- Mindful Daily Routine Integration: Participants are guided through a mindfulness exercise where they choose a routine activity from their daily life, such as brushing teeth, making coffee, or washing dishes. They practice applying MBSR principles to this activity, focusing on being fully present, observing their thoughts and sensations, and reducing mind-wandering. This exercise helps them experience the immediate benefits of mindfulness in routine existence.
- Mindful Communication Practice: Participants engage in mindful communication exercises. They take turns being the speaker and the listener. The speaker shares their thoughts or experiences while the listener practices active and non-judgmental listening. Participants then switch roles. This exercise enhances interpersonal mindfulness and effective communication techniques.
- Mindfulness Goal Setting and Action Planning: Participants reflect on their current stressors and areas in which they wish to apply mindfulness. They set specific and achievable mindfulness goals, such as reducing stress in the workplace, managing anxiety, or improving overall well-being. They then develop a step-by-step action plan outlining how they will integrate mindfulness practices into their daily routines to achieve these goals.
