Practicing mindfulness can benefit everyone, but it’s especially helpful if you tend toward anxiety or depression. Often, when we are engaged in a mundane physical task like folding laundry, we find ourselves drifting in our thoughts toward negativity and worry.
Try this simple exercise: as you fold each piece of laundry, name something about yourself that you are proud of. (If you have a lot of laundry, you’ll find yourself really challenged!) You’ll likely find that this keeps you centered and focused on your inner dialogue in a helpful way.
If you do this, let us know how it worked for you!
