The 8th Part Of The Mindfulness Exercise For Improving Health

Mindfulness is the ability to be attentive to the present moment as it unfolds in a curious, non-judgmental and accepting manner.

Exercises to improve our ability to be mindful can help to get distance from disturbing thoughts and emotions as well as create a longer response time, which is beneficial to form calmer and more elaborated responses to occurrences.

Research have shown that practicing mindfulness can improve both physical and psychological health, as well as increase general well-being, attitudes and behaviours.

Here comes the eight part of the body scan, a continuation of the mindfulness exercise from last weeks, that you can record and use, in total 10 minutes long.

This is the essence/instructional parts of one version of the 3 major meditations within mindfulness but it usually lasts over 45 minutes with long parts of silence:

… Now let the body disappear into the background. Move your consciousness from your breathing and instead become aware of your thoughts, plans, pictures, dreams, feelings that come and go …

Sometimes for a little while, sometimes a for longer moment …

See if it is possible to just let whatever that is in your mind just come and go, like clouds that pass over the sky, without doing anything about them …

When your thoughts wander away, pay careful attention to your breathing. In this way you practice your ability to be aware of here and now, over and over again …

Sometimes your thoughts have an emotional charge or perhaps make you feel unwell, like sadness, irritation or anger.

To be continued.
