Do you meditate?

Hiya,

I hear a lot about meditation, how useful it is to gaining clarity of mind, calmness, peace. But meditation comes in many forms – doesn’t it?

For me, sitting still trying to clear my mind just doesn’t work. I have to walk in the woods, sit on a hilltop, or just take 5 minutes with a cuppa and a comfy chair – with no distractions. This to me is meditation. I gain clarity of mind, feel calm and peaceful and very often have my best ideas!

I’d love for you to join in the discussion and let me know what your preferred form of meditating is, or whether you don’t bother.

  1. I go for daily walks and let my mind go. It helps me meditate and I always – yes, always – return recharged.

  2. We have dogs so have to go walking every day. I can’t say I come back recharged every day – but certainly on a lot of them. Thanks Eric. πŸ™‚

  3. I’ve got so much noise in my head that I could use some guided meditation exercises!

  4. In essence, mindfulness is a state of being where you experience life more fully, change your relationship with your problems, cultivate personal strengths, and better manage self-limiting thoughts and behaviors. Although the terms are often used interchangeably, here is a simple way to differentiate them: mindfulness is the goal, while mindfulness meditation is a process for accomplishing that goal. Contrary to popular belief, mindfulness meditation doesn’t involve incense, chanting, adopting a religion, or clearing your mind of all thoughts. The practice involves focusing on the breath or bodily sensations and nonjudgmentally acknowledging distracting thoughts and feelings as they occur. You then gently return to the object of focus, whether it’s your breath during formal meditation practice or an everyday activity like drinking a cup of coffee.

    • Yes Erick, from time to time I practice this mindfulness but to be honest I haven’t got past the frustration of all those thoughts!! Yet. As with most things worthwhile – more practice needed. Thanks. πŸ™‚

  5. I wrote this little post recently on how I meditate, I hope you enjoy it. πŸ™‚
    Blessings to you!
