Using mindfulness techniques can help you to simplify your inner life by turning your attention from troubling thoughts and focusing on the moment. Mindfulness instruction is available at a growing number of health centers, Y’s, and yoga centers, but you can start by applying the following technique to one of your routine tasks.

Be aware. Start by bringing your attention to the sensations in your body. How fast is your heart beating? Are your hands warm or cold?

Breathe deeply. Breathe in through your nose, allowing the air to fill your lungs. Let your abdomen expand fully. Then breathe out slowly through your mouth. This pattern may slow down your heart rate and lower your blood pressure, helping you relax. Notice the sensations of each inhalation and exhalation.

Focus. Proceed with the task at hand slowly and with full deliberation.

Feel. Engage your senses fully. Notice each sight, touch, and sound so that you savor every sensation.

Refocus. When you notice that your mind has wandered from the task at hand, gently bring your attention back to the sensations of the moment.
