When lying down and applying mindfulness to help you relax: don't try too hard.
Whether you are a beginner or a veteran to mindfulness meditation, I hope the following blog will give you some practical tips on how to sit and start to calm your mind.
Getting to know yourself in life though is invaluable. I would put this as one of the most useful things I've done so far...
This is a question worth asking yourself, because, it may affect your approach to meditation. Knowing could be the difference between getting a practice established or getting stuck and giving up altogether.
In this blog we are going to explore different ways to walk mindfully that will hopefully give you a little “walking mindfully toolkit” for your everyday life.
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.
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.
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.
