Our mind and our body are interconnected with each other, so if your body is well balanced, your mind will also be in balance. Make sure that your spine is straight with head up for instance your head is touching the sky.
- Meditate in early morning
No doubt early morning is an ideal time to do mediation. It is quiet, calm and your mind is not fulfilled with the usual stress and there is less chance to get disturbed. You should make it habit to get up half hour earlier in the morning.
- Start with a breathe
Breathing slows down our heart rate, relaxes the muscle and mind and let our mind to be focused. There is no need to regulate our breathe let it be like normal.
It is not important whether to do meditation with closed or open eyes, it’s up to you. Closed eyes will be more likely to drift away your thoughts and perceptions. Open eyes will allow you to be more present.
Don’t restricts your thoughts while meditation, this will only let you feel agitated or frustrated. Just politely ask them to leave.
One of the biggest mistake beginners make is not insuring peaceful and practiced condition. If you already have back in your mind that may be your phone is ringing or whatever else then you will not be able to attain deep relaxation.
- A scented candle, a bouquet of flowers can be a fantastic little touches to enhance your meditation experience.
- Turning off the lights may help you to concentrate more.
- Listening to soft music may help you relax better.
- Wear comfortable clothes
Avoid restrictive clothing that might create obstacles in your concentration during meditation instance jeans, tight pants etc.
Never force yourself to meditate longer if you are not able to do so. You may start with 10 minutes and only sit longer if you are comfortable. In time you might like to extend your meditation time to 25 minutes or an hour. Do what feels right for you.
Meditation is a wonderful practice but it can be very difficult in beginning. You might lose your angriness, depression, insecurity, burden of old ages, the fear of death. If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself, but to your estimate of it; and only through meditation you have the power to REVOKE at any moment.
