Life is already complicated enough, mindfulness meditation should be simple. Don't just take our word for it:
Please, when you practice meditation, don't make any effort. Allow yourself to be like a pebble at rest. The pebble is resting at the bottom of a river, and the pebble does not have to do anything. While you are a walking, you are resting. While you were sitting, you are resting. pic.twitter.com/f0sgTg5FWz— Thich Nhat Hanh (@thichnhathanh) April 16, 2018
Loving Kindness is one of the easiest (and rewarding) mindfulness practices. It involves simply repeating a phrase to yourself, usually a positive affirmation for yourself or others. "May I have happiness" is a classic example. This type of practice is widespread throughout the world and is the backbone of many meditation systems. If you follow along with Unified Mindfulness, we call it "Hear Good."
In the video below, I guide you through a quick breathing exercise then a five-minute hit of "Hear Good". It's an easy and adaptable practice that can give very powerful benefits in just a short period of time.
