Simple Ways to Practice Presence

Updated: Oct 11, 2021


1. Yoga Class


Give your full attention to what you are doing. Listen to instruction and follow along, pay attention to the class and notice the tendency of the mind to wander. For example, the mind may wander to what you did earlier, it may begin to watch others in the class to see what they are doing, it may wander to later in the day. Notice this.


2. Brushing Teeth


Pay attention to the brushing. Notice as you put the toothpaste on the brush. Notice as you brush each tooth, inside of cheeks and tongue. Notice whether the mind wanders to the anticipated events of the day and return your awareness to only what you are doing.
