Mindfulness Can Be HARD! Try These Breathing Exercises for Mindfulness Maybe you were introduced to mindfulness through a friend, or a book, maybe even in a yoga class...and you were instantly intrigued! But what is mindfulness? Oxford defines it as:

A mental state achieved by focusing one's awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one's feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations.

But if you’re like most people a mindfulness practice is an on-again, off-again relationship that has been hard. Much harder than expected. Why is that?!? Why is being fully present and aware seemingly unattainable? Don’t beat yourself up!

There are natural tendencies of the mind that seem to work against us and require some tools to manage all the goings-on inside our minds. We will look at some easy-to-do breathing exercises for mindfulness, and understand the natural tendencies of the mind first. Then observe how mindfulness can become part naturally :)
