Guided and Mindfulness Meditation
Welcome to Mindworks Meditation Blog
Meditation advice provided in Mindworks’ blog by our international team of experts will help you keep your practice dynamic and fresh, whether you’re just starting out or have been honing your skills for years. For practical guidance and inspiration, you’ll find the latest mindfulness and awareness meditation tips in these blog pages.
You may find our Top 10 Best Tips on How to Meditate a helpful way to begin. Commitment to your practice can help you access your own innate sense of well-being and enable you to be present and attentive to whatever is happening right now. Over time, you’ll find that meditation practice can lead to a more joyful and positive outlook on life.
Mindfulness is about being committed to the present moment and suspending judgment. If we think about it, we recognize that we’re actually never anywhere but the present. Yet our minds tend to struggle with this reality, jumping all over the place, recalling past events, anticipating future outcomes, and churning over tough personal situations. When we’re more aware of the present moment, we’re less likely to become mired in these unproductive emotional patterns.
The Mindworks blog and free mindfulness meditation App give us what we need to get started with meditation. We discover the power of guiding our attention back to the breath and to the present moment. Our practice is nurtured with fresh new Mindworks content designed to keep us sitting and reflecting.
Through meditation and awareness, we come to realize that we don’t have to remain stuck in self-imposed limitations. We have the ability to change our circumstances for the better by working with our minds. Thanks to our meditation practice, we become healthier, endure less stress and anxiety, and develop an improved sense of focus and productivity. Through awareness practice, we become more flexible and understanding, and gradually discover an innate sense of well-being that gives us a more positive and joyful experience of life. The benefits of meditation are numerous and well documented—we only have to sit to open ourselves to all of the possibilities.
Can I really practice meditation with an App?
The mission of Mindworks is to foster greater happiness and well-being by making meditation relevant to today’s challenges and accessible to anyone—any time, any place. Mindworks gets you started and keeps you going!
It may seem counter-intuitive to use our endlessly-distracting smart phones to foster the happiness and well-being of an aware, present mind... but it works! With our App, you always have access to mindfulness instructions, guided meditations, tips and reminders. Our Mindworks meditation experts have carefully designed the exercises in the App to give you everything you need to develop a consistent and effective daily practice.
So, let’s get started! After downloading the Mindworks meditation App, we recommend going to the Guided Meditations section and watching the three short videos under Start Here. Then meditate for 10 minutes a day with the M7: Learn to Meditate series. To motivate yourself further, check out the timed meditation sessions that last from 2.5 to 30 minutes. Turn on the Daily Cup reminder and enjoy a quick and uplifting contemplation as you begin each day. And for help navigating life’s myriad challenges, have a look at our Working with Challenges programs that provide a guided tour through our expanding library of Mind Talks.
We hope you’ll enjoy the Mindworks Meditation Blog, and App. Your thoughts and suggestions are welcome.
