  1. I will take your technique just pause and watch the breath!!! to follow further to destress. do you follow deep breath or you follow the natural rhythm? As we have seen taking few deep breaths also relax our mind ..which one to follow? this doubt arises as we are practicing many techniques to relax
  2. What impact did stopping and practicing a minute of silence have on your next activity? its very simple excercise ...like a revision to the previous class session ..just bringing back the awareness to the current moment when mind wanders ..kind of refreshment to the next activity..Actually to be frank , i felt asleep after completing my previous body scan excercise ..then i started this simply stopping ..i felt like a refreshment to the next activity for the evening. wonderful experience !!!
  3. Q.) How does the way you use your body impact how you feel? Q.) How others respond? How does attention on your body language and breathing impact your communication? Actually , i dont feel any impact ..just i followed the video instructions ..awareness flows through the different area of from down to top of the body parts.I did not feel the bone or muscle .. when we put attention on our body language and breathing ...my concentration not going to the conversation ..what i think is to sync body and breath , it will take time it seems i dont know how long ?? people to people it differs ..Let me practice more
  4. 1.Some effects of this practice period for me have been … I believe the effect may be very big when we practice continuously.As a beginner for me , the effect which i felt is my mind is constantly telling me to concentrate on breathing...breathing breathing 2. What I’m surprised about in my life right now is … Last year i was in very stressful state about the pandemic and some other thing.Now got some kind of positive belief about the life.
  5. yes ..i will try Gillian .Thank you
  6. Thanks for your reply. It sounds like your mind was trying to conceptualize the experience but that you then came back to pure awareness of the experience sorry i didnot understand this "conceptualize the experience" can you please explain further?
  7. How does stopping to take a whole body breath affect your mood or attitude? As a first time , it increases the curiosity how a body can breath!!! When doing , mind chatters like which part is breathing now ???? one thing i realised is i need to bring the awareness to breathing when the mind chatters ..that im telling myself . Overall I felt It was a wonderful experience and the kind of relaxation when i did in the morning. Exploring the ways to connect my mind and body through breath
  8. What impact does bringing your full attention to a conversation have on you or those around you? Now a days When im starting a conversation im telling myself "Do mindful listening" and im listening them fully and gives a satisfaction.Before that conversation goes and mind chatters side by side ..That awareness came to me when ever im conversing through practice..Trying my activities mindfully
  9. Congratulations Eve for your accomplishment !!! Whether u know meditation before this 100 days or u were new ?? Out of the 100 days which one did you face difficulty and how did u overcome that ? and the one which you enjoyed ? can you please share your experience ?
  10. 1. What I noticed from this week’s practice was… Mindfulness breathing and awareness of the body 2. Things that will help me stay focused on my practice next week are… Awareness about the breathing and the body will help me to stay focused
  11. What information do you receive when checking in with your body? I can feel the awareness goes througheach parts of the body.But i cannot connect the awareness of my head during my first breath. My concentration goes either to breathing or head ..not sync both head and breath ..sameway for 2 nd and 3 rd breath. I can concentrate three breaths continuously as wellas bringing my awareness to head stomach and then to chest .separately .but synching with breath is difficult for me.
  12. For my mind , journaling my thoughts before bed for tracking and relaxation which i am doing daily now a days ... For body and heart ,i need to find out..will update here once found
  13. @Abby Iam also a newbie to this mindfulness course and also for challenge. As Gillian said " " Take the word "practice" as a mantra for ur mindfulness practice. Gillian insisted this in my clarification too...I have joined in august 21 now sep15.Daily im practicing this 100 day challenge. I am taking up the challenge daily as im receiving videos ..but i am not satisfied with my performance to answer for the integrated practice questions. So what i am doing is ? Daily im repeating the older practice and finding the difference in me (for eg : In breathing excercise ) Initailly i faced the challenge and posted here in forum some questions like you..i am grateful to Rick and Gillian for the answers. Now im feeling the improvement (productivity increased) in my daily chores and im feeling happy on accomplishing my tasks soon. There you can find your happiness !!!! A great Welcome Abby and All the best for your mindfulness journey
  14. Reflection Question: Q.) How did the practice of wishing others well impact your interactions? Q.) Did it shift your mood in any way? Did it impact the quality of your attention? When i did for the first time..i did not know the difference but now i can feel that my awareness goes from breathing to my baby and then to husband and then to me and back to my breathing. Wow !!! wonderful excercise..i loved it this time
  15. I would like to know about why this wishing ourselves and others have included in mindfulness course ? Does it have any impact with mindfulness ?
