Mindfulness is the practice of paying attention in the present moment and being aware of one’s own thoughts and feelings. It’s been shown to have a significant impact on our happiness, blood pressure, and stress levels. In fact, mindfulness has been recommended in recent years as an essential life skill by leading organizations such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO).
Below, I’ve created a list of 365 Mindfulness Questions to ask yourself each morning.
Here’s an example of NOT being Mindful (being present in the moment): I was distracted this morning. Forgot my wallet on the way to the office. There were too many things in my head. I was constantly thinking about what I should do next, or how to solve a problem I was facing. I ate breakfast while glancing at my phone – and the TV was on in the background. It was probably mentally exhausting and I didn’t even realize it.
The practice of mindfulness is an important part of your mental health.
Mindfulness is a meditation practice and so important for every day living because it helps you to be present in the moment, it stops you and makes you think of what you’re doing on a daily basis.
How does mindfulness benefit the human body?
The benefits of mindfulness are plenty. It helps by lowering your heart rate, it’s excellent for your emotional health and helps you live your best life by seeing the bigger picture.
I’ve been noticing lately how often my mind wanders. And so, for the past two months, I have been writing down 10 daily mindfulness questions that I should ask myself every morning.
I have to say, it’s been a great way for me to identify what’s been distracting me in my daily life. Writing these mindful questions down has helped me concentrate on having a good time, and forced me away from negative emotions and various things that are taking up too much of my time. Nowadays, these questions don’t even need answers; they just need to help me think about what the day will bring.
What are the top 10 Mindfulness questions I should say to myself every morning?
Mindfulness is a practice in which one intentionally observes their thoughts, feelings and behaviors, without judgment. This helps to reduce stress and panic attacks by bringing the mind back to the present moment.
There are many ways in which you can use mindfulness, but the purpose of this exercise is to get yourself into a routine of thinking about your daily lives and results. Some of us may have a high-stress life that involves deadlines, work, family and social obligations. A daily routine is essential to balance all these elements.
Here are 10 questions you should ask yourself every morning as a starting point for your day.
The following questions will help you keep track of your progress as well as keep yourself on task throughout each day.
What do I want? (I want happiness.)
What do I need? (I need success.)
What do I feel? (I feel tired.)
What do I enjoy? (I enjoy being with my kids.)
What do I need? (I need to be happy…)
And specifically, focus on these questions each morning:
What is my biggest problem today?
What would make me happy by the end of the day?
How could I make my life just a little bit better?
How can I change my life for the better?
How can I create a new habit that will last forever?
Taking a little time each day to focus on your breath and your thoughts will have positive benefits and can help you to live a happier, more productive life.
If you’re not sure how to get started, try using one of the questions from the list below to get you started.
