ZS Archives | Mindfulness exercises to try when you are overstressed

One of the easiest ways of practising to be mindful is to simply start focusing on your breathing. This will feed your brain with some much-needed oxygen and keep your mind focused on one activity.

Some techniques include:


  • Find a quiet space in your home where you can sit for a few minutes and close your eyes to prevent distractions
  • Relax your body as much as possible, releasing tension in your shoulders. Focus on your breathing, breathing in and out mindfully
  • If you find your mind wandering off you can bring yourself back by repeating “I breathe in, I breathe out” focusing on finding your calm space when you breathe in and letting go of your stress when you breathe out
  • If your thoughts distract you, simply observe them and return your attention on your breathing exercise
