How to practice mindfulness meditation
Today, we fell into stressful situations so easily – electronic equipment failure or computer virus in the workplace when we have a deadline, a tense meeting, a conflict with a colleague, getting caught in a traffic jam when you’re in a hurry to pick someone up – but how quickly we forget, also, how easy it is to deal with this stress, the problem is that people don’t know how to meditate properly, but it is simple. Even a few minutes of deep breathing, calm and quiet the mind and body can work wonders.
You will have much to gain by complementing your personal progress in meditation by reading books on the subject and attend lectures and courses, since you will be presented true events that have been tried and tested by others.
You can learn from guided meditation, applying these techniques to your meditation, to see if it works for you.
Gain consciousness in daily life through mindfulness meditation practice
As a preliminary exercise, try to notice what are the activities in the areas of work, sport, hobbies and leisure, which can lead to meditation. What can be difficult and perhaps impossible? Experience the attention and awareness during the different activities of daily life and see how they can contribute to what you are doing, or to help you relax at the same time.
Look at others around you and notice how certain activities require certain mental states. Throughout the day, when addressing others, note the extent to which they are aware of themselves and their environment, note what is and what situations can change that.
Notice the little silences when people come together and how quickly people start talking to fill what they see as embarrassing silences. Breathe deeply three times, at any time of day, slowly and deeply, exhaling all your tension, anxiety and stress out of you. Learning how to meditate properly isn’t as difficult has you might think.
