If I’ve learned anything over the past two years of medical school, it’s that life and school are stressful. Life comes at you fast, and you never know what is coming! Fortunately, there are ways to prepare for stressful situations. When I started medical school, “mindfulness” seemed like a social media fad, so I ignored it and dove head first into school. At the beginning of the second year of medical school, I had built up so much anxiety that I knew something had to change. I was burned out, so I decided to talk to the school counselor. She introduced me to mindfulness, and it has made such a difference in my happiness and approach to life and school over the past year. Today I’m sharing 3 ways to practice mindfulness, and I hope you find these practices helpful!

Disclaimer: I am by no means an expert in mindfulness, and this post should not be taken as medical advice.

  1. Start your day with you time. Every morning I make a cup of coffee and read a devotion from the First 5 app. Spending a quiet moment with God in the morning centers me and prepares me for the day ahead. You could also try meditating or reading, as long as what you’re reading doesn’t stress you out!
  2. Breathing exercises: When I’m stressed out and my heart is racing, I try to do a breathing exercise or guided meditation. It helps calm me down so I can think more clearly. My favorite app for guided meditations is Smiling Mind because the guide has an Australian accent.
  3. Do something that you love to do. I love to go for walks in the park in the springtime (before the Louisiana heat makes it miserable). It’s so nice to just enjoy nature and forget about everything that is stressing me out. Whatever it is that you love to do, make sure that you’re making time for it often.

What are your favorite mindfulness practices/resources? I would love to hear from you!
