Four Ways to Cultivate Mindfulness


Wolf and Serpa




Four informal, but practical ways, to incorporate and cultivate mindfulness into your daily life - Presented and prepared by C. Wolf, MD, PhD and G. Serpa, PhD.


Browning is this idea that we're just coming back into our body. So often, on we’re in our head when we're an autopilot. We’re not really in our body, but we are either lost in the past, or we are thinking about the future. So grounding is any activity that brings us back into the body. In this moment, the way to do that is just by starting to feel your feet so you can feel the contact that your feet are having with the floor.

You can do that when you're sitting. You can do that when you're walking, very simple, you can also look, you can just orient yourself really in the room instead of being lost in thought—really saying like what am I seeing right now. You. You focus on the sound. You can use all of your senses if you want to do a little bit more of a formal grounding practice. You would feel your feet on the floor, and then you would feel where else your body has contact with, the chair that you're sitting on so the legs the back.
