Well, one of those options is to practice mindfulness. Usually combined with meditation, mindful action is to become fully aware of yourself, in the moment, and acknowledging your feelings. thoughts, and your physical form in a calm manner. Mindfulness can be done anywhere, and it’s one of the first steps one can take towards a more positive lifestyle.
