Mindfulness Meditation is a mental coaching technique that helps you calm your mind and body by letting go of negativity and normalising your current thoughts pattern. It is a blend of meditation and mindfulness that can be defined as a mental state in which you are highly focused on “the present” and can accept your emotions, thoughts, and feelings without judgment.
Tips for mindfulness meditation:
In general, mindfulness meditation entails deep breathing and body and mental awareness. Always remember that meditation is a practice, but you can also take help from a trainee, so here are some simple tips to help you get started on your own.
Find a comfortable place:
Locate a quiet and pleasant location. Sit on a chair or floor with uplifted head, neck, and back. Also try to dress comfortably to avoid distraction.
Keep track of time:
Many people lose track of time while meditating, so a timer can help you focus on meditation without any worries.
Concentrate on Breathing:
Pay attention to your breathing. Take a few deliberate breaths, focusing on the inhale and exhale. Also, pay attention to the temperature difference between inhaled and expelled breaths.
Deal with Distractions:
It is very common for people to say, “I wasn’t able to focus on meditation as thoughts kept coming into my mind.” The goal of mindfulness meditation is to teach you how to deal with these distractions. Whatever occurs during your meditation, simply observe it and let it go.
Allow yourself some time to relax:
If you find yourself lost in your thoughts, whether they are filled with worry, anxiety, or hope, just observe where your mind has gone without passing judgment and return to your breathing, as mindfulness is the habit of returning to your breath and refocusing on the present moment.
