normal with social distancing and self-isolation measures, you may be feeling more stressed or anxious. One way you can help to ease these feelings of anxiousness is by practicing mindfulness. You can use mindfulness when you are starting to recognise you are getting feelings of stress to ground yourself and get out of the unhelpful headspace and more present in the current moment.

What is mindfulness?

Mindfulness is being in the moment, not being distracted by external influences or even your own thoughts and
feelings. It’s derived from meditation and yoga, where being calm, focused, and in the moment are key parts of
their philosophies.

Being mindful allows us to be more present in the moment. With practice, you can learn to catch your thoughts and
feelings before they begin to influence your behaviour. The more you incorporate mindfulness into your daily life, the better at being in the moment you will be. This will make it easier for you to increase your ability to focus on tasks and ignore distractions.

This booklet is full of mindfulness exercises and information that you can use in your everyday life. Each exercise has a beginner and an intermediate exercise level accompanied by an example. Simply practice each beginner exercise
before moving on to the intermediate version.

It’s also very useful to use one of the many mindfulness apps available to guide you in how to utilise mindfulness when you are feeling the pressure building. You can find more information about these in our booklet.

You can download the booklet here.
