Monday Mindfulness: Is the Way You Listen Affecting Your Calm? [Infographic]

For this week’s Monday Mindfulness, we’re going to focus on sound. This mini practice will take you out of your head when you have a lot on your mind or feel overwhelmed, and it’s a great way to build in time for practice throughout your day. Just like the breath, focusing on what you hear is simple to do and immediately accessible. Different sounds are always there — in the distance, close to us and even within our own body. If you’re able to focus on sound with presence and a sense of open curiosity, without judging or evaluating, then the simple act of listening can become a nice source of stress-relieving calm. Follow the simple road map in the infographic below.
