Mindfulness meditation is all about wakefulness and being present. In our life, we frequently function on autopilot, which means that we are locking ourselves inside our head and then not aware of what is taking place in our environment. You have most definitely tried walking or taking the bus to work, school or someplace else, and did not remember much of the travel. You did not pay attention to anything around you. This can be a pleasant experience of taking a minor break from your daily stress and just focus on your thoughts, but it also means that you may not be able to notice possible opportunities there may come your way, and you may, therefore, miss out of something wonderful.
In mindfulness, you will learn to be aware and focus only on your inhalations and exhalations and the different sensation connected to that. You will also have to remember only to focus on NOW and not on the past or the future. You will learn to be present in this very second. So do this guided exercise to help you become present.
