Common meditation experiences
Common meditation experiences include having a dull or sleepy mind OR a busy mind, full of thoughts. Don’t worry about having either of these, they are normal!
To combat a dull or sleepy mind
Make sure you aren’t getting too warm. Video tips 1 & 2 show two ways you can sort out this problem.
To help either a busy mind or a sleepy one
Take a look at how you are sitting (if you are sitting!) Tips 3 – 8, and Tip 10 cover different ways you can make subtle changes to your posture that can help to calm your mind or perk you up.
This can become a real distraction to keeping your calm, mindful focus. Tip no. 9 will help you stop this from happening.
After you have finished
After you have finished your mindfulness meditation session, what then? Do you take your ‘meditative state of mind’ with you when you get up from your chair or off your cushion or mat? If you have a tendency to forget your calm state within minutes of finishing, try ‘Take the View of the Mountain’ as described in Tip 11. Its a way of thinking that enhances taking a pragmatic view of the ‘stuff’ that happens in your life.
My TOP TIP
My top tip is to use my free video ‘9 Breaths to a calmer mind’. This is a 5-minute video showing you how to do a simple, quick and easy meditation that is brilliant at quickly calming your mind.
