Mindful Monday: Mindful Diet


So as promised in last week's Mindful Monday post, this post is about the type of "mindful diet" that I follow. While trying to ensure I only put wholesome, natural foods in my body, I also utilize other mindful techniques to ensure my body is functioning at its best. I have created a list of my daily habits that I include in my "mindful diet."

  • Green Tea and Honey: 

I love to have a cup of green tea with a honey stick each morning.
  • Morning Meditation:
Practicing meditation each morning when I wake up really helps me focus on the my breath and the present.

  •  Sun Salutations:

Doing daily Sun Salutations helps to get my body moving, while still remaining in the moment.
  • Oatmeal with Flax and Blueberries:

Nothing like a hot bowl of steel-cut oats with flax seeds and wild blueberries.
  • Indie Music:

My favorite radio station broadcast live from Emerson
  • Deep Breathing:
Deep breathing exercises help to refocus my mind
  • Fidget Breaks:

Fidget breaks are movement breaks where my kiddos and I do guided stretches and physical activities to "get the wiggles out"
  • Water, Water, Water:

I try to drink at 6-8 cups of ice water, preferably with lemon
  • Afternoon Meditation:
One of my favorite times of the day 
  • Evening Run:

My evening run helps me to clear out my head while keeping my body and heart healthy
  •  7-8 Hours of Sleep:

Duh!
What are some of your daily habits for a healthier, more mindful lifestyle?



Cheers,

  1. I love the idea of figit breaks. Have you done a post with the exercises that you do with your students? I would love to hear about what you do! I have been trying to incorporate some of yoga deep breathing and small stretches into my classroom but haven't done anything consistent yet.

  2. I have not done a "fidget" post yet, but what a great idea. I will definitely make it a point to write that post soon :) Thanks for the great idea!

  3. Love your tips about a 'mindful diet.' I've always wanted to incorporate meditation into my daily routine, but haven't been able to find the time or a way to incorporate it. I have been doing yoga and that has helped.

    I too would love to hear more about fidget breaks.
