What is mindfulness?
Mindfulness is the ability to be present in the moment. It is a deep and profound awareness of your environment as well as of yourself.
Increasing mindfulness in your life can open up many doors for you. It helps calm anxious feelings and reduces stress. Being mindful is a process that starts from within and grows to your external environment.
It takes time to master the art of being mindful, but there are ways to facilitate the practice. Nexon Botanics is here to tell you 4 ways to be more mindful for the new year.
Set Solid Goals
The best way to start anything right is to start it with intention. Make a map of where you want to see yourself by the end of the year. Whether you make a physical list on pen and paper or just say it out loud to yourself, the intention exists.
Once you have your goals formulated in your own mind, the execution becomes a lot more streamlined. You understand what needs to be done to achieve them before you begin.
The new year is an excellent time to do that because it’s a fresh start. Start it right with your goals in mind.
Create Mindful Habits
A mindful habit is one that you do with intention every day. Whether it’s once or twice a day, morning or evening, it must be fulfilled.
Some mindful habits could include lighting a candle, sitting on the floor for 10 minutes every morning before breakfast, watering your plants, making your bed, or even making yourself a cup of tea. All of these count as mindful habits as long as they are done with an awareness of the moment.
Create a Mindful Environment
A mindful environment is one where you can both relax and concentrate. This is a fine balance that can be achieved with the right tools.
Essential oils are perfect for creating an environment that promotes focus and calm. Nexon Botanics Zen Head Essential Oil Blend is perfect for your mindful environment.
It is a combination of four essential oils: clove, cinnamon, orange, and nutmeg oils. You can diffuse a few drops of this essential oil blend for up to 20 minutes in a diffuser to promote a calm and peaceful ambiance to help you focus your thoughts.

Tools for Facilitating Mindfulness
Mindfulness doesn’t just come from your mind but also from your environment. That is why you need to invest in specific tools to facilitate your quest for mindfulness.
One of the best tools one can have in their arsenal during meditative practices is an aromatherapy diffuser. Diffusing essential oils in a diffuser changes the atmosphere and mood of any room. For mindful practices, a relaxed atmosphere is key, as are the tools that create it.
Once you’ve started your mindfulness journey, it is essential to constantly review and revisit your goals to make sure that you’re on track. Don’t be too hard on yourself if you can’t achieve them right away. All you need to do is be present and live in the moment.
