Mindfulness is a form of meditation that allows your mind to focus on the present. The goal is to achieve a mind that is calm, stable and through this practice, you can develop the mind’s strength and harmony. Mindfulness produces a mind that is intelligent even in deep meditation. Studies suggest that mindfulness mediation decreases stress, and improves mood and immune function.
Finding the right place for your mindfulness meditation
Choosing the right place to practice mindfulness is the first step in achieving a strong, harmonious mind. You should find a quiet space, even if it is small, that makes you feel uplifted. It should be free of noise and disturbances, and situations that are likely to trigger feelings of anger, jealousy or other negative emotions. These distractions will compromise your practice.
What is meditation, and what is mindfulness about it?
Mindfulness mediation should be done frequently for short periods of time, like twice a day for 10, 15 or 20 minutes. The process of training your mind should be simple and doing short meditations once in the morning and once at night will allow you to discipline your mind with focus. Meditation should not be a time to let your mind wander. Rather, it should be a time to train and work your mind. Reminding yourself of this before each time you meditate is helpful. Don’t be afraid to say it out loud for a boost of inspiration.
How to meditate using proper posture and mindful relaxation
Your posture affects your mind so good posture while practicing mindfulness meditation is vital to your success. When you sit down either cross-legged on the floor or upright in a chair with your feet touching the floor, spend some time getting your posture just right. You should feel like your spine is being pulled up from the top of your head and then settle in. Your shoulders and hips should be level, your spine strong and stacked. If you feel hazy or drowsy, make sure your posture is correct. You also should ho ld a sof t gaze in a downward direction, a couple of inches in front of your nose to minimize distractions.
Another meditation how to: Use breathing for your mindful meditations
When you start practicing mindfulness meditation, you will have a heightened sense of awareness of your body and of where you are. You will then notice the whole feeling of your breathing going in and out. Your breathing should be natural, not forced and with each breath, you will become relaxed.
The role of your thoughts in mindfulness meditation
When thoughts come up while you are practicing mindfulness meditation, observe them and return to focusing on your breathing. If you find that your mind begins to wander, simply take note of where it went, let it go and don’t judge yourself harshly.
Mindfulness meditation is a simple practice that teaches you to do a lot while you are doing nothing at all. When your meditation time comes to an end, sit for a couple of minutes to increase your awareness further, then slowly get up and go about your day.
