Mindfulness Meditation is a simple yet effective way to quiet the mind and relax the body. While there are many different practices essentially, it begins with simply sitting quietly, breathing slowly and deeply and following the breath with your full awareness as it moves into the body on the inhale and as it leaves the body slowly on the exhale. If your mind wanders simply notice that it wandered and gently bring it back to the breath with no self criticism. Soon the body “downshifts” into a more physiologically relaxed state and our emotions and thoughts quiet down. The health benefits are legion and well documented. The benefits at work include: more focus, better communication, improved teamwork and creative problem solving. Ready to learn and begin to reap the many benefits?
