Mindfulness Meditation

The best way to practice being mindful is through a regular program of meditation. Keep in mind that not all meditations are for the purpose of making you more mindful. Transcendental meditation and mantra meditation might increase mindfulness as a side effect, but these aim at an entirely different result. Furthermore, there are numerous methods of meditating aimed at improved mindfulness. Some techniques take some time to learn. For example, Kabat-Zinn’s Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) approach involves taking an eight-week course in which you go through guided meditations. If you are interested in a self-directed version of Kabat-Zinn’s course, please visit

The different approaches to mindfulness meditation typically focus on the following three attributes:

• Your body

• Your breath

• Your thoughts

Spending approximately 10 to 15 minutes a day can help you dramatically improve your capacity for being mindful in any particular situation.

Until next time ...
