Focus on Breath

  • Begin your workout with a few minutes of deep breathing. This simple practice calms the mind and prepares your body for physical activity
  • Try inhaling for a count of four, holding for four, and exhaling for four to synchronize your breath

Body Scan

Perform a quick body scan to assess how you’re feeling physically. Are there any areas of tension or discomfort? Acknowledge them and set an intention to release and relax

Present Moment Awareness

Pay full attention to your movements, whether it’s lifting weights, running, or practicing yoga. Focus on the sensation of each movement, engaging all your senses

Stay Curious

Approach your workout with curiosity and non-judgment. Notice any thoughts or distractions that arise and gently bring your focus back to your body and breath

Stretch and Breathe

As you conclude your workout, use stretching as an opportunity for mindfulness. Feel the stretch and breathe deeply, allowing your body to relax and recover

Gratitude Practice

After your workout, take a moment to express gratitude for your body and the opportunity to move and exercise. This positive mindset enhances overall well-being

Mindfulness is a powerful tool that can elevate your fitness routine to new heights. By incorporating mindfulness techniques into your warm-up, workout, and cool down, you’ll not only improve physical performance but also cultivate a deeper connection between your mind and body.
