HOW WAS YOUR FIRST MEDITATION?
How was your first meditation? What did you notice? Did you fall asleep? Or maybe you noticed agitation or boredom? Did you print out the meditation journal from yesterday?
Practising mindfulness can be difficult at first as you start to become more aware of the distractible nature of the mind. Noticing this is the first step to developing mindfulness, that is, the capacity to tune in and be aware of what’s happening from moment to moment.
As time goes by, with more regular practice, you can develop the capacity to have mindful moments in daily life, not simply when you’re meditating.
