Meditation has been used for centuries to increase calmness and physical relaxation, improve psychological balance, cope with illness, and enhance overall health and well-being. According to the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, a growing body of scientific research on meditation suggests that it is a very powerful tool for increasing the capacity for mindfulness, regulating emotion, and enhancing self-awareness.

If chronic thinking persists and interferes with your perceived ability to practice the Mindful Meditation technique, do a “mind dump” before you start. Write down everything on your mind until you feel like you’ve dumped it all.
If meditating at home isn’t always an option, arrive to work or a meeting just a few minutes early, park and lock the door (try it incognito with your sunglasses on) or take quiet time during a lunch break. Until a habit is established, set a reminder on your phone or computer.
