The Magic of Music & Mindfulness Exercise No 3

Posted by on Feb 2, 2016

Music has that magic quality of transporting you back in time or moving you in such a way that can be quite intoxicating.

Using music and practicing mindfulness has some amazing benefits like quieting the mind, stress relief and giving you a sense of well being.

Try this lovely little exercise to relax and calm you and still that mind. You can do it at home, on the train on your way to work, any where you can sit or stand still for a few minutes.

Exercise No:3

Choose a piece of music that you find really relaxing.

Close your eyes and concentrate on just listening to the music.  Your mind will wander off onto other things but that’s OK just allow it to return to the music.

Try not to judge the process just observe what is happening and let the music anchor you to the present.

If you become restless just notice it, don’t try to stop it, just allow it to happen and refocus your mind to the music.

This exercise will really help you find the silence within your mind.

Practice this regularly and you will find the benefits will extend into your every day life.
