Meditation yields some serious benefits with many inspirational quotes on the benefits of meditation and mindfulness – just review BrainyQuotes of Thich Nhat Hanh. But, on a lighthearted note, I’ve collected these funny meditation quotes and mindfulness sayings for you to have a chuckle. Laughter is the best medicine. It’s one of nature’s gifts that’s free to all, so enjoy the moment with these funny mindfulness quotes!
Here are my best meditation quotes for lightening the mood. Some of these funny quotes and sayings apply to Yoga as well.
Practising in silence – Funny Meditation Meme
Many meditation schools teach silence as the best way to reach Zen or your inner self. I’ve attended 2-day Buddhist meditation retreats where silence was a requirement. It can be difficult to get used to at first, but I found it liberating. Here’s a little humor about being silent during yoga (one of those funny yoga quotes!) that also applies to meditation practice…Yoga police: “You have the right to remain silent!”.
Another of those Yoga quotes
Yoga is often thought of as a series of physical postures and stretches. As explained in The Yoga Bible (a great book btw, available at Amazon), “yoga is actually a state of mind”. The meaning of yoga or yuj in Sanskrit is “to center one’s thoughts, to concentrate on oneself, or to meditate deeply”. For when yoga is considered a physical exercise session only, this yoga quote does the trick…One of the biggest, most sad, and least funny yoga jokes of all: Yoga is a physical fitness program.
Meditation Humor about Pose
Most people sit in meditation. Sometimes when sitting there, your thoughts might be about the things you could be doing right now or need to do. You’re struggling because your’re feeling guilty about doing nothing but just sitting there. In this case, you might enjoy this funny meditation quote: Don’t just do something — Sit there!
Being in alpha state of mind…with mindfulness, means having presence. What better gift! When asked what gift he wanted for his birthday, the yogi replied “I wish no gifts, only presence”. Meditation puns are humorous.
About powerful benefits
Meditation has many benefits, as we all know. Happiness is one. Therefore it makes sense that a natural supplement for happiness gets rolled into one of the best funny quotes about meditation…another one of those meditation puns: The best vitamin to be a happy person is B1.
Mindfulness Sayings on Modern Life
Mindfulness means being aware of your feelings without judgment or distraction, being in the moment. When you’ve got a lot of work on, being mindful can be challenging. For when you’re feeling overwhelmed…this quote of Bertrand Russell may help: One of the symptoms of an approaching nervous breakdown is the belief that one’s work is terribly important.
or simply put: Let that shit go!
When changes are causing you concern, mindfulness can be difficult. Try lightening up with a little humor. Here’s a saying…Change is inevitable, except from vending machines.
When you’re carrying that past baggage in the ocean of life…Najwa Zebain: These mountains that you are carrying, you were only supposed to climb.
