Have you ever thought about meditation? Did you know that you don’t have to be a hippie or a Zen master to meditate? Mindful meditation can be beneficial to anyone and everyone who practices it. You’re thinking, Okay? What IS “mindful” meditation? How does it differ from regular meditation? Why is it so beneficial? Well, mindful is a term that means conscious or aware of something.
Mindful meditation, therefore, means that when you are meditating, you are focusing on positive attributes of yourself, i.e. you are being “mindful” of yourself, whereas with regular meditation, you focus on being calm or on channeling energy into your psyche. For some, regular meditation seems rather strange and even taboo, but most mental health specialists have recognized that mindful meditation can benefit many different psychological problems including anxiety, obsessivecompulsive disorder, help lower stress levels and even relieve the symptoms of depression.,
The benefits of mindful meditation have become more obvious as it is being recommended more frequently. Even those that do not suffer from any psychological issues can benefit and it is easy to learn. The best part about this type of meditation is that you do not need any special blankets or mats, you don’t have to dress in yoga pants, and you don’t have to pay for any special classes, counseling or therapy. If you Google “Mindful meditation techniques”, a whole slew of suggestions will pop up with how you can begin your journey of mindful meditation.
Mindful meditation can improve sleep patterns and help you to relax by getting you to slow down and focus on thoughts without stressing about them. “You come to the profound understanding that thoughts and feelings (including negative ones) are transient. They come and they go, and ultimately, you have a choice about whether to act on them or not.”
Coming to this understanding helps you to decide if the stress is really worth your time. Generally speaking, most people will realize that there are better things to focus on. Recognizing that you have a choice in your thoughts is a very comforting concept. That is also why mindful meditation has been known to help bring your blood pressure down and increase attention and focus.
When you recognize that you can control your thoughts, and this is your choice, it gives you the option of letting go of stressful thoughts and ideas. It helps you to clear your mind of negative ideations and problems that you cannot control and gives you the choice to focus on positive things. When you focus on the positive things in your life, your brain reacts by releasing feel good hormones which, in turn, lower your blood pressure. So take a few minutes today, and every day, to relax and do some mindful meditation and enjoy the benefits that it can offer you.
