Just Decide to Start

The first step is always the hardest. You will have to be very firmly convinced that you want to start practicing mindfulness meditation. Once you do, it will be so much easier. You don’t need any equipment or hours of your free time. Minutes will do the job.

Do Not Judge

The whole point is to live in the moment and focus on your own senses. In the process, you should stop judging others and that will only promote your success. So every time that you get those judgy thoughts, let them go.


Breathing is that physiological feature that can control your current state. Slow it down, and start taking deep breaths. Feel each and every single one of them. Make sure that you’re really breathing through the nose and let go through the mouth.
