6 Best Mindfulness Quotes
Nurse mummy presents 6 of the best mindfulness quotes. Please feel free to download and share these, even adding to your phone screen to help remind you of the messages.
1. Mindfulness and stillness
This quote is a personal favourite and how true is it? We are so busy all the time in our lives, trying to fit as much as we can into each day. It is very important to take time out to be mindful and be present in the moment, not only for our emotional and mental health but for our physical health. Burnout is becoming a huge problem, so take that break and have time just to yourself.
2. Mindfulness quote number 2 -The importance of life
As a nurse, if I had a dollar for every time a patient told me that after becoming unwell, they appreciate so much more the value of life. Unfortunately, sometimes it takes for someone to become unwell to realize that life is precious and to enjoy every single moment here on this earth. Being alive and having a body that works for us each day is truly a miracle, so enjoy the moments with loved ones, at the end of the day they are the ones that are important to us, not material things.
3. Busyness of life: A life lived too quick
We have such a high expectation of ourselves and it is not uncommon to feel guilty to take time for yourself. We live in a society that is surrounded by technology including social media, and we are constantly compared and comparing ourselves to others. Take some time to stop, take in the present moment and what you are grateful for, and focus on those simple things in life. Your child’s smile, your husband or wives laughter and being in good company. Those are the memories we take with us when we pass over, not what car we upgraded to or what type of iPhone we had in our back pocket.
4. Stop focusing on the past and future, focus on now
How often do you drive home from work thinking of all the things you have to do when you get home? How often do you toss and turn at night worried about something in the past, or in the future, both of which you can control or change? Live in the present moment and enjoy every aspect of it. Have gratitude for everything n your life and take it all in. The present moment is what is important, focus on that and appreciate every moment we have in life.
5. Positive manifestation and thought
I am a strong believer in what you put out is what you get back. If your negative and a worrier, your likely to attract that as your future self. Focus on the present and be the best version of you in this present moment. This quote sums it up, plant your flowers, don’t plant weeds!
Quote 6- Live in the present and calm the mind
Living in the present moment and tuning into all your senses can help quieten the mind. If your thoughts are full of the past or worries of the future, your not engaging in the present moment. Your intuition or “gut feeling” is your true self and always listen to it. Never once have I been wrong when I have that gut feeling about something or someone. Calming your mind and being in the present is when you get your best ideas. I know I always get the best ideas when I am in the shower!!
