Whenever we think about Meditation first image comes to our mind is Someone sitting in silent place with closed eyes and folded hands. You are the beginner, right? Let’s make it easy for you.
You can start meditating with open eyes also. Yeah! There is no need to stay away from distractions and sit in the silent zone with closed eyes. Umm, meditating in distraction will make you more focused. Yeah! It is true.
How can you start MINDFULNESS meditation anywhere?
The basic of all this stuff is just turning your mind away from all the distracting things around and to dive into own body, own mind. That’s it. You have to forget the rest and have to dive into yourself.
Start with focusing on all the small sounds around you. You have to find a path to reach out to that little sounds in between loud ones. As you start trying, your mind will automatically switch to airplane mode until your mind get distracted by yourself. To be honest, no one can distract a person without himself/herself. Even in the CROWD. Yep, the only person who is distracting you from all good things is YOU.
As you started focusing on little sound. Boss! That’s it. You’ve learned meditation. Now you just have to take it on next level. Now you have to take a look inside your mind. Start listening to your heartbeats. Start focusing on your breath. Keep this in mind; your mind should have to be EMPTY. It will be little hard at the beginning but once you get into this blanket of your mind will cover you from all the Negative things around you.
What you have to understand is You can start Mindfulness Meditation Anytime and Anywhere.
Observing child around you without a word in your mind is also Meditation.
Listening to the sound of a pin dropping in the room is Meditation.

Roaming alone with Nature and observing his beauty is Meditation.
Listening to peaceful music is Meditation.
