You might have seen people around you remark as to how well meditation is treating them and how well they are able to concentrate after meditation. Many beginners find it very hard to start meditation as they are not aware of the concept and the technique behind this ancient exercise.
The goal of meditation is to make it possible for you to turn your attention towards yourself, far away from the worldly distractions and from the sensations that surround you. There are many benefits of this exercise. So, here are a few ways for beginners to start meditating:
- The Beginning: It is very crucial to be physically comfortable before beginning the exercise. Sit down upright on a mat or a bed. You can also lie down if you feel like. Try wearing loose and comfortable clothes, switch off your cell phone and make sure that you cannot be disturbed by anything while you are meditating. Try relaxing and stretching down a little and start by stating that every part of your body is loose and is relaxed, which also includes your mind.
- Duration: It is recommended to start with smaller durations such as 5-10 minutes in the beginning. Try meditating either once or twice a day and try extending it once you settle down into your own practice. If you plan setting aside sometime for this exercise every day, it is going to be very beneficial for you.
- Breathing: It is important to focus your attention onto your breathing. Feel the air that you inhale and exhale. You can also try by holding down your breath while you inhale and exhale. Try breathing down deep and using your diaphragm in the process.
- Think and Feel: If any thoughts are crossing your mind, do not try stopping them. Just acknowledge those thoughts and allow them to pass through your mind, without dwelling onto them. Return your focus back to your breathing and try struggling with the emotions that you encounter. Deal with all those thoughts without dwelling on their physical manifestations. Try relaxing slowly and deeply.
