What basically is mindfulness?

The ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we're doing, and not over reactive or overwhelmed by what's going on around us is known as mindfulness.

It's not really in your head. You can cultivate mindfulness by sitting down for a structured meditation practice or by being more intentional and aware of your daily activities.

How to Be Mindful in daily life?

Almost every job we do throughout the day, whether it's brushing our teeth, eating lunch, conversing with friends, or exercising, may be done more consciously.

We pay more attention to what we are doing when we are conscious of our actions. It's the exact opposite of going with the flow. You are tuned into your senses and aware of your thoughts and feelings. You can practice mindfulness even if you don't have time to meditate by incorporating mindfulness into your daily life.

Developing Your Meditation Skills.

It's a good idea to set a time limit for you when it comes to practicing meditation. Otherwise, you can become preoccupied with deciding when to stop. If you're just getting started, setting aside a modest amount of time, such as five or ten minutes, can be beneficial. You can gradually increase the time to twice as long, then 45 minutes or an hour. Use a kitchen timer or your phone's timer. Many people do a morning and evening session, or just one of the two. If you're short on time and feel pressed for time, doing something is preferable to doing nothing. You can do a little more when you have a little more space and time.

Find a suitable area in your house where there is not a lot of clutter and you can have some peace and quiet. Sit in natural light or leave the lights on. You can also sit outside if you like, just make sure it's somewhere quiet.

This posture exercise can be utilized as the first step in a meditation practice or simply as something to do for a minute to center oneself and find a moment of relaxation before returning to the fight. You can adapt this exercise to fit your needs if you have injuries or other physical challenges.

What is the Best Way to Sit for Mindfulness Meditation?

First take a seat. Find a seat that gives you a sturdy, solid support not perching or hanging back, whether it's a chair, a meditation cushion, or a park bench.

Keep an eye on what your legs are doing. Cross your legs in front of you if you're sitting on a cushion on the floor. If you are already in a seated yoga position, go ahead. If you are sitting on a chair, the bottoms of your feet should be touching the floor.

Straighten your upper body, but don't stiffen it. Natural curvature exists in the spine. Allow it to exist. Your head and shoulders should be able to rest comfortably on top of your vertebrae.

Your upper arms should be parallel to your upper body. Then, gently place your hands on the tops of your legs. Your hands will land in the correct location if you keep your upper arms at your sides. You'll hunch if you look too far ahead. You will become stiff if you sit too far back. You are basically fine-tuning your body's strings, making sure they are not too tight or too loose.

Allow your chin to drop slightly and your eyes to dip gently downward. Allow your eyes to droop. You may close your eyes if you feel the need, although it is not required to do so when meditating. You can simply observe what is in front of your eyes without focusing on it.

For a few moments, be there. Relax. Pay attention to your breath or the sensations in your body.

Feel your breath as it leaves and enters your body. Just focus on the physical feeling of breathing; air going through your nose or mouth, your abdomen rising and falling, or your chest rising and falling. Choose a focal point and mentally note "breathing in" and "breathing out" with each breath.

Your attention will inevitably leave the breath and stray to other things. Don't be concerned. There's no reason to stifle or suppress your thoughts. When you see your mind wandering after a few seconds, a minute, or five minutes return your focus to the breath gently.

Before making any physical alterations, such as moving your body or scratching an itch, practice pausing. Shift with intention at a time that is convenient for you, giving space between what you are experiencing and what you decide to do.

It's very normal for your thoughts to roam continually. Rather than grappling with or dealing with those thoughts, practice observing without reacting. Simply take a seat and pay attention. That's all there is to it, no matter how difficult it is to maintain. Return without judgment or anticipation time and over.

Lift your gaze gently when you are ready. If your eyes are closed, open them. Take a moment to listen to the sounds around you. Take note of how your body is currently feeling. Take note of your feelings and thoughts. Take a minute to consider how you want to proceed with your day.

That is all there is to it. That's how it's done. It's often remarked that it's really basic, but that doesn't mean it's easy. It's only a matter of continuing to do it. Practice, practice and practice until you see results.
