Daily Mindfulness Practices for the Busy Female Entrepreneur

Begin to notice the textures, smells, tastes, and sensations of the food on your tongue with every bite you take. Really enjoy your food, slow down when you eat and eliminate all distractions. Try to sit quietly by yourself with the TV off and focus on just your meal.

The word ‘mindful’ is regularly used by holistic gurus, but what does it really mean? Being mindful is living in the present moment by absorbing all that is happening around you. If we are constantly thinking about the past or the future, then we can’t truly live in the present. When we practice mindfulness, we experience all that life has to offer, rather than watching it pass us by. When we are mindful, we have a greater sense of appreciation for the world and its opportunities!

As a female entrepreneur, it is important to be focused and energized throughout the day. But how do you practice mindfulness every day with your busy schedule? Luckily, you can incorporate mindful actions into almost everything! You can turn basically everything you do throughout your day into a mindfulness practice. It may seem easier said than done; however, the daily practices below are perfect for even the busiest of all female entrepreneurs!

Daily Mindfulness Practice #1:

The first way you can start practicing mindfulness daily is by observing your breath. Wherever you are, tune-in to your breath to see what is happening. Is your breath short and shallow or maybe deep and slow? Our breath is often a direct reflection of our emotional body. By tuning into your breath, you observe yourself to be truly present and realize how you may be feeling moment to moment.

Daily Mindfulness Practice #2:

The next way to practice mindfulness is whenever you are sitting, walking, or jogging. Begin to notice how your body is grounded and supported. Acknowledge how you are being held by earth, gravity, and your muscles and bones. Create this sense of grounding that embodies you in every single moment. By noticing just how supported you are and realizing how things had to align perfectly in the world for you to be standing or sitting where we are right now, you are mindful of your presence on this Earth and living in the here and now.

Daily Mindfulness Practice #3:

Taking the above practice a step farther, you can also observe your posture. How are you sitting, standing, or jogging? Are you able to make healthy adjustments that allow you to feel more supported in the present moment? You can also do this simple activity of walking or sitting with intention and thoughtfulness. By having kindness and compassion for your posture, you are being mindful of sensations throughout your body and living in the present.

Daily Mindfulness Practice #4:

Another daily practice is mindful eating. Begin to notice the textures, smells, tastes, and sensations of the food on your tongue with every bite you take. Really enjoy your food, slow down when you eat and eliminate all distractions. Try to sit quietly by yourself with the TV off and focus on just your meal.

Daily Mindfulness Practice #5:

A great way to be mindful at any time is to tune-in with your senses. What do you hear right now, what can you see, what do you feel at this moment, what do you smell and taste? Name these things and allow yourself to be fully immersed in your current environment and aware of everything that is surrounding you.

Daily Mindfulness Practice #6:

You can also practice a body scan any time throughout your busy day. Begin by observing all sensations at the top of your head and work your way down your face, torso, arms, and legs. Notice how each part of your body feels. Where may you be able to release any tension or stress? By being present and realizing how each body part feels, you are truly mindful of your physical body and sensations.

If these practices don’t feel right for you, please make your own! The best part of practicing mindfulness is that it is all about being present with yourself and honoring wherever you are at the moment. Find a practice that feels right for you, which will be a sustainable practice that can fit into your busy schedule!
