Things to Consider Before You Start

Things to Consider Before You Start

1. You do not need to buy anything. You can practice mindfulness anywhere that is comfortable for you. 

2. The goal is not to quiet your mind. Your brain is the most active thing in your body, it can not be quiet. 

3. Your mind will wander. It is natural for our brains to wander and that is okay. It is having the self-control to bring it back to focus on the present. 

4. Do not let your brain judge you for being distracted. 

5. Remember, it is all about returning your attention.

3. Notice Your Body

3. Notice Your Body

As you are completing mindfulness, think about the times your body feels tense or uneased. Is it when your mind is wandering or when you are focused? 

It will be good to take note of this for the next session.

2. Set a Limit

If you are just starting out try not to do it for too long. Try between 5-10 minutes. As you get better, you can make this time longer.
