Mindful Tucson Winters

A Quick Mindfulness Practice

Here is how we use the acronym STOP in mindfulness:

  • Stop – Slow Down; Pause; Realize you are ruminating, reacting, or simply getting ahead of yourself.
  • Take a breath – Find the breath; Be more conscious of what is going on in your nervous system; No judgment necessary.
  • Open – Expand; Consider the bigger picture; Be present.
  • Proceed –  Respond consciously;  Act intentionally;  It’s OK not to know or do much right now.

Use STOP anytime to keep daily stress from building up, especially with the extra pressure of the holidays.
