  • Write your thoughts down

    By Teen Rehab

    Writing down what happened in your day helps you to reflect and think about your day. Identify individual moments and how they made you feel physically, emotionally and mentally.

  • Focus on daily activities

    By Teen Rehab

    Being mindful is something you can practice all day. Instead of rushing through menial, regular activities, focus on them and be mindful of what’s happening and how you’re feeling when accomplishing them.

  • Make meditating a habit

    By Teen Rehab

    Practice meditation everyday at the same time to make it routine. Once it’s a habit, it’s harder to fall back into old ways.

  • Focus on your breathing

    By Teen Rehab

    Our breathing patterns can tell us how we’re feeling depending on how fast, slow, shallow or deep they are. Listen to your breathing and try to regulate it with deep inhales and exhales if it feels or sounds irregular.

  • Do one thing at a time

    By Teen Rehab

    We all have busy days when we’re rushing to get things done, but focusing on one task at a time is healthier for our minds and productivity.

  • Unplug from technology

    By Teen Rehab

    Putting down our phones and connecting with family and friends is one way to be mindful of the people around us and how we feel in their presence.

  • Accept the moment

    If you’re feeling sad, let yourself feel sad—mindfulness means accepting all things that come your way and finding a way to deal with them.
