PRACTICE MINDFUL BREATHING MEDITATION


“The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, worry about the future, or anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly.” Buddha

Mindful breathing meditation is the simplest and easiest way to clear out your mind and calm yourself. You only have to focus your attention on your breath, the inhale and exhale. As its name implies, mindful breathing meditation uses the breath as your focus point. By doing so, you become aware of your mind's tendency to jump from one thing to another.





Mindful breathing brings you back to the present moment, the here and now, which forces you to focus on yourself, what's happening inside you, and step back from what's causing you stress or anxiety. It is the perfect way to disconnect from the outside world and reconnect with yourself.



We live in a society where our buzzing life makes it difficult to have some "me time", and we often get overwhelmed by all things happening around us. In a previous article, we talked about changes to make in order to improve our health and meditation is one of them. Stress is on the path to be the number one trigger for cancer, and we keep pushing our bodies thinking we are invincible. We need to say stop and calm down our rhythm, and focus on our health. If you don't have health, how do you want to experience all what life has to offer? Stress is associated with poorer memory, more aches and pains, higher risks for cancer, worsen heart dysfunction, increase blood pressure, trigger insomnia, and so much more. It is time to take care of yourself. And with a different approach than with paracetamol.


Breathing meditation is the perfect way to develop mindfulness, alertness and awareness. It's also a good antidote to restlessness and anxiety, and a great way to relax. In fact, while you focus on your breathing, it creates a positive effect on your entire physical and mental state. You will learn to accept and appreciate what comes in life and stop fighting your own thoughts and feelings.



WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF MINDFUL BREATHING?


“The breath is the current of life, connecting body and mind... it helps to have a focus for your attention, an anchor line to tether you to the present moment and to guide you back when the mind wanders, the breath serves this purpose.” Jon Kabat-Zinn

There are so many benefits of mindful breathing meditation but I cannot list all of them. Here are the main ones:


- Magnify your focus

- Increase your compassion

- Help awaken your true nature

- Reduce stress levels in your body

- Lower your heart rate

- Lower your blood pressure

- Relieve anxiety

- Increase happiness

- Relieve insomnia

- Boost creativity

- Strengthen immunity

- Increase your success (Athletes, creative celebrities, and even billionaires say meditation is the secret to their success. Meditation won't bring you money, but will open up your creativity and way of thinking. You will gain in productivity and clarity to make better and faster decisions).


Do you recognise yourself in one of those benefits you are looking for? If so, give a try to this meditation and share your experience.

I really hope this episode will benefit you as much as it does to me. Even if you have never tried meditation, give it a try, at least once, removing your thoughts about meditation. Come with a blank slate and experience this simple and relaxing meditation. If you are used to the practice of meditation, you can still use this one to calm down and recenter yourself in less than 10 minutes. If you want a longer experience, you can try our deep meditation to alleviate stress.



I hope you learnt something from this article. Feel free to read more in our blog section and practice with our free meditations on this website, our YouTube Channel, and on Spotify & Apple Podcasts.


And as always, Be Kind To One Another, Including Yourself.
