Posture tip: Lengthen spine
When sitting at your desk or standing, try to lengthen your spine by lifting the crown of the head towards the ceiling (like we do in mountain pose, tadasana). This will improve your posture immediately.
Mindfulness tip: Focus on 1 thing at a time
Put all your concentration into the task you are doing in that exact moment. If you are washing the dishes, focus all your attention on it, even for 30 seconds. It will calm the mind (admittedly, it does feel a bit strange staring at the dishes).
