Mindfulness Meditation Practice

 Try this five-minute mindfulness meditation practice.

  • Sit on the floor or a chair.  Make sure your back is straight and arms relaxed.  Alternatively, lie on the floor.
  • Bring your attention to your breath for one minute.  Feel your belly rise and fall.
  • Widen your attention to include all your bodily sensations and any thoughts or feelings.
  • Try to be a neutral observer of your thoughts.  If you find yourself swept up in a train of thought, return to focusing on your breath.
