How to turn ordinary activities into a “330 micro break”?

To keep pace with the tempo of our action-packed city, we would think that we cannot afford to devote time to foster our well-being. In fact, even a little bit of time will help – as long as we do something we like doing, albeit for just 3 minutes and 30 seconds a day. It will nurture a habit of practising a “330 micro break” and will foster “positive psychology spirit”. We may also practise mindfulness in the process to focus on the present moment.

Some examples of “330 micro break”:

  • Savouring Exercise

    What are our favourites? A scoop of ice-cream? A music? A cup of tea or coffee? Let’s taste and experience our favourite activities and pleasant moments thoroughly with curiosity and all our sensations. Positive emotions will be cultivated in the process.

  • 3-minute Mindfulness Breathing Space Exercise

    “Breathe in…Breathe out…” We breathe naturally and automatically. We can make use of breathing, our innate ability, to practise a “330 micro break”. Focusing on the breathing process helps us bring our attention back to the present and let us be with ourselves. We will be more conscious of our present situation and be more aware of the importance of taking care of ourselves.
