Practicing Mindfulness Made Easier

It has been concluded from various studies that meditation of mindfulness will often fight any physical and mental condition. Some of the known conditions include post-traumatic stress disorders, anxiety and psoriasis. Irritable bowel syndrome and fibromyalgia are also included. Some very recent studies have indicated the effects of mindfulness on depression that is clinical in nature. The art of mindfulness was taught to the participants of these studies. After that, they were all asked to go about their daily routine. The participants were then later recalled back to have an MRI performed. It came out clear that the participants’ amygdala had taken a remarkable change. This part of the brain is usually involved in determining the emotions of a person. It is also involved in depression. There was a general decrease in depressed thoughts among the participants. Mindfulness is a great thing to practice in as much as not many people have embraced it. This is due to the challenges related to relaying information to them. But, this is going to change.

There is a sense of automation of response by our minds that leads us to having longing and negative thoughts. They usually determine our emotional state. It may be viewed as though we do not have control of our minds. But, the converse is true. We have control and can reign it in. Mindfulness is the only thing that is responsible for this and it happens in the following steps.

Set aside some time for yourself so as to take on an activity that will reduce anxiety. A massage or a warm bath can do the magic. A period of around twenty minutes will be enough. You will then need a place that is totally peaceful and far from distraction. This will be the right place for you to sit. Without the help or the use of an alarm, set your time limit. Alarms are widely known for causing destruction to the progress that you will have built within the entire process. The time limit should preferably be in intervals of five minutes. Adding an extra five minutes for each passing day is a good idea too. Ensure that you find a comfortable position that will keep you fit through the entire process. Make sure that the desired position does not grant you any form of discomfort during the entire process.

It is imperative that your breath is followed efficiently. This covers both the moments that you breath in and when you breath out. Make sure your mind does not wander off. It is almost inevitable for your mind to move from place to place. As you go on practicing, this natural process will allow for the decline of such. In case it wanders too much, return to focusing on your breath. This is how simple the process is.
