This morning I made time. 15 minutes is not bad. With mindfulness meditation, your goal is to stay in the present. That’s easier than it sounds, because we daydream constantly. When you do wander during meditation, bring your attention gently back to the here and now. Classically, you would focus on the breath, but being here now is the bigger goal. Think of it this way: if someone came in and said “Boo!” you would not be startled at all if you are meditating correctly because you are already fully in the present. Eyes open, cross legged, back straight, feeling great with every breath.
