To move or not to move when meditating

Updated: Nov 30, 2022

Sometimes even after taking several moments to find a comfortable meditation position for a particular session, during the practice you may realize something doesn’t feel right. Then you may start to wonder, should I move or not?

If it’s near the beginning of a practice, then it may be easiest to move and adjust. If you are further along in the practice and you would like to preserve stillness, then there are a couple of options. First, you can breathe with the sensation and see what happens, it may just pass. Second, if breathing with the sensation doesn’t quite work, then you can mindfully adjust—meaning you pay attention to the sensations of the entire movement as you adjust.

Remember, mindfulness is about being aware of the current moment in a kind way, sometimes moving is the most compassionate thing you can do for yourself.
