Have you ever tried to be mindful of your body but found that your mind is wandering all over the place? I know I have! And from my experience, acceptance combined with, regularly coming back to a grounding object of awareness (i.e. the body or the breath) is the best way to navigate the wandering mind.
Whatever it is, most of us spend some time standing each week. So wouldn’t it be nice if that “standing time” could be turned into a mindfulness exercise to help you be more in the present moment?
Simply have a go and if at first you don’t succeed just try again and again maybe until you get fed up with trying to succeed. You might find that letting go of the “wish to succeed and be a certain way” is what allows the mind to settle.
It is a very useful part of mindfulness because more often than not your body will be in one of them. So learning about these four postures means you can be mindful in most situations.
Thoughts can be very judgemental, of ourselves and others.
So wouldn't it be nice to have a little "mind break" say, each day?
From these short introductions, I hope that you will learn some essential skills of mindfulness meditation that you can use in your daily life to benefit your wellbeing.
