Om with Olive + M: Achieving Mindfulness with a Busy Routine

On any given day, our schedule requires balance between work, school, exercise, social time and (when we can fit it in) self-care. We’re able to juggle an impressive amount of tasks, but how often are we truly focused on what we’re doing instead of just rushing to the next item on our to-do list? Mindfulness is a valuable exercise in being more present, and finding ways to create a mindfulness practice in your already too-busy routine is easier than you might think.

According to Mindful Magazine, “Mindfulness is the basic human ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we’re doing, and not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around us.” In this series, Om with Olive + M, we explore ways to be more purposeful during small moments of your day—from your morning skincare routine to quality time with friends.
