The second week of our course we did a walking meditation which was walking with focusing on your steps on your breath on your surroundings on counting your steps.
Practising mindfulness meditation is stepping back from this and observing your thoughts.
We observe worries, concerns, mental commentaries on our past on our future.
The mind is synonymous to thinking. And we do it a lot!
We learned how we can use labeling and interventions to interrupt the thought pattern.
At home I used a guided meditation (on CD) to do a short meditation and felt relaxed after.

You can only breath in the moment, not in the past not in the future.
