Meditation and its different forms have been

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

difference.

How to Begin Your Meditation Practice?

1 find the appropriate place
1.Find the

appropriate

place

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

relaxation remember find a pose that is both
relaxation. Remember, find a pose that is both

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

polluted your brain is you are constantly
“polluted” your brain is. You are constantly

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.

it s not that complicated is it you just need
It’s not that complicated, is it? You just need to

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.

I will be more than happy to answer your

questions or read your opinions about

mediation. You can also leave me a
