Updated: Oct 13

We have reached our final article in our series that is dedicated to mindfulness. If you haven’t read our previous articles yet you can follow the links to each of the categories, that we believe play a vital role in being balanced mentally, physically and spiritually, below.

Kallima’s 6 mindfulness categories:

1. Being mindful of your health (Available to read here)

2. Spiritual mindfulness (Available to read here)

3. Being mindful at work of in your career (Available to read here)

4. Social mindfulness (Available to read here)

5. Recreational mindfulness 

6. Being mindful in your surroundings – your home 

Let’s unpack our final two categories: 


5. Recreational mindfulness

Hobbies are activities that you involve yourself in during your leisure time, for pleasure and enjoyment.  Hobbies serve as effective mindfulness exercises because they encourage us to focus on the task in hand.


These types of hobbies could include pottery, coloring, knitting, gardening, painting – the list goes on!


Psychologist and mindfulness expert Dr. Saima Latif has said “The concentration necessary to produce a work of art helps center your mind, allowing stressful thoughts to drift away. It doesn't matter if you're not particularly artistic. The simple process of connecting mind and body is enough to produce a sense of wellbeing”


Go on, learn a new skill, grab those knitting needles - a happier, more stress-free you is waiting!

6.  Being mindful in your surroundings – your home – Organised

We believe that running an organized household is part of being mindful at home. Be neat and clean, take pride in what is yours. How can your brain make clear and good decisions when your surroundings are in a mess, dirty, cluttered? Our best tip here – clean as you go! Just finished dinner, do the dishes (or pack them in the washer) as soon as you get up from the dinner table. Are the clothes in the dryer done? Get them folded and packed away, now. Remember, a place for everything and everything in its place.


Ever heard the saying “the state of your bed is the state of your head”? Well, now you have. Simple things such as making your bed first thing in the morning create a calm retreat to welcome you home at night.


There really is nothing more to it!
