Mindfulness meditation – what is it?
Mindful meditation, or mindfulness meditation, is a type of meditation that involves focusing on the present without judgement of yourself.
It differs from other types of meditation, that involve focused concentration on a single object, in that it encourages awareness of everything that gets our attention.
Mindful meditation requires us to be fully aware of whatever is happening in the present moment as if in the role of an impartial observer.
As in other types of meditation, however, mindfulness meditation makes use of awareness of breathing.
Mindfulness practice, which comes from Buddhist traditions, is reported to alleviate mental, emotional and physical tension and stress; anxiety; relapse in depression; drug addiction; and to boost immune system functioning and improve mood and general well-being.
In addition, mindful meditation, and other easy meditation techniques, will help you to control positively your conscious mind and ensure that you are in charge, not it.
Mindfulness gives rise to insights which ripen into wisdom, because the more deeply and clearly we are able to observe the reality of our mindbody and world, the more we will understand how and why things are as they are.
Here are 10 reasons to practice mindfulness meditation. When compared to the many problems caused by mindlessly living our lives, mindfulness helps us to:
1. Improve focus, concentration, and precision.
2. Enhance the quality of communications and relationships.
3. Heighten the clarity of our thinking and intentions.
4. Improve efficiency and safety.
5. Deepen peace of mind and sense of flow.
6. Master stress.
7. Deepen insight and intuitive wisdom.
8. Awaken more authenticity, heart, soul, and caring in our lives and work.
9. Increase resilience to change.
10. Strengthen faith and self-confidence.
