Happy Mindfulness Day
In honor of the second annual Mindfulness Day, here are a few stories from our website on practice, practice tips, and experiences from our writers.
Mindfulness Day—September 12—was created last year by Wisdom Publications to raise awareness about the value of mindfulness. You can celebrate the day any way you'd like—maybe you've been thinking about starting your own practice or perhaps getting your community involved by forming a meditation group? Here are a few stories looking at how to incorporate mindfulness into your life, from full-out practice pieces to small ways we can bring mindfulness into our everyday lives.
Meditation, Getting Started: So you want to start practicing meditation, but need to know the very basics—like how to sit. Mindfulness pioneer Jon Kabat-Zinn offers helpful tips for beginners from his new book.
Waking up to Mindfulness: our blogger, Ed Halliwell, talks about his own experiences with getting into mindfulness meditation. He invites your comments and questions on the subject.
