To learn mindfulness and meditate, do you have to sit in this funny old position?
Well, luckily the answer is “no”. What you do need to do is be able to sit in your most comfortable position.
The whole point of learning mindfulness and practising meditation is to slow down all the millions of tumbling thoughts going through your head down to
One – Calm – Quiet – Focus
And the easiest way for most of us to do that is to sit on your bog standard dining room chair.
Now with my acupuncturist’s head on, I know that some people suffer from chronic neck and back pain. They find sitting in an ordinary chair or a chair of any sort absolutely excruciating after a few minutes.
If that is the case, then I recommend you learn your mindfulness and meditation practice lying down. And that you mix that up with learning how to practice mindfulness and meditation walking as well.

I have written a blog to help you choose your best position for doing your practice. It goes through the ‘wheres’ and ‘why fors’ of 6 different positions and should help you choose which one could be the best for you.
Also remember you don’t have to stick with the same position all of the time, as you can vary them as well.
So if you want to have a read, pop on over to the website and let me know what you think.
