Many of us think of the practice of mindfulness meditation is difficult, but we’ll show you how easy it is to start. Focus on your breathing, the body and the present moment in a quiet and comfortable during meditation. Start your mindfulness meditation to feel better, reduce stress and enjoy a little more.
Mindfulness meditation is very different from other meditations. There are meditations that use singing, images, progressive relaxation, affirmations and many other approaches that are designed to alter what is present. Mindfulness meditation is the only approach that is designed to allow our experience of the present moment to be unchanged. For some of us that is good news and for others it is not. If your present experience is not working for you, then a little practice and patience can turn it around for you. The irony is that with attention, paying attention to both pleasant and unpleasant experiences can transform gradually unpleasant. So let’s start.
begins with meditation
1. Find a quiet place
The first step in the practice of mindfulness meditation is to find a quiet place where you can sit in one position comfortable for a period of time ranging from 10 to 30 minutes. Pay close attention to your posture so that you can comfortably maintain that position during the designated time. Pick a time of day that is not tired as mindfulness meditation is designed to enhance alertness attention not go to sleep. It is better not to have recently eaten, or be too hungry. In this way the digestive system can more easily co operate with meditation.
2. Focus on the body
With mindfulness meditation we use the body as a focal point for the present moment. The way to do this is to pay attention shift to different parts of the body. These parts include breathing, actual physical sensations of the body and the five senses. thoughts and emotions are also included because they are part of the body although it is often spoken of as if they are not. As we develop our ability to connect with the body in the present moment we will notice many things. Some of these things will be pleasant, some are unpleasant and some will be neutral. It is important to greet all these experiences with open arms.
3. Observe your breath
Now we’re ready to start going to start with breathing. The eyes may be open or closed in mindfulness meditation, but most people find it easier to close them as this reduces distractions. Breathing in and out of your nose notice thing to note about breathing. It also has when his attention away from breathing. Note where wanders – perhaps a thought, an emotion or other physical sensation and include wandering as part of meditation. Once you have taken note of the scattered attention bring it back to the breath. Do this as many times as necessary. The wanderer is an important part of building muscle care, like the grid for a sprinter or doing repetitions with weights if you are the body building. In addition to fully experience the nose breathing can also observe the movement of the belly with each inhalation and exhalation.
This simple conscious breathing is a profound way to transform your life. Breathing is always present and I think that is the “hub of the wheel” of the practice of mindfulness meditation.
