Meditation is all about being mindful of where you are in the world and becoming present in the moment and in what is going on around you. You need to become totally aware of where you are and of your surroundings to be truly present in the moment. This can take some practice your first few times, but here’s how you can do it.
- Keep your eyes closed and take a deep breath in.
- Pay attention to what you hear around you. What do you hear? What do you smell? What are you touching as you are in your meditative pose?
- Think about how it feels to sit? Do you feel tension in your body? Where is this tension?
Doing simple things like this will really put you present in the moment so that you can take advantage of this time you have to yourself.
