What is meditation?

Just like mindfulness and mnemonics, there are a whole range of ways to interpret and define what meditation is. Everyone will have their own unique style and method. But generally speaking, it is the practise of aligning your body and your mind.

How do you meditate?

Again, everyone is going to have their own style and interpretation of how you meditate.

But stereotypically people will meditate by getting in a relaxed comfortable position, controlling their breathing, and creating and exploring the stimulus that their senses can and will generate.

It’s the conscious act of getting in touch with yourself.

Who uses meditation?

Stereotypically, the practise would be associated with things like yoga, Buddhism, and Hinduism.

But there is no real ‘type’ of person that uses it. There are just those people that use it in one way or another, and people that don’t do it at all.

What is the difference between mindfulness and meditation?

Truth is, you can define all of this however you want to. But if you need a more rigid structure and definition; meditation is something that you do in order to achieve mindfulness.

  • Meditation you do.
  • Mindfulness you achieve.
  • One is a process.
  • One is a state.

You meditate using meditation and then you achieve mindfulness.

How does mnemonics link to all of this?

Mnemonics covers a whole area of subjects, topics, and concepts and is a great tool and method that can be use to help link the all the concepts together. Arguably, it helps make meditation and mindfulness easier to achieve.
