Mindfulness Meditation


Introduction

Mindfulness meditation is a practice that has been around for thousands of years. It’s about being present with the world around you, and not reacting to it in an overly emotional way. Mindfulness can help reduce stress, anxiety, depression and pain. There are many different types of mindfulness meditation techniques, including breathing techniques (some practices focus on your breath while others focus on parts of the body or environment), guided imagery (visualizing something positive happening), body scan/progressive muscle relaxation (scanning through each part of your body one at a time).

Mindfulness Meditation

Mindfulness meditation is a form of meditation that focuses on the present moment. It’s an exercise in being more aware of your thoughts, feelings and physical sensations. In this practice, you sit or lie down with your eyes closed and focus on your breathing as well as the sounds around you.

You may find that mindfulness meditation helps you to:

  • Slow down and be more present in life

  • Focus better on what’s happening right now

    Mindfulness meditation is a practice where you focus your attention on the present moment without judgment or analysis. The goal is to become aware of thoughts without judging them as good or bad; instead just observing them without reacting to them. This can be practised sitting down or standing up but it doesn’t have to be done in silence – there’s no pressure to keep quiet if you don’t want! You’ll find that after some time practising this type of meditation, it will feel natural for you not only because it helps reduce stress but also improves self-awareness which means we’re able better cope with difficult situations when they arise later down the line due lack of adequate preparation beforehand.”

Mindfulness is the human ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we’re doing, and not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around us. Without non-reaction, it is not possible to practice mindfulness.
The practice of mindfulness means breathing in a particular way, focused on being conscious of what you’re sensing and feeling at each moment, without interpretation or judgment. Also, at a deeper level, it means being mindful of what is happening in your own mind.

One study showed that mindfulness-based interventions (MBIs) were effective in reducing social anxiety disorder symptoms in adults. Another study showed that MBIs could be used as an alternative to drug therapy or other behavioural therapies for patients with generalized social phobia. A third study found that a ten-week MBI program led to significant improvements in mood among women with breast cancer who had depression or anxiety about their condition

Mindfulness meditation techniques focus on breathing techniques (some practices focus on your breath while others focus on parts of the body or environment), guided imagery, body scan/progressive muscle relaxation, loving-kindness meditation and mantra recitation used during walking meditation.

The first step in mindfulness practice is to become aware of what’s happening in your mind and body at any given time. You can do this by paying attention whenever you notice something happen. A good way to begin this process is by observing your breathing patterns: When does it feel like when the air is coming in? Where does it end up? If there are sensations that rise up from deep within your belly when inhaling or falling away as you exhale…

Modern research on meditation began in 1979 at Harvard University Medical School with an experiment on transcendental meditation and its effect on stress reduction. Since then, thousands of studies show that mindfulness helps with depression and anxiety. Studies also show that mindfulness helps with physical conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome, fibromyalgia, psoriasis and rheumatoid arthritis

Conclusion

We are living in a culture that is constantly bombarded with information, and it can be difficult to stay focused on what’s important. With so much going on around us all the time, it’s easy to become stressed out and overwhelmed by life’s demands. But mindfulness meditation offers an accessible way for people to become more aware of their minds and bodies — which can help them manage stress, improve health and make better decisions about their lives.
