Jon Kabat-Zinn’s “Full Catastrophe Living”; a second way of practicing mindfulness

“The second way of practicing using the breath is to be mindful of it from time to time during the day, or even all day long, wherever you are and whatever you are doing. In this way the thread of meditative awareness, including the physical relaxation, the emotional calm, and the insight that come with, is woven into every aspect of your daily life. We call this informal meditation practice, but is easily neglected and loses much of its ability to stabilize the mind if it is not combined with regular meditation practice.”
