  1. Go for a tech-free walk. Spend some time in nature without any technology on your body. See how it feels to go even just 15 minutes without a phone to reach for!
  2. Enjoy daily tasks. Be aware when you’re doing things like brushing your teeth, making dinner, putting on the wash. Let yourself experience the task, rather than just hurrying to finish it.
  3. Have a long chat with a friend. Spend some time with someone and be present. Be a good listener and pay attention to what they’re saying.
  4. Get barefoot on the earth. There’s nothing like connecting with nature than being barefoot. Whether it’s at the beach or in the park, let yourself receive the abundant benefits of getting grounded.
  5. Eat a meal on your own. It’s awesome to have meals with friends, but take some time to enjoy a meal with yourself! Slow down and be present with the food that nourishes you.
  6. Try something new. Doing something unfamiliar or learning about something new is the best exercise for your brain!
  7. Have a bedtime ritual. Do something special for yourself at the end of the day–you deserve it. Whether that’s making a cup of tea, having a bath, or listening to music in bed, make your bedtime special.
  8. Do a good deed. This can be anything–holding the door for someone, being nice in traffic, or even making dinner for a friend or partner.
  9. Let yourself have the feels. Mindfulness isn’t just about being positive. It’s about being aware of what you’re feeling, whether that is good or bad. When you’re aware of your feelings and choose to respond rather than react, then you can make more mindful decisions.
  10. Be silly. What better way to be present and get caught in the moment than to do something silly? Laughter is the best medicine. Hands down.

I started YogaHub out of a room at the back of someone else's house back in 2012 with nothing more than an idea. I'd been teaching Yoga since 2008 and had no intention of opening a Yoga Studio. I think, like everything I've done, I just decided one day I was going to give it a try. And try I did and if you're reading this I guess I'm still trying.
