The following mindfulness meditation practices can be used at home or in the workplace when you want to take a few moments for yourself.
Conscious Breathing Practice: The conscious breathing meditation practice uses the breath as a point of anchor, a place to return to when your mind starts to wander. A short and effective practice to restore a sense of calm.
The Three Minute Breathing Space: This practice is aimed at bringing us into the present moment. Step out of automatic pilot mode for just three minutes and feel the effect.
Uniqueness of Breath: This meditation centres on the uniqueness of each breath. Noticing any sensations or thoughts as they arise, the breath can be used as an anchor to the present moment when the mind starts to wander.
The Body Scan: This is a central practice of mindfulness meditation and helps us to connect with our bodies and in doing so, disconnect the mind from its ideas, opinions, beliefs and judgements.
Sounds and Thoughts: This meditation helps us to understand that we can let both sounds and thoughts come and go, without attachment. In this way, we can gain space to decide how best to respond.
Tibetan Singing Bowl Meditation: This meditation introduces the resonant sound of a Tibetan singing bowl. Here, we use the sound of the bowl as an anchor to our present experience.
Nature's Sounds Meditation: This guided meditation uses the sounds of nature as an anchor to the present moment.

I am an international barrister and meditation teacher. I set up Practical Meditation in 2016 and qualified as a teacher with the British School of Meditation in the same year. I have been meditating for several years and am passionate about using meditation in the workplace. I have designed and led meditation sessions for barristers, solicitors, mediators and accountants in and around London and am currently writing my first book: "The Simple Guide to Mindfulness".
In 2017, I set up The Mindful Kitchen Company with Miranda Gore Browne, a finalist on the first series of BBC2's "The Great British Bake Off". Together we invite people to "bake, cook, breathe and eat" at The Kitchen School in West Sussex or on location. Our events provide people with the opportunity to bake together and learn simple meditation practices that can be used to enhance wellbeing and reduce stress in the home, the workplace and beyond.
