Mindful meditation is a practice that allows people to clear up their minds, focus on one thing and prevent stress and distraction. There are many different ways that you can start this practice, but for beginners it’s best to first find a place to sit. You then want to use a timer and focus on your breathing. Welcome your thoughts, let them cross through your mind and make sure you take your time. At the end of the day, your ultimate priority is your breathing.
