Mindfulness Meditation

From the Book - Wherever You Go, There You Are by Jon Kabat-Zinn

Think of yourself as a mountain.
Try setting aside a time everyday for just being. Start with 5 minutes. Sit down and watch the moments unfold, with no agenda other than to be fully present. Use the breath as an anchor to tether your thoughts to the present moment. Your thinking mind will drift here and there, depending on the currents and winds moving in the mind, until at some point, the anchorline grows taut and brings you back. This will happen alot. Bring your attention back to the breath, every time the mind wanders. Think of yourself as a mountain.

I hope this isn't too silly a question, but I considered the possibility of meditating whilst cycling, slipping into "the zone" whilst pedaling. Is it possible to meditate during a 1000 rep crunch challenge? Could a runner "drift" into a mindfulln...

Hi, I don't usually actively meditate but when I run I see it as my meditation. I love to clear my mind and focus on breathing. I don't know if this can be considered meditation but I find it relaxing and it allows an escape from any stress. I fin...
