Mindfulness is the practice of ensuring that your mind is entirely focused on what’s going on, what you’re doing, and the environment you’re in. That may appear insignificant, except for the fact that we frequently stray from the topic at hand. Our minds take flight, we lose contact with our bodies, and we find ourselves immersed in obsessive thoughts about something that just happened or worrying about the future. That makes us anxious, worried and uncomfortable.
Mindfulness is the fundamental human ability to be completely present, aware of where we are and what we are doing, without becoming overly reactive or overwhelmed by what is going on around us.
The Benefits of Mindfulness
When we practice mindfulness, it is not necessary to focus on the advantages, but rather to focus on the exercise itself; however, there are many benefits that mindfulness provides. When we are mindful, we minimise stress, improve performance, acquire insight and awareness by studying our own minds, and pay more attention to the well-being of others.
Mindfulness allows us to suspend judgement and explore our natural curiosity in the workings of the mind, approaching our experience with warmth and kindness—both to ourselves and to others.
The Types of Mindfulness Practice
While mindfulness is innate, it can be cultivated through proven techniques. The main goal of mindfulness is to pay complete, conscious attention to everything you are doing. Paying attention is the key to becoming present and being anchored in the present moment, not living in the past or worrying about the future, but just enjoying life as it was intended to be lived. When you start paying attention again, you initiate fundamental changes that have an impact on your entire life. You start seeing the world with the same zest, freshness, and delight that you had as a youngster. Anxiety, tension, dissatisfaction, and tiredness all can be reduced through practicing mindfulness.
Here are some examples of mindfulness techniques:

2. Physical Exercises
3. Sensory Exercises

Mindfulness at iView
We are thrilled to launch our brand-new iView Mindfulness Video Series. A series of instructive and enjoyable courses can help you improve your mindfulness, study, and workplace abilities if you carefully follow the Mindfulness for Study book. Each video corresponds to a different chapter in the Mindfulness for Study book, and it guides you through the book with interactive features, exercises, and quizzes. You may pause the videos at any moment and start where you left off when you are ready, taking notes and underlining key points on your printed copy.
Our interactive Mindfulness for Study tutorials were developed with the help of our partners at Loughborough University. The films are intended to assist anyone suffering from mental health issues and anxiety, as well as to give fantastic advice for anyone on the Autistic Spectrum or who is simply finding life more difficult. The Mindfulness for Study teaching series is based on the best-selling book of the same name. To obtain the Mindfulness for Study e-book, please contact iView.
Being at University is rapidly becoming a large source of stress for many individuals. Multiple classes, a job, a social life, and a million other things to juggle is a lot to handle all at once. Don’t let yourself become too overwhelmed by everything. Instead, try these five student-friendly mindfulness methods to assist in relieving the stress. These mindfulness strategies may be used anytime and anyplace to fit around your busy schedule.
1. Breathing Exercises
In stressful times, even taking a moment to observe your breathing might be beneficial. Breathing exercises might help slow down your heart rate and lower your blood pressure. Breathing can also convey a relaxation signal to your brain, which can help your whole body relax. Try one of these breathing exercises the next time you need to take a break:
Deep Breathing: Simply breathe gently in through your nose and out through your mouth. If it helps, take four seconds to inhale and exhale for the same length of time.
Resonance Breathing: While laying on your back inhale gently for six seconds, then exhale slowly for six seconds. Repeat for another 10 minutes, or as needed.
Alternate-Nostril Breathing: Close one nostril and take a deep breath in. Before exhaling, open your closed nostril and seal the other nose. Repeat the procedure as needed.
Affirming Phrase: Say anything you’d want to manifest while you take a breath. “I breathe in serenity,” for example. Say anything you want to get rid of as you exhale. “I breathe tension out.” This activity should be repeated several times until you are relaxed.
2. Physical Exercises
When you’re anxious or overloaded, another mindfulness practise to try is physical exercise. Physical activity does not have to be strenuous; often the most beneficial physical activity is just getting out of your chair and moving around for a few minutes. Try one of these exercises the next time you need to get up and move:
- Take a stroll
- Do a simple activity like getting the mail or take out the bin
- Perform a “body scan” from head to toe, concentrating on how your complete body feels.
- Do some simple yoga positions.
- Dance along or sing to your favourite music.
Sensory exercises are an excellent approach to cultivate mindfulness by focusing on immediate, physical sensations. This is a technique for bringing oneself back to the current moment and space. Try these sensory activities:
- Put your hands in warm or cool water
- Hold some ice in your palms, or rub it on your wrists
- Something soothing to touch or hold like a soft blanket, a stuffed animal
- Enjoy a smell you like, for example, light a candle, brew a cup of tea, or spray some of your favourite perfume
- Pay attention and listen to your surroundings
4. Anchoring Phrase
Try repeating an anchoring phrase if you need something short and relaxing to keep you anchored. Your anchoring phrase can be consistent (an inspiring quotation or remark) or it can be about something present. Repeat whatever brings you comfort. An anchoring sentence may look like this:
“My name is…” “Today is…” “Right now, I’m feeling…”
5. 5-4-3-2-1 Technique
5-4-3-2-1 is a simple mindfulness practise that can be performed anywhere and takes only a few minutes. This workout uses the five senses to help you to focus on your environment and your body. The steps for the 5-4-3-2-1 technique are as follows:
- What are 5 things you hear?
- What are 4 things you see?
- What are 3 things you can touch?
- What are 2 things you can smell?
- What is 1 thing you can taste?
