Mindfulness On The Go Cards – My Thoughts
These sturdy cards are a handy reminder to practice different aspects of simple mindfulness techniques, in a clear and concise way.
The cards are double-sided – one side describing the technique in a short paragraph, while the other side goes more into details, and gives you additional thoughts and inspirations on how to integrate these powerful mindfulness techniques into your life.
The cards are useable for everyone who wants to engage in mindfulness, not just someone with a background in knowing more about this meditative technique. What I love about these cards is that they make what seems to be a complicated subject matter accessible, and easy to understand, and helps to remind us to take time to pay attention to the present moment.
The cards themselves are sturdy and on very thick cardstock, which makes them durable and long-lasting. They are quite plain to look at, white and green in the front, and darker green with white reading in the back. The print is not very big on either side, so it might be harder to read for someone with sight issues. Their glossy smoothness, indicates that they might be forgiving of the occasional smudge, however, I personally choose to keep those cards out of potential accidental spill reach, so I have not quite put their hardiness to the test, but they do feel strong to the touch.
How I use the cards:
While the book that these cards originate from, suggest practicing each individual technique for an entire week, I have incorporated them into my daily morning routine, pulling a new card each morning, and practicing throughout the day. I have found that it is easier to forget to stay consistent with following through with what is suggested on the cards, when I only have to remember what I am supposed to do for that particular day. However, that is partly because as a person with chronic illnesses, it is simply a more accessible way for me to remember and therefore stay on top of my mindfulness practice, even on bad days.
I really do enjoy the cards, and I actually like the fact that there are no distractions or a colorful picture on them. Even though I have been practicing mindfulness for a while, and am teaching it, it is still nice to have an anchor, such as these cards, that is reliable and easily accessible.

4 out of 5 Stars
I am deducting a star from the cards because of the fact that they may be hard to read for some people with vision problems.
