Practice Mindfulness

Paying more attention to the present moment – to your own thoughts and feelings, and to the world around you – can improve your mental well-being.

As well as practising mindfulness in daily life, it can be helpful to set aside time for a more formal mindfulness practice.

Mindfulness meditation involves sitting silently and paying attention to thoughts, sounds, the sensations of breathing or parts of the body, bringing your attention back whenever the mind starts to wander.

Yoga and tai chi can also help with developing awareness of your breathing.
