With the hectic pace and demands of modern life, many people feel stressed and over-worked. It often feels like there is just not enough time in the day to get everything done. Our stress and tiredness make us unhappy, impatient and frustrated. It can even affect our health.
But did you know by spending just a little time preparing for your meditation, you can actually have a deeper experience ? The purpose of meditation is to make our mind calm and peaceful. By training in meditation, we create an inner space and clarity that enables us to control our mind.
Follow these mediation techniques for a clear, calm mind:
- Choose a convenient time
- Choose a Quiet Place
- Sit in a Comfortable Posture
- Keep a Relatively Empty Stomach
- Start With a Few Warm-ups
- Take a Few Deep Breaths
- Keep a Gentle Smile on Your Face
- Open Your Eyes Slowly and Gently
This may sound unpopular but the first 10 minutes is what it takes to “warm-up” a beginner’s mind for meditation. Your mind needs time to slow down the thoughts and calm down the jumble of emotions you’re experiencing.
When you are meditating for at least 15 minutes per session, that’s when you will start to see progress in your meditation journey.
