Mindfulness Meditation practice is one type of the different types of meditation the world knows and practices.
It’s about bringing awareness to what you’re directly experiencing via your senses or your state of mind via your thoughts and emotions; it’s about paying attention to daily life and the things we typically rush through. It’s a mental training practice that teaches you to slow down racing thoughts, let go of negativity, and calm your mind and body.

When you Practice Mindfulness daily for not more than five to 10 minutes, go into a mental state that involves being entirely focused on “the now” so you can acknowledge and accept your thoughts, feelings, and sensations without judgment.

How to Practice MINDFULNESS Meditation:

Of course, a teacher or program (online or in life) can help you get started, but mindfulness meditation is about reaching the level of not judging and being limitless with your mind. Learning mindfulness meditation is straightforward enough to practice on your own.
And as we say that it’s a practice, we will fall into distraction and be focused all the way again along our meditation journey; there is no right or wrong, only try and error until we reach our peace.
And to help to get started, here are some tricks and examples of how you can practice your Mindfulness Meditation:

1- Focus on Breathing

Become aware of your breath, attuning to the sensation of air moving in and out of your body as you breathe. Please pay attention to the changes you feel when the breath is inhaled versus when exhaled.

2- Observe the present moment as it is:

The aim of Mindfulness is not to quiet the mind or achieve a state of eternal calm. So after observing our breath, The attitude and goal are simple: we’re aiming to pay attention to the present moment without judgment. 

3- Let your judgments roll by: 

When we notice judgments arise during our practice, note them, remain calm, and use your breathing focusing process as an anchor. Imagine your thoughts as fog passes by. You need to Repeat this as often as you need to while meditating.

4- Return to the present moment and Be kind to your wandering mind: 

Our minds often get carried away in thoughts, so If you find yourself getting carried away in your thoughts—whether with worry, fear, Anxiety, or hope—observe where your mind went and try to return to the present moment using Mindfulness and at the same time do not judge yourself for whatever thoughts crop up, practice to know when you did wander and gently try to go back.

5- Doodle or color:

Try to set a couple of minutes to doodle. You’ll let your mind take a break and express whatever it feels. Does drawing stress you out? Shamelessly invest in a coloring book, adult or otherwise. You’ll have the perk of accomplishing something without facing a blank page.

4-Mindful where you are:

If you are outdoors, pay attention to the sounds around you; try to feel the wind against your skin. The smells around you, and if you’re indoors, what about the color of the wall? What do you see in on the seal …? Put the phone away where you can’t reach it for a while, and do your best to stay in the moment by focusing on your senses and your environment for a while. Start with 15 mins. Of sensing all around you, and it will increase over time.

7- Feel the process

Making something with a unique and special odor is very important; in some cultures, in many countries, making a cup of tea or coffee is a very cherished practice. Settle into the practice step of making one (tea or coffee, whatever you like better), observe well and feel the smell of the choke or tea when it meets the hot water, and compare it with its smell before; what does the hot water look like when you first add the tea? Watch the steam rise from the cup and feel the heat of the cup against your hand. This will make you focus some time on the present moment only without any other thoughts.

8- Focus on one thing at a time

Yes, you can be mindful of yourself by planning a right to-do- list, Setting a timer for five minutes, and giving one task your full and undivided attention. No checking your phone, clicking on notifications, browsing online — no multitasking. Let that one task take center stage until the timer goes off.

9- Try to Neglect your phone a little bit! 

Do you feel you are on the upper hand on your phone?! Try to prove that by neglecting him for just 30 min a day!!? Only 30 min!!
Oh, and try hard not to carry it up with you in every step you make in your house; you don’t need it between rooms! Instead of worrying about it, sit and breathe before you start eating. Take a moment for yourself and your needs in the bathroom. Your phone will still be there when you’re done.

10- logging out from all social media accounts challenge:

Ohh, social media issue!!! Can you challenge yourself to log in to your account every time?
Social media increase Anxiety and interrupt your productivity. You’ll be amazed at how frequently you check your social media accounts without thinking, looking at someone you don’t know, and maybe he’s doing something you don’t like or approve of!!!
So log out. Log out; being forced to type in a password again will surely slow you down or stop you altogether.

When you want to check in, set a time limit or an intention to accomplish. That way, you won’t feel behind on your work or guilty for spending 20 minutes looking at a stranger’s puppy or doll.

FINALLY, why are we thinking of Mindfulness? Is it something new to try for a while, follow some friends, or..!!?
NO, think of that, we now live in a ruthless world where everyone must run and run for something to achieve( money – career – power – ……), and we all forget about that body and soul of ours, about their needs, about their peace with themselves and with everyone else, that’s why we practice Mindfulness.

We practice Mindfulness Meditation, for understanding our pain – which is a fact of life, but it doesn’t have to rule us-, for connecting better with other people with full attention and containing, for decreasing our stress which causes illnesses, and to always focus our mind in just one task instead of being pulled unsuccessfully in six or seven directions.
Getting started with a mindfulness meditation practice can sometimes seem intimidating, but it’s important to remember that even a few minutes each day can be beneficial.
