Suggestions on ways to remind myself to be mindful throughout my day
Hello. I have been practicing my meditation and basically just trying to be aware of what my mind is doing throughout my day. This has not been easy because I tend to forget to practice if I am at work and caught up in fixing a problem or if i get reprimanded for something. Or if I am at home and I get frustrated because the wife wants us to cook dinner and I just want to make a bowl of cereal and not have to do all the work associated with making dinner. (I get frustrated easily and then my mood just goes dark and it is hard to pull myself out)
So I bought a simple black wrist mala to hopefully help as a visual reminder to stay calm and be mindful of what i am doing/thinking. However I am afraid that it does not remind me as much as I would like. I guess it is just hard for me to catch my thoughts before they snowball into something negative. So I have also made my desktop wallpaper of a Buddha for work and I have posted different Buddhist quotes around my cube and places like next to my mirror for when i brush my teeth.
Can anyone suggest more reminders I could create to help me stay mindful and calm?
