So you want to start practicing mindfulness, but you’ve got no idea how to begin?
The wonderful thing about mindfulness is that you can get started anywhere, any time.
Here’s how I recommend you get started:
1. Set aside a certain time every day
2. Sit in a place where you can actually be as free from distractions as possible.
3. Set a timer, even starting with one minute will make a difference!
4. Simply sitting there for one minute, noticing your thoughts and then bringing it back to whatever you’re anchoring your attention on, such as your breath.
Quite often you’ll find if you go to sit down for one minute, you’ll end up being there for 5 or 10 minutes.
Mindfulness is not only beneficial for you, but for anyone that you come in contact with. So remember, please do not feel guilty that you’re taking time out for yourself!
As you become more accepting, less judgmental, and kinder to yourself, you naturally extend that same courtesy to others.
So get started, give it a go. I wish you all the best.
