Mindfulness Story

  1. 1
    Posture
    Sit with a straight back and relax your neck and shoulder. It is important you feel comfortable so you can concentrate and relax naturally.
  2. 2
    Breath
    Breathe deeply with your nose. But, do not inflate the lungs completely. make sure to exhale nicely and slowly.
  3. 3
    Concentration
    Concentrate on the feeling of cool air in the nose as you inhale. Distracting thoughts are fine. It is important you acknowledge these thoughts then bring your concentration back to your breath.
  4. 4
    Eyes
    close your eyes and focus on your breath. if it is comfortable to you, you can close your eyes halfway.

For beginners, it is recommended to take 3 minutes a day to practice mindfulness.
