What is mindfulness meditation?

Mindfulness meditation is a meditation technique that involves concentrating on the present moment by paying attention to our bodily sensations, thoughts and emotions, without judgement or reaction.

The aim of mindfulness meditation is to develop self-awareness, the ability to focus on the present moment and to free ourselves from negative thoughts and emotions that can upset our emotional balance. It is often used as a technique for managing stress and anxiety, as well as a personal development practice.

Mindfulness meditation can be practised in a variety of ways, such as conscious breathing, meditative walking, sitting or lying down, etc. It can be practised alone or in a group. It can be practised alone or in a group and requires no special equipment.

Numerous scientific studies have shown that mindfulness meditation has positive effects on physical and mental health, particularly in terms of reducing stress, anxiety, depression, chronic pain, insomnia and so on. It can also improve concentration, creativity and interpersonal relationships.

However, as with any practice, mindfulness meditation requires regularity and perseverance in order to reap the long-term benefits.

How is mindfulness meditation practised?

Here’s a simple method for practising mindfulness meditation:
Find a quiet, comfortable place where you can sit undisturbed.
Adopt a comfortable posture, keeping your back straight and relaxed.
Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths to relax.
Pay attention to your breathing, feeling the movement of air through your body from your nose to your belly.
If thoughts, emotions or bodily sensations arise, observe them without judgement or reaction. Simply let them pass and return your attention to your breathing.
Stay focused on your breathing for a few minutes, concentrating on each inhalation and exhalation.
When you’re ready, slowly open your eyes and take a few moments to get moving again.
Practise this meditation every day for a few minutes, gradually increasing the time over the course of days or weeks. You can also explore other meditation techniques, such as walking meditation or eating meditation.
