Even busy people can find ways to fit mindfulness meditation into their schedule. Take a short, undisturbed walk and focus on various sensations of the body. While eating, practice mindfulness by paying close attention to the taste and texture of the food. Or take a mini-break to just sit and notice the sensations in your mind and body. Try mindful listening by closely listening to the sounds around you or some music. Another option is to not let your mind wander when brushing your teeth. Other techniques include candle meditation, where you focus on the flame, and body scan, where you focus on one of your senses for five minutes.
