The definition of Meditation and Mindfulness meditation:

Meditation in general concept is the process of training our ordinary mind to better manage its thoughts, emotions, and feelings, in order to become relax, think more clearly, and live a healthier, happier and mindful life.

This simple mind training exercise will bring clarity and awareness to your mind; Practiced regularly you will develop the ability to respond wisely instead of reacting blindly.

Mindfulness meditation is the basic form of meditation that is done by paying attention to our breath. It’s been around for ages, since the time of Buddha. It has brought to mainstream though by Dr. Jon Kabat Zinn thirty years ago and has become more recognizable in recent years.

Mindfulness meditation is simply the process of noticing our experience in present moment, and being nonjudgmental about any emotions or thoughts arise; in another word, Mindfulness is nonjudgmental awareness of the present moment.

We simply look at our emotions, feelings, and thoughts while meditating,… acknowledge them, let them be and let them fade away…and bring the awareness back to the breath. And do it again & again & again……!
