Mindfulness challenge #1: Daily Meditation

26 Sep

"The fruit of silence is tranquility"

I have decided to start my own set of challenges in order to create more mindfulness in my everyday life. I will start small. This week’s challenge is to meditate everyday for at least ten minutes. Doesn’t matter when, as long as I just become silent and focus on my breathing.

The last couple of weeks has been very chaotic, and this will be a good way to balance my energy and emotions. The idea is to set a new goal each week, adding to the previous week’s challenge.

You can even join in and let me know how it goes for you.

Mindful meditation

– Concentrate on your breathing

– Breathing must be natural and gentle

– Become aware of your body movements and sensations as you breath

– Become aware of any sounds, smells, sensations around you without thinking about it, just experience it

– When your mind starts to wander, simply bring it back to your breathing

– Simply observe what unfolds in this present moment

– Let all thoughts, sounds, ideas, feelings etc. run their natural course.

– Be aware, experience and let go


Live by each others happiness, not by each others misery
