MBSR helps you calm your mind and cope with illness, pain, and stress. It teaches "mindfulness," which is a focus only on things happening in the present moment.
Here are some ways you can practice it.
How does the air feel? Warm or cold? Try to accept that feeling and not resist it. What else do you notice around you?
Focus only on your food. Eat slowly, and savor each bite. What flavors do you taste?
Focus on your breathing. Gaze out the window, and listen to the sounds outdoors.
Count your steps while you breathe in and out.
You can do this at work, at home, or anywhere. Note how your body feels. Let your mind settle before you return to what you were doing.
