The Mindful Home: 5 Practical Tips For Simple Living

The Mindful Home


Mindfulness is about adopting a kind approach towards yourself and those around you. A mindful home is a place where you practice these habits and the easiest place to start when inviting mindfulness and simple living into your life.


Make Your Bed

It takes less than five minutes to make your bed, two if you’re quick; making your bed is a “mood boosting” task that is simple to carry out yet has a big impact on your day. It is the keystone of a productive routine. The habit of making your bed straight after getting out of it will become a catalyst for adopting other feel-good tasks, and is the perfect way to start each day.


Set Your Intentions

A mindful home is one full of good intentions. We’re often in so much of a rush in the mornings we forget to spend a moment thinking about what we hope to achieve. Over breakfast, consider what your intentions are for the day and set some goals. It will set focus and intention for the entire day and a sense of achievement by the end of it.


Clean Up After Yourself

The simplest way to keep a mindful home is to clean up after yourself. A cluttered environment will impact your physical and mental wellbeing. Wash the dishes, fold away the laundry, put books back on the shelf, and hang up your clothes; putting everything back where it belongs at the end of the day results in a peaceful environment to live and relax.


Practice Intentional Eating

Food is as much about nourishment as it is enjoyment. Intentional eating is about listening to our bodies, giving it the fuel it needs while enjoying the food we’re eating in the moment. Make sure to take care of yourself by practising mindful eating; learn to banish negativity feelings surrounding food and nourish your body to make it stronger. Never underestimate how important it is to be kind to yourself through the meals you eat.


Hit Pause

In a mindful home, getting things done is as important as taking the time to relax. It’s important not to rush but still achieve our tasks and intentions while reserving a little time each day to slow down and recuperate. Keep a steady pace throughout your day by being mindful of your mental and physical states. When you need to slow down, hit pause. Make your home a welcoming place for you to slow down when you need to take breaks to “reset” and recharge.
