We are all looking for ways to de-stress and relax, and there are many ways to do this. Mindfullness Meditation promotes relaxation by encouraging being present with our challenges and accept them, rather than try to escape them. The Buddha taught that we should practice being with our problems and that when we do this we show up for life. The idea is to become more present with ourselves just as we are. It is being present without judgment.
This type of mindfulness meditation encourages us to accept our life's situation as it is, which means there is no need to cope with our problems.
