Working with sleepy mind

One of the most effective (but definitely under the category of ‘don’t try this at home’!) strategies for combating sleepy mind must be sitting on the edge of a deep well during meditation.

Posture

Just like water can’t flow through a hose which is crinkled, so energy can’t flow freely through a body which is stiff and tense.

Mindfulness in daily life

It’s not difficult to include some mindfulness into our everyday life – we just need to remember to be mindful, which sometimes is easier said than done!

Walking meditation

Walking meditation is a beautiful practice which can be like a bridge between our formal sitting meditation and everyday life.
