5 Ways to Practice Mindfulness Today | Empowering Boudoir Photographer

Life comes at you fast. If you don’t stop and look around every once in a while, you might miss it. Is it me or is life getting faster and faster? I wonder if it’s from getting older, or from having kids, or the world is actually going around a little quicker. Whatever it is, I’m trying my best to live in the moment and practice mindfulness. Mindfulness is such a nice word! Here’s how I’m trying to practice mindfulness every day.

Eat Dinner With Your Family

It’s definitely hard to get everyone together but it’s so worth it. Catching up over dinner is a great because it’s a chance to hear about everyone’s day (and to wrangle the kiddos) while enjoying a meal together. It’s a great reminder everyday that the kids won’t be this little forever.  It makes me grateful!

Enjoy The Way Your Body Takes Care of You

This body is the only body I’ll ever get! There are tons of great conversations out there about loving your body, and how to love your body but I think we can all agree that whatever body you’re in, that’s the one for you! A great way to stop overthinking and practice mindfulness is to enjoy your body, and how it takes care of by celebrating it with exercise, or a bubble bath, or a boudoir shoot!

Mono-Task

As a mom, multi-tasking is life. Sometimes though, I feel like it pulls my attention in all different directions. I’m working on doing only one thing at a time. Doing it that way makes me feel like I’m actually getting more things done. Do you babes feel like that? When you work on things, are you focusing on one or more? I’d love to hear about it!

Call Your Friends

Friendships are like plants. They need attention! Everyone has their own crazy lives and it can be hard to reach out, but I know I love when someone sends me an out of the blue text asking about my day.  Sending a sweet text or leaving a comment on their Instagram is a tiny way to reach out, and make your friends feel loved. And who doesn’t love love?

Go Out in Nature

I am so excited that summer is here! Not only is summer prime wedding season, which means that I get to spend my days doing what I love, which is capturing love in print (and digital!) but it also means days out in the park, late sunsets and of course beach days! Nature is an awesome way to practice mindfulness, because it sort of forces you to pay attention to the world, and how wonderful it is.
