Mindfulness Meditation

in Meditation, Reference

While there are many different varieties of meditation that are practiced today, the two main types are  “Mindfulness of Breathing” and “Loving Kindness Meditation.” The first type mentioned here, not surprisingly, focuses on breathing, while the latter focuses more on quality of life. In meditation, it’s important to find a quiet place to practice and then find a comfortable posture to sit in. Since you’re likely going to be sitting in the same position for eventually longer durations, it’s a good idea to sit comfortably, and perhaps even add comfort to your posture with a meditation pillow. In “Mindfulness of Breathing” meditation, start by focusing completely on the in and outs of your breath. This helps to enhance your concentration and achieve a mental peace and calm.
