Meditation is a great way to boost your health, improve your mood, and feel more connected to those around you. But it can be difficult to figure out how to get started.
Meditation is best practiced in a quiet environment with limited distractions. To help you focus on your breathing and self-reflection, it’s important that you feel comfortable in the space.
If you are living with your family or friends, do your best to secure a quiet place. You may even consider using headphones to block outside noise.
Here\’s 6 tips to help you start meditating:
1. Guided meditation is a great way to learn how to meditation because all you need to do is listen to reap the benefits of a mindful meditation session. There are a variety of different guided meditation apps and free resources that you can test and use anywhere. Additionally, there are specific meditations for a lot of things such as sessions for focus, relaxation, and sleep, among other concentrations.
2. A common reason you may stop meditating is when you find your mind wandering or you are suddenly challenged with the practice. Part of meditation is learning to overcome these challenges by having the right mindset and being committed.
You may find that after your first or second session, you are still not able to fully focus on your breathing or may find an overflow of emotions. This is normal. Meditation takes practice. Give yourself some leeway to find your form and become okay with emotions and restlessness.
3. You don\’t need to dive right in with daily meditation practice and long sessions, even though it can be beneficial. Meditating two to three days a week for at least ten minutes can be a great way to get started without feeling obligated to add it to your daily schedule. Just as you need to find the right place, find the right time that works with you, and increase the sessions and time period as you feel more comfortable.
4. If you are still a bit unsure about getting started, joining a group meditation can help you learn the basics. Also, participating in a group can motivate you to actually meditate and build a routine.
5. Sitting cross legged isn’t always the most comfortable position. There are several meditation positions to try over time. The goal, however, is to be comfortable, whether you are sitting, standing, laying down, or walking.
6. Getting started with meditation can be a bit overwhelming. You may be wondering which place is best to meditate, how to get in a mindful state, and how to make sure you are doing it right. Meditation is a personal experience, and you may find what works for another person may not work for you.
