“The practice of mindfulness begins in the small, remote cave of your unconscious mind and blossoms with the sunlight of your conscious life, reaching far beyond the people and places you can see.”
Practice makes perfect
Practice is made easy with mindfulness apps like Headspace and Meditation Studio. These apps offer instruction on how mindfulness works and how to get the best results. Meditation Studio offers programs to address specific problems like building confidence or managing pain. Having your meditation app on your mobile means that you can run the programs wherever you go, including the spa. Which brings us to the second of the two important elements that will bring you the benefits of mindfulness: the right environment.
A mindful environment
You need to find a comfortable position for your body, in an environment which is calm and restful. There should be no distractions or interruptions. For some lucky people this might be at home, but if not, the Tepidarium at Nirvana is the perfect place. Quiet, comfortable and warm this is the perfect environment for meditation. You can run your mindfulness program through your headphones from your mobile without interruptions or other disturbance.
Relax your mind with a skincare routine
Another top tip for successful meditation comes from our skin care specialists. They suggest that a simple change to your everyday skin care routine can help to relax the mind and prepare you to unwind. Rather than quickly applying your night cream, why not take time to follow their suggested routine in our video above.
If you’ve ever been curious, now’s the perfect time to start your own mindfulness journey. Please let us know how you get on, whether you’ve used the apps and where your peaceful places are – we’d love to hear from you.
