Meditation is the experience of sustaining one’s focus on a thought, word, sensation or sound in order to calm the mind. Mindful meditation is the act of calming your mind and body through non-judgmental sustained attention. If you're prone to rumination, negative thinking or catastrophizing, mindful meditation is a skill you may wish to explore. Do you feel overwhelmed by any of the follow?
Cultivating a sense of peace, developing more neutral thoughts and appreciating what you have in the moment will likely help decrease your experience of stress. Health benefits abound.
