Mindfulness Made Easy: The 3 Questions
Here’s mindfulness made easy: go out into nature, find a quiet spot and sit.
Take three cleansing breaths, and simply ask yourself these three questions:
What am I seeing?
What am I hearing?
What am I feeling on my skin?
All meditation starts with mindfulness —- giving your full attention, your awareness, to some thing, some object of your attention. For example, mindfully focusing on the breath, mindfully watching a cloud, or… in this meditation, mindfully listening to a creek.
Benefits of Mindfulness
Mindfulness meditation makes the mind stronger by training it to stay focused in the present moment…..not worrying about the future or regretting the past.
It teaches you how to control your mind so your mind doesn’t control you.
This simple meditation cultivates a calm awareness in the body that leads to
- better relaxation
- greater enthusiasm for life
- a better ability to cope with stress and anxiety
