It’s all well and good saying the benefits of mindful meditation but how can you do it? Here is a task that can help you start your mindfulness journey:
- Find a position that you find comfortable and focus on the sensation of your breath as you inhale and exhale, all while allowing your thoughts to flow naturally and without judgement.
- Once you’ve found your concentration, widen your focus to include the sensation of your emotions, sounds and ideas.
- Embrace everything that comes your way. Come to accept the person you are and are becoming. The workplace is behind you, the moment is entirely about you and your breathing. Return to the focus of your breathing and then repeat the process until you feel grounded from your stress.
