Practice: Extended Seated Meditation
Let's Give It a Try
Both of these practices are about 20 minutes long. The audio file comes from UCSD Health and was recorded by Steven Hickman. The YouTube practice comes from New Mindful Life http://newmindfullife.com/ The artist is a female.
In the next week:
- Do at least 2 formal meditations per week. One should be the sitting meditation, with or without the audio.
- Practice informally as often as possible, aiming for several times a day. Even one minute per day is beneficial. Doing it consistently even one minute per day helps to make it a routine. Once you practice for a minute, you may not want to stop!
- Cultivate a "begin again" practice--you can begin again whenever you've fallen off, as many times as necessary. A little is much better than none at all.
