Meditation, have you heard about mindful meditation?
Meditation can help our well-being; being a better person in our daily life, but also can help keeping our mind focus, calm and clear (while battling for waves in surfing for exemple).
“If you were to ask me what was the most important experience of my life, I would say it was learning to meditate. For me, that is the most important thing a person can do to restore harmony and evolve to a higher state of consciousness.” Deepak Chopra
At blossom, we believe that the primary purpose of exercice is to feel strong, good, and healthy. But what about the wellbeing of our mind? Well, since we started practicing daily mindful meditation and joyful mindfulness, we realized that meditation and exercising have one big similarity: both can improve the quality of our life. –by gaining physical ability while exercising and gaining mental abilities when practicing mindful meditation.
Meditation is the practice of focusing the mind. Meditation is about living in the present and ‘detoxing’ from the constant over-stimulation around us.
“Mindfulness has to do with paying attention to what’s happening in the moment without judgment.” Mirabai Bush.
