around for thousands of years. There is a reason
why many ancient cultures used meditation
frequently, from preaching to healing and general
well-being. Nowadays, researchers have found
that people who use meditation may be
physiologically younger by 15 years. Meditation
purifies the body and the mind. I didn’t believe in
the benefits of meditation until I tried practicing it
myself. I thought that meditation was overrated
and pointless; after all, you sit on the ground with
your eyes closed, doing nothing, and suddenly you
become this “superhero.”
I was wrong; this is not how meditation works. If
you are curious about meditating and you want to
try it yourself, keep reading! You won’t feel better
after the first, second or third practice. You might
not feel many benefits after the first month
either. You need to be persistent and patient, and
I guarantee you that you will see a great
How to Begin Your Meditation Practice?
Firstly, you need to find a good place to meditate.
One of the best places to meditate is in nature. Go
to the park or the woods and find a spot away
from noise and other people. If you are unable to
find a spot like this, meditating in your house will
work. Just be sure to find somewhere quiet.
2.Sit in a comfortable position.
After you have found the best place for your
meditation practice, it is time to sit as comfortably
as you can. You can sit on a chair or on the
cushion on the floor with your back in an upright
position. It’s very important to hold your back
straight and to feel comfortable and relaxed. It is
better to sit on a chair for the first couple of times
so that you can get used to the feeling of
comfortable and keeps you upright.
3.Set a timer
For beginners, 5 minutes a day is more than
enough. It is better to use a timer, so you don’t
get distracted thinking about the time that has
passed. Set the timer for 5 minutes and forget
about it. You can use your phone’s timer, or you
can download some meditation apps. Find what
suits you the best
4.Close your eyes and relax your hands
Firstly, you will need to close your eyes. For some,
closing them completely is the only choice for
concentrating. Others can focus on their breath
with their eyes slightly open. Once you are ready,
let your hands settle in a comfortable position.
Relax your hands and don’t worry about them.
5.Focus on your breathing
Bring your attention to your breath. At first, your
mind will start wandering a lot. You will feel
helpless to the power of your thoughts; they will
come and go rapidly. This shows you how
distracting yourself with different thoughts and
activities like listening to music, staring at your
phone, conversations with others, and thoughts
about the past and future. When you are alone,
and you try focusing on your breath, you will find
it very difficult to concentrate the first couple of
times; this is completely normal, don’t worry.
However, you must keep focusing on your
breathing. Concentrate on the way your breath
enters and leaves your nose. Feel how the fresh
air enters your body. Imagine that a flow of
energy enters through your breathing.
6.Don’t let your mind wander
This will be hard in the beginning, but again, it’s
completely normal to fail many times with this
step. Try your best to control your mind and to
focus it on the way you are breathing. Don’t judge
yourself if you are unable to do it right. Keep
bringing back your mind to your breathing until
your alarm sounds.
relax and concentrate on your breathing. You
should start meditating for 5 minutes every day.
The best time to meditation is during the morning,
preparing you for the day ahead. If you can’t do it
every morning, you can also do it at night right
before going to bed. After a week try increasing
the length of time you are meditating for. You can
try doing it for 6, 7 or even 10 minutes daily. Find
out what suits you the best.
If you find it difficult to concentrate on your
breath, don’t beat yourself up over it. For some
people, focusing on breathing is difficult to
master. It takes time. I still struggle with it
sometimes, but this won’t discourage me. Keep
trying, be patient and don’t take it too seriously.
