Researches and surveys say that mindful meditation is the best form of meditation, and can be an easier way to meditate for the common man who never attempted any form of meditation.
What is Meditation?
Meditation is a deep science, which helps bring your mind in total control of you, when you practice this thing dedicatedly every single day.
And there is no time to start or stop this. You can start meditating at any age, and at any day. Again if you don’t want to continue you may stop any time.
However, people who have once started it, and are reaping its benefits would never think of stopping, because meditating at a particular time of the day or at some time will become the part of existence for the people who have actually got benefitted.
Benefits of meditation
Meditation comes with many benefits. But strangely if you expect to see the benefits immediately from day one of starting it, then you will be disappointed.
That’s because the act of meditation is a practice to season the mind, and take it in control. And the mind is the most out of control thing in the existence of a human being.
Hence, it takes time to fully master this practice. But once you master it, you will learn to see the benefits coming out of the long and sustained practice.
They are as follows:
- Low and controlled blood pressure
- Relief from mental problems like hypertension, lack of concentration, depression, stress, anxiety, behavioral problems etc
- Relief from sleep apnea, insomnia etc
- Better reaction management and coordinated reactions as per situation
- Better brain functioning with increasing ability to focus
- An overall feeling of composure and inner happiness, strength, and vitality of mind and body
- There are many more positive effects of meditation which you will feel with practice and time.

What is mindful meditation
Mindful meditation is a branch of meditation, where the mind is instructed to stay on one place and focus on an object. The object of focus can be a visible point, a bead, a leaf, or your breaths, some sound, or anything where you can bring your whole concentration folded into a single point.
To stay mindful about your concentrated state, and observe or hear that one object in focus makes this a mindful form of meditation.
This is easy for practice amongst the urban robotic lifestyle people very much because of the easy concept, and ease of finding any one object near you to focus on.
This form of meditation does not attach itself to any rule, ritual, or posture … etc, unless you want to be very particular.
