There are many mindfulness exercises that can help reduce stress and increase awareness. Some examples include:

  • Body scan meditation, where you focus on each part of your body in order, from toe to head or head to toe
  • Mindful breathing exercises, where you inhale, hold, and exhale to a count of four
  • The Raisin Exercise, where you focus on the sensory experience of eating a raisin
  • Self-compassion pause, where you take a moment to acknowledge and accept your feelings
  • Mindful seeing, where you focus on the details of your surroundings
  • Mindful eating, where you focus on the sensory experience of eating
  • Morning intention, where you set a mindful intention for the day

It’s important to remember that mindfulness is a training of the mind and may take time to see the benefits. It’s recommended to approach the process with self-compassion and allow for reflection, change, and flexibility between different exercises.
