With news notifications popping up on your phone’s screen every two seconds, it can be challenging to feel in the present. We’re all guilty of picturing ourselves anywhere but at our desk every so often. Hey, even when we’re having a conversation, our mind is so busy it tends to drift away from what’s happening at the moment and starts going through its laundry list of to-do items.
The point is, we struggle to be fully present and aware of where we are and what we’re doing. That’s where mindful meditation comes in. The whole purpose of mindfulness is to wake up the inner workings of our mental, emotional, and physical processes, so we can (once again) be fully present.
Mindful meditation isn’t something reserved for meditation gurus. It’s as simple as finding a nice, quiet place, taking a good seat, paying attention to your breathing, and making a conscious effort to bring your mind back anytime it wanders.
Meditation doesn’t mean you have to empty your mind. It’s all about finding that perfect place where each moment is momentous. Suddenly, you venture into the sensations, the emotions, and the thoughts you’re experiencing in that very moment.
Mindful meditation is all about spending some judgment-free time and letting your mind be free for a bit. Sometimes, especially if you’re getting into the habit of meditating, listening to music during your session can help you be more mindful.
