M For Mini Meditation: A To Z On Mindfulness For Newbies #StayMindfulWithMSN

Welcome to A To Z On Mindfulness For Newbies

The thirteenth letter to be explored in A To Z on Mindfulness For Newbies is M. M is for Mini Meditations.

Meditation can be anything that allows you to calm the mind, become more present at the moment, and feel connected to the universe. I use Mini Mediation to take a short break from my day. They are my favorites since I can practice them anywhere, anytime. So they’re my ideal mindfulness exercises whether I’m at my home or in the midst of a busy day at work.

 

Mini Meditations are simple meditation practices that require no or little preparations, and  can be done anywhere, anytime in less than a minute. 

 

They are extremely useful to increase the effectiveness on my regular meditations.

 

A To Z On Mindfulness : M For Mini Meditation

My favorite Mini Meditations 

Start Your Day Positive: Wake up early and start your day more positively This gives you the necessary energy for the rest of the day.
Mini Breathe: Stop what you are doing. And just breath in and breath out deeply 15 – 20 times.
Waiting In a Queue: Scan your body by doing Body scan Meditation and notice anywhere you feel stress or tension in your body. Make no judgments; just become aware of your body. 
Smell The Flowers: Stop while walking to your office or to shop. And smell fresh flowers, notice mindfully how beautiful are they.  
Repeat Positive Affirmations: Repeat these powerful positive affirmations during commercial breaks while watching TV.
Mini Walking Meditation: Walk slowly or normally but mindfully. As you walk become aware of your walking by noticing the movement of your body, your breath and the beautiful things passing around. 
Put your emotions into words. Label your emotions and put them into words. You can have a journal to record your thoughts or you can start a blog. This will ease out your stress and worries.
“Notice 5 Things Exercise”: Pay attention to your surroundings by noticing five lovely things you hear, see, smell, feel and taste. Just be with it for few seconds. 

Mini Grounding Meditation: Sit comfortably with your feet on the ground. Take a deep breath in. Feel your body as you inhale. Take a long breath out. Notice your body as you exhale. Follow your breath in and out. Rest your mind on your feet on the ground. Just be aware as you breathe in and breathe out.

Do one thing at a time.Do a single-task, and don’t multi-task. When you’re brushing your teeth, just brush. While you’re eating, just eat. When you’re bathing, just bathe.

Mindfulness Challenge For The Day

 Sound Meditation

  • Put up post-it notes around your house to remind you to be mindful.
  • Sit in a comfortable position and become aware of your breath.
  • Slowly shift your attention to the sounds that are present around you.
  • Don’t search for any sounds. Let them come and fill your ears with simply hearing sounds near and far away. 
  • Be aware that sounds arise and fade away, and notice if there are any rhythm in the sounds. 
  • When your mind wanders or fixates on a particular sound, gently return your attention to the flow of sounds occurring in the present moment.
  • after some time, shift your attention back to your breathing and sit in silence.
  • Then gently open your eyes and remain calm for few more minutes.

 

When walking, walk.

When eating, eat.

  1. Nice set of mental excercises that can be done by everyone easily. We all need a stress buster at odd times in the day and many of the methods you have listed would come in handy.

  2. I agree about not multi tasking, Vasantha. Better to do one thing at a time, and do it well. I also practice mindfulness during my evening walks. Just concentrate on my gait, my breathing and the nature around me. Perfect mini-meditation!

  3. For me mini meditations are just sitting quietly and concentrating on my breathing.. and slowly relaxing all muscles. This I could do anywhere even if there are people around me
