Mindfulness 101

by Sarah Cardman |  | 13 comments

In today’s busy world, what does it mean to be mindful?

Images of beaches and tropical winds might come to mind, or people in complex yoga poses.

Mindful Supply wants to help people think a little differently about how mindfulness might work on an everyday level—particularly for those of us who can’t make it to the beach or the yoga studio every day.

We see mindfulness as a lifestyle, as illustrated by this 30 second video:

Mindfulness isn’t inherently complicated, or even expensive; it’s about making the most out of each small choice that we have. For us at Mindful Supply, we apply this idea by being conscious of how we create our apparel--it’s our way of contributing to a better world. Every Mindful Supply shirt is ethically made (no sweatshop labor here!) and most of our shirts are made in the Carolinas. If you would like to learn more about our ethically made clothes, as well as how to read our labels, check out this post here by our Brand Manager, Sarah Cardman.

Shirts are just one way to practice mindfulness. We want to know what mindfulness means to you: how do you practice it? Or, how do you want to practice it? Leave a comment below to be entered into our first ever blog giveaway—a Mindful Swag Pack (Including a free T-shirt)!

    I think mindfulness has to be practiced everyday where it becomes habit. I try to be in the habit everyday to slow down some, pay attention to what is going on around me. I even went so far as to have “be.” tattooed on my wrist to help remind me…be mindful, be present.

    Mindful is being aware of what you do or don’t do, what you say or don’t say. I’m trying to be mindful and go by God’s word-. Love one another..

    Mindfulness is an awareness of all that is beautiful and joyful in the world— and also the act of sharing it with others

    Mindfulness to me means being aware of the mark you are leaving on the world and on the people around you, being present and thoughtful to aspects outside of yourself.
