Introducing Mindfulness – A Practical Guide

    Катя Трофимоваhar citeretfor 6 år siden
    What does it mean to be a human being? The mindful answer puts the emphasis on the word ‘being’. We are human beings, but we have forgotten how to be. We have become human doings, trapped in a mode of always doing, acting, achieving and keeping busy. When we stop, even for a moment, it can feel frightening and unnatural. Activity and busyness have become our default mode.

    Mindfulness creates space for ‘being’ rather than ‘doing’
    If you allow time for being, it will help your doing to be more productive
    Set aside time for formal meditation practice – even 5 or 10 minutes a day is a good start
    You can also train yourself to create little spaces, pausing often throughout the day. Use a sound, visual cue or activity as a reminder.

    meditation practice, if we look and listen clearly to this internal voice, we may find that we are always giving ourselves a hard time. If our mind wanders, we chastise ourselves.

    Mindfulness is not about having a mind that is empty and blank. Your mind will have lots of thoughts, and that is okay!

    Mindfulness practice can be:

    Formal – such as sitting meditation using the breath as a focus
    Informal – such as making a cup of tea with awareness

    Your breath – the physical sensations of breathing
    Your body – in stillness or in movement
    Your senses – such as hearing, seeing and tasting
    Your thoughts – which may include your emotions

    Aware – of your body, your mind and the environment
    Present – in this moment; right here, right now
    Focused – more able to make choices about where you place your attention

    Your breath – the physical sensations of breathing
    Your body – in stillness or in movement
    Your senses – such as hearing, seeing and tasting
    Your thoughts – which may include your emotions
    Your experience – whatever arises in your awareness in this moment, including any of the above

    Present – in this moment; right here, right now
    Focused – more able to make choices about where you place your attention
    Embodied – being in your body; bringing your mind and your body into synch
    Accepting – of yourself and other people.

    kind of meditation we use in mindfulness training is not about going off into altered states, trying to get to some better place. It’s not about sitting in the lotus position in flowing white robes on a turquoise beach, as the advertising posters would have it – pleasant though that might be! You’re not even trying to get calm and relaxed, or to become
