Practicing Mindfulness

Practicing MindfulnessPracticing mindfulness is a discipline of coming into awareness of the present moment. One of the most effective ways to begin practicing mindfulness is through meditation, a discipline of training the mind in the practice of present moment awareness (also called mindfulness.) Although you can sit in a quiet place to practice being mindful, you can also weave mindful moments into your daily life simply by paying attention. For example, at mealtime notice the smell of your food and the taste of it, chewing slowly. Finish one bite before eating the next. When you are in the workplace, see if you can give your client or co-worker your full attention. When you walk, focus on the soles of your feet as they touch the ground. Even when you wait in line, an activity that causes many people to become inpatient, you can shift your attention to your breath moving in and out of your body as your chest rises and falls.

The practice of meditation has measurable benefits — reduced stress, increased focus and awareness, and enhanced positive emotion, learning and memory. There is now scientific evidence that documents these positive effects. To learn more about these scientific studies and the associated benefits of meditation, hereʼs a link to a brief overview.
