Mindfulness Breathing and being in the present


Mindfulness also involves acceptance, meaning that we pay attention to our thoughts and feelings without judging.

Setting aside a few minutes for mindfulness breathing can make a difference to your day. This tool can help one return to the present moment during challenging and stressful times.

What is mindfulness breathing meditation? It is focusing your attention on your breathing as you breathe gently. Noticing your breathing coming in and out. There’s no need to change your breathing but to be aware of it from moment to moment. Mindfulness breathing meditation can be powerful as it focuses on the present moment to our thoughts, sensations, emotions, and surroundings.

Mindfulness breathing meditation can provide you with a sense of control, increased self-awareness, a sense of realization, calmness and peace during stressful times.

“The mind is just like a muscle– the more you exercise it, the stronger it gets, and the more it can expand.”

Mindfulness is available to us in every moment, whether through meditations and body scans or mindful moment practices like taking time to pause and breathe when the phone rings instead of rushing to answer it.
