Mindfulness might be a hot topic right now, but that doesn't mean its not a legitimately beneficial practice. The mindset largely stems from the Buddhist goal of maintaining awareness in the present, rather than focusing always on the past or future. In our busy modern world, the rise in society's desire to disconnect from stress and find stillness isn't terribly surprising. But what can you do to start living more mindfully?


1. Use a Mindfulness App

As is the case for almost everything these days, there's an app for mindfulness. With the rise in people seeking out guidance on the practice, guided meditation apps such as Headspace, Whil, and Calm are rising in popularity. Having a meditation app at your fingertips -- complete with pop-up reminders and guided meditations -- can help you practice mindful living and remove the excuses of expensive soundtracks and forgetfulness.
