4 M’s to Motivate a Mindful Routine

Author: The Organika Team | March 23, 2020

Our routines are different, we’re all adapting to a new normal – at least for now. Since most of us have a bit of extra time on our really clean hands these days, let’s focus on what we can control.

Structure and routine make us feel grounded. To help get centred, let’s map out the day and create room for the 4 M’s. Starting each day with a mindful routine can help settle feelings of chaos and anxiety, calm the mind, body and soul. Creating a deliberate and intentional morning routine can provide a sense of emotional balance that carries through your entire day.

Meaningful Engagement

Social distancing doesn’t mean social isolation or emotional distancing. Reach out to family to stay connected. Set up group chats and FaceTime with friends far away – chances are they’re in the same boat and craving interaction. Smile and thank the people working in the stores you visit. Make the most of this time to make someone’s day.

Meditation

Meditation is a habitual process of training your mind to focus and redirect your thoughts. The list of benefits is long, but some of the highlights include:

  • reducing stress and anxiety
  • promoting emotional health
  • reducing blood pressure
  • improving sleep

It can be done almost anywhere (find a comfortable seat and get in position) and you can choose the length and theme of your practice. And there are free apps galore that will guide you through the entire process. Try Insight Timer and Calm to get started.

Mindfulness

Mindfulness is the basic human ability to be fully present and aware. In simpler terms, it changes how we react to everything. Being mindful is about paying attention to where we are and what we’re doing, without being overly reactive or overwhelmed. From your breathing to the flavour of your breakfast, every little detail can shift things.

When we’re mindful, we reduce stress, enhance performance, gain insight and awareness through observing our own mind, while increasing our attention to others’ well-being. Mindfulness is more than just a practice. It brings awareness and caring into everything we do. Even a little makes our lives better. Here are some great places to find out more:

Movement

Get outside for a walk or a run if the weather allows. Follow along with some yoga videos or try this 5-minute arm workout.

Exercise has so many physical and emotional benefits: releasing endorphins, improving sleep and mood, strengthening muscles and bones, upping energy levels, curing boredom. If you’re feeling cooped up and need to get the blood flowing, find a way to add movement into your days. And the comfort food tastes that much better when you’ve moved your body!
