First of all, I find it difficult to meditate. However, mindfulness is more natural.
My experience is different. I find it easier to meditate, when I find time to do it, because I’m specifically setting myself apart from everything else going on.
I find mindfulness tougher because it requires my presence more in the moment and I find myself caught up in everything else going on in the moment.
I have trouble being still for meditation, It's not so much being distracted but being still. I don't seem to have time for stillness. I live and breath in the moment so mindfulness is my cup of tea.
Funny how we use these terms in such different ways.
To me, mindfulness is a necessary quality of meditation, it's not either-or.
Stillness, physical or mental? I can be walking, but my mind can be still.
Mental training is a fascinating topic.
