Maintaining a healthy mindset through meditation

Research has shown that mindfulness meditation may help patients by fostering acceptance and by creating a comfortable acknowledgment of stressors. Below are some basic steps to help you get started in your meditation practice.

1

Find a quiet place to sit

Anywhere you can remain stable and feel calm.

2

Start small

If you are a beginner, it is best to set a time limit of 5 to 10 minutes.

3

Follow your breath

Breathe in and out, and simply notice the sensations in your body.

4

Recognize inattention

Your mind may wander, and that is OK, but acknowledge it.

5

Gently come back

When you are ready to end your meditation, take time to slowly bring yourself back into the environment.

Caregivers can often overlook one very important detail—
taking care of themselves!
