Mindful Transitions

Personalized support for learning how to integrate mindfulness into your life. Delivered fresh everyday by our world renowned experts. Choose meditation duration:

Hi, and welcome to your Daily Mindfulness.

Today, I'm going to share a

mindfulness micro practice

called a mindful transition.

So as we normally go throughout our

day, it's really easy to get kind

of caught up in autopilot mode,

just going through the motions.

So we maybe have done our meditation

in the morning, but then the rest of

the day, we end up in a, in a haze

of doing, a haze of automaticity.

So by learning how to sprinkle more

short mindful moments throughout

our day, we can infuse our life with

more calm, clarity and presence.

So mindful transitions are actually

one of my own personal favorite ways to

bring more mindfulness into daily life.

And it's also really, really

simple and accessible.

So the invitation here is to just

take a short pause as you transition

from one event or task to the next.

So you just take a moment to be still

and with your eyes open or closed, take

at least one slow breath in and out.

If you have the ability, it's even

better if you can take five breaths,

which takes less than 30 seconds.

So you can practice a mindful transition,

for instance, when you say finished

preparing food or tea and you're

transitioning to eating or drinking it,

or when you pull up in your car, and

this is my personal favorite, you pull

up in your car and just before you get

out, you take a mindful transition.

So any significant task at work, like

an email or a call you've just made, you

can do a mindful transition after that.

Or after the shower.

So today's invitation is really simple.

Just see if you can practice some mindful

transitions and see how it feels for you.

What effect it has on your body, on

your mind and the quality of your day.

I think that you'll find that

this practice really has the power

to permeate your life with more

presence, intention, and purpose.

So wishing you a great

day of practice ahead.

And as always, thank you for your

practice and your presence here with us.

And now let's settle in

for today's meditation.
