10 essential habits of mindfulness:
 
These 10 daily habits to practice mindfulness will help you to connect with the joy and balance that can be found within each present moment.

1. Release Judgment

This not only applies to others, but to yourself as well. Don’t judge yourself so harshly for your perceived faults. Instead, honor the strengths within you. Remind yourself that there is no wrong way, only another way.

2. Honor your Feelings


Fighting against your emotions and thoughts will only increase anxiety. Slow down and acknowledge what you are feeling and the reasons why. By approaching your feelings with a calm mindset you can stop negative emotions in their tracks.

3. Remember to Breathe
Breath is the essence of life, and consciously being aware of your breathing has dramatic affects on the mind and body. Make it a daily habit to stop throughout the day and take several slow, deep breaths.
4. Make Time for Yourself Everyday

You cannot take care of others if you are not taking care of yourself. When practicing mindful living, give yourself the gift of taking time each day to honor your own needs.
5. Notice the Small Things in Life

Living in a mindful state means appreciating and acknowledging the simple joys of the world around you. Make time for a short walk everyday, and use this time to focus on the simple beauty that surrounds you.
6. Live your Passion

Live your passion, and all else will follow. Be aware of your emotions throughout the day, and make it a habit to look for the positive in every situation.
7. Smile at Strangers

A smile and kind word has the power to turn around someone’s day. Practice reaching beyond your comfort zone and share your joy with the world. A candle loses nothing by lighting another candle.
8. Unplug from Technology

Technology is involved in every aspect of modern society, and the constant distractions have disconnected us from each other and ourselves. Take time each day to completely unplug from the blackhole of technology and spend quality time with those you love. 


9. Try Mindful Meditation

Mindful meditation focuses on the idea that you are not your thoughts. Through conscious breathing and honoring of your emotions, practicing mindful meditation will teach you to reconnect with the present moment.
10. Focus on One Task at a Time

Multi-tasking is the norm in today’s society, but trying to do everything at once is the opposite of practicing a mindful life. Prioritize your to-do lists and take on tasks one at a time.

Living a mindful life is a simple idea, but one that is hard to put into practice in this modern world. Release judgment as you start to incorporate these daily habits into your life, knowing that every moment is the perfect moment to begin anew.

    The unexpected math behind Van Gogh's "Starry Night" - Natalya St. Clair


    Published on Oct 30, 2014
    View full lesson: http://ed.ted.com/lessons/the-unexpec...

    Physicist
    Werner Heisenberg said, “When I meet God, I am going to ask him two
    questions: why relativity? And why turbulence? I really believe he will
    have an answer for the first.” As difficult as turbulence is to
    understand mathematically, we can use art to depict the way it looks.
    Natalya St. Clair illustrates how Van Gogh captured this deep mystery of
    movement, fluid and light in his work.
