Taking Three Mindful Breaths as A Meditation
Introducing mindfulness exercises into your daily life doesn’t have to be complicated. While it’s true that many people associated the practice of meditation with enormous amounts of self-discipline, self-control, and time spent sitting on a cushion, making mindfulness a part of your life doesn’t need to be difficult. In fact, there shouldn’t be any struggle at all.
If you’re new to the idea of practicing mindfulness, you might be wondering: what does it actually mean to live more mindfully? How do we suddenly become magically more present from moment to moment? Is there a special technique, or some kind of secret trick that we need to learn?
Mindfulness Meditation with Breathing
As it turns out, living mindfully is both incredibly intricate and surprisingly simple. But starting down the path towards a more peaceful and present existence can be as easy as taking three deep breaths.
There’s no reason to delay when it comes to starting a mindfulness practice. Why? Because your practice doesn’t need to be complicated. You don’t need special clothes, high tech equipment, a certain room, scented candles or incense, or any other trappings or complications. All you need is a couple of minutes and three deep breaths.
