Mindfulness Vs Meditation: The Difference Between The Two


by Guest Blogger and Mediation Coach Dorcas Barry

People often get confused between mindfulness and meditation, which is not surprising as they 
cross over in lots of ways. The main difference is that mindfulness is a way of being in the world, as you go about your daily life, creating subtle changes in where you put your thoughts and attention. Meditation requires taking some time out, away from the normal day to day activities, to focus your attention on connecting with the silent space within.

Where it can get confusing is that Mindfulness also includes the practice of mindfulness meditation, focusing on the present moment, but taking time out alone just to do the meditation. This is where mindfulness and meditation intertwine with each other.

There are lots of different kinds of meditations and practices. The trick is to keep trying different ways until you find the one that works for you. You can't get it wrong! Just getting starting and prioritising the time each day to build your practice until it becomes a habit you can't live without and it starts to create positive changes in other areas of your life.

Often people find guided meditation an easy way to start, or join a group that meets weekly to motivate yourself. Meditating in a group is a really powerful way to create this positive change in your life, and is also much more fun.
