About Kelly McGonical

Welcome to day one

Mindfulness meditation is a powerful tool that can help you upgrade your inner technology, your mind, to keep up with demands of our increasingly complex world.

I think of mindfulness as a type of fitness training for the mind, that strengthens it to be more focussed, and calm. One of the most powerful ways to develop mindfulness is initially through the practice of meditation.

We begin this one month program with a guided meditation that connects us to the body. The body is a reliable anchor to the present moment, whereas the mind takes us into a virtual reality of thinking about the past or the future.

So we start by bringing our attention to awareness of our senses and the body. The mind will continuously pull your attention to your thoughts, and your challenge is to notice when you’ve become distracted, and then simply bring your attention back to the focus of the meditation – sensations in your body.

It sounds simple, but it’s actually very challenging.
