Use Mindfulness Meditation to Live in the Moment and Think More Positively

Anyone who has an interest in meditation would also do well to investigate more about mindfulness meditation, which can help take your meditative practices to a whole new level. Mindfulness meditation can help reduce your existing anxiety levels, provide you with greater peace of mind, and help you to handle any new stressors that pop up in your life.

If you’re like many people, before you started practicing meditation, you probably experienced a large amount of mind chatter and distracting internal dialogues, while probably were feeding your soul with a lot of negativity. What many people don’t realize is that they can actually train, teach, or program their minds to think more positively. If you have a lot of negativity coursing through your brain, then you can make active changes to remedy that, and one such way is with mindfulness meditation.

Mindfulness meditation can help you to do things like live in the moment more and be more accepting of undesirable situations.

Having too much negativity in your mind and soul is going to cause you a great deal of stress and anxiety, so changing your thought patterns through meditation can be very beneficial for you. And as you move forward in this direction, you are likely to discover that you feel less moody and that you are better able to communicate what you are feeling, which is going to greatly improve your personal relationships.

Use mindfulness meditation to live in the moment

You can perform mindfulness meditation on a daily basis to clear your head and permit yourself to concentrate on what is real and tangible. The key to mindfulness meditation is being completely mindful or aware in the present moment. There is no past or future; there is only the here and now. Mindfulness meditation can help you to achieve your greatest potential, because in training your brain to live in the present, you will no longer worry about limitations that occurred in the past or possess lofty expectations for the future. In practicing mindfulness meditation, neither of those two things will be weighing on your heart.

In today’s hustle and bustle society, we often find ourselves multi-tasking and juggling tons of balls in the air, which makes it much more difficult to be completely present, because we are constantly in a go-go state of “What comes next?” In taking just 10-15 minutes each day to sit down and meditate, concentrating on your breathing – on the rise and fall of your chest as you inhale and exhale – you will be able to greatly improve your ability to live in the present moment.

As you meditate, keep your focus on your breath. If your thoughts start to wander, try visualizing a calming scene, perhaps something in nature, like a quiet forest or a babbling brook. Then, once the distraction passes, redirect your focus back onto your breathing. Mindfulness meditation is a wonderful meditation technique that can really help you to improve your quality of life.

    As a mom of 3 with a full-time job, I feel like I am always thinking about the future and what comes next. I hope mindfulness meditation can help me to live more in the present and appreciate the little things in life.

    I hear you, Kerry. I am also a mom, and it’s hard enough finding a few minutes each day to myself to sit down and meditate! Love it so much when I’m able to though!

    I can’t even tell you how much I have gotten out of mindfulness meditation – twice a day, every day, for 10-15 minutes. Then, all is right with the world :)
