Appreciation as a Mindfulness Practice: Focusing on the Small Moments

In today’s world, where we are constantly bombarded with information and distractions, it can be challenging to stay present and mindful. However, with a little effort and practice, we can cultivate mindfulness and appreciation as a daily habit. One way to do this is by focusing on small moments of beauty and gratitude in our lives.

Appreciation is a powerful tool for mindfulness because it helps us to shift our focus away from negativity and towards positivity. When we appreciate the small things in life, we become more aware of the present moment and can connect with the beauty that surrounds us.

Here are a few tips on how to incorporate appreciation into your daily life:

  1. Start your day with gratitude: Begin each day by taking a few moments to express gratitude for the simple things in your life. Whether it’s the warmth of the sun on your face or the sound of birds chirping outside your window, take a moment to appreciate it.
  2. Practice mindfulness: Mindfulness is the practice of being fully present in the moment, without judgment or distraction. Take a few moments each day to be mindful of your surroundings, your thoughts, and your emotions. As you become more mindful, you will begin to appreciate the small moments of beauty that exist in your life.
  3. Keep a gratitude journal: At the end of each day, take a few moments to write down three things that you are grateful for. This simple practice can help to shift your focus towards the positive aspects of your life and cultivate a sense of appreciation.
  4. Practice random acts of kindness: Doing something kind for someone else can be a powerful way to cultivate appreciation and mindfulness. Whether it’s buying a coffee for a stranger or helping a friend in need, these small acts of kindness can help you to feel more connected to the world around you.

By focusing on appreciation and mindfulness in our daily lives, we can cultivate a deeper sense of connection and gratitude. It’s important to remember that mindfulness is a practice and it takes time and effort to cultivate. But with a little patience and consistency, we can learn to appreciate the small moments of beauty that exist in our lives and find greater happiness and fulfillment.

Hi love, I’m Silvia!

I’m a specialist in starting over. 

Trauma revealed truths that took me to some faraway places for healing and wisdom. In Bali, South America, New Zealand, Australia, Laos, Hawaii and Malaysia, I soaked it up, took bold actions, and expanded what was possible for me.

Through all of this I learned something profound; the power of resiliency can be taught and even making a 5% change can change the future dramatically.

Now I teach women like you to access the power within you to change your life, celebrate your genius and start over to create any life you dare to dream.
