21 Top Modern Mindfulness Blogs To Reconnect With Your Self

21 Top Modern Mindfulness Blog To Reconnect With Your Self

Most people rarely find mindfulness an interesting subject when life is all good and rosy to them. But once you’ve got your life turned upside down, you start seeking for answers. Even if you found the root cause of your fall and the road to rebuilding, you’ll find that a moment of mindfulness in your life will help you stay on your course.

When it comes to mindfulness, there’s really no words that could relate the experience unless you’re practicing it in your own life. You can read as many books on mindfulness as you wished, meditate or join mindfulness community but if you don’t attempt to bring mindfulness into your daily life, it’s not going to change anything.

That said, I’m compiling here a list of top mindfulness blogs where you can find stories and guides of people practicing mindfulness in their life. I’m listing them in no particular order. Huge publication media and personal blogs deserved the same attention because when you’re being mindful, you realize that the essence is what’s important.

There are some interesting blogs you recommend. I’m looking for something different for myself. Something that can help with self-motivation. Some days I wake up and have a ton and other days I have 0. Do you recommend any of these blogs to help with motivation?

    Hi Kurtis,

    When it comes to motivation, Personal Excellence is one blog I highly recommend.

    Cheers,

Kevin Bulmer - March 10, 2017 Reply

What a great resource, Kenny! I’ll be looking at some of those blogs for certain, just as I value yours, very much.
Mindfulness is a word and practice that, I hope, becomes MUCH more common and much earlier in life. In ways, it’s staggering to think that we’ve come as far as we have as a species without really prioritizing our self awareness.
Keep up the great work!
Kevin

    Hi Kevin,

    Perhaps mindfulness sounds so mundane that people neglect taking up the practice early on in life. But it’s one of the greatest skill to have when we’re in tough times.

    Thanks for reading.

    Cheers,
    Kenny

Thank you for this comprehensive list of mindfulness blogs.

I have read a few of Leo Barbuta’s articles at zen habits but have not heard of most of these.

I’m going to check out your recommended post from Everyday Mindfulness about calming toddler tantrums. My son just turned 4 and he likes to get his way!

    Hi Jeremy,

    I’m also still learning and bringing mindfulness to parenting. It’s a challenging duty.

Hi Kenny,
Thanks for providing this list. You are absolutely bang on when you say when life is rosy people don’t care about mindfulness.
The thing is, we should all be taking a little time each day to work on ourself, that includes meditation and mindfulness.
Keep up the great work. Really enjoyed this.
Thanks, Peter

We really take mindfulness for granted today. As a student-homeopath that works with a variety of clients, I can definitely attest that people tend to put that at the end of their list of things that are important.

These blogs you mentioned seem very useful and practical, and can help people see the importance of mindfulness and having healthy mentals and emotionals, which are really the cores of general health and wellness.

Great post!

    Hi Ariel,

    Mindfulness is something we often neglected, but ironically a skill we needed the most at time of adversity to navigate out of choppy waters.

    Cheers,

Hi Kenny,

Great post! There are some great blogs here. I am definitely one that could benefit from these. I will have to share this with others as I think everyone could benefit from slowing down and being content with what you have despite the obstacles that present themselves.

Hi Kenny,

Great assortment of blogs you recommend here. I like the quote on Breath you added from Zen Habits and will definitely check that blog out. As a yoga and spiritual practitioner, I find mindfulness a key aspect of living a happy and balanced life. It’s definitely a discipline like with all other aspects of my practice, but once you do take it on, it becomes a little easier each time.

    Kenny Lee - March 11, 2017 Reply

    Hi Lidia,

    Like any worthwhile skills, mindfulness is something that you put into constant practice. I agree with you on that.

    Cheers,

Wow! What a great list of blogs to explore! This list would keep me busy for weeks! I have often thought that I want to start my own mindfulness blog, but when I see all the other blogs in the space I get stuck on that question of ‘how can I be different to all these blogs?’ However perhaps that is just perfectionism getting in the way. Thanks for all the great references. I will check them out!
