What is meditation

Movement Meditation

Movement meditation is not a regular type of meditation, the term itself explains a lot about how you should make movements while you are meditating. In every meditation, the main goal is to be aware of the present moment.

You can do it while walking, jogging, or any type of slow movement you like.

How to practice:

Step 1: Select a type of movement of your choice and be in the present moment as if every second counts. “steady and Show” & “Inhale and Exhale”

Step 2: Try to feel each part of your body the expansion of the stomach, broadening of your chest, leg movement, hand movement, muscle tightening, loosening, etc.

Step 3: Do this for about 10 to 15 minutes a day for better results with your mind to be present in the moment. “If you can’t do this with movements try the same in the sitting position”.

Benefits you get:

  • Empowers you to become more observant.
  • Reducing stress temporarily.
  • Enabling yourself to start concentrating on your other sensations can help you feel more aware of your surroundings and less concentrated on your endless flow of worries and feelings.

My suggestion would be to try doing this while you are walking first (walk slow and focus on each step you make!).
