How to Meditate: 7 Simple Steps Meditation for Beginners
In everyday life, meditation is very good at helping you relax, deal with stress better, and handle anxiety situations more easily.
You are now asking yourself:
"How exactly does meditation work? How do I start? What posture should I adopt?
What do I need to pay attention to, and how do I know I'm doing it right?"
7 Simple Steps - How do you learn to meditate?
The Meditation Place Find a quiet and clean place. You should like it and look forward to spending some time there every day. Minimize the objects around you so that you are not disturbed. You can also place a Buddha figure there.
Quiet You should be undisturbed in this place and turn off your cell phone so you won't be disturbed.
The sitting position Make sure you have a warm surface, such as a yoga mat, rug, hard pillow or blanket. Sit in a comfortable upright position, such as cross-legged, or cross your feet for the lotus position. If it hurts, sit on a yoga cushion or stool first.
Posture Keep your torso upright to further open your chest and allow your breath to flow freely. Relax your shoulders and place your hands in your lap like a bowl. Try to keep your body relaxed yet upright.
Check again You can always set an alarm for 7-15 minutes, which is quite enough to start with. Now close your eyes and check your posture, then consciously breathe deeply into your belly and out again. Breathe through your nose and let your lips and shoulders relax. Make sure you feel relaxed overall.
The Meditation Now concentrate completely on your breath. Observe it in such a way that you become free of your thoughts and come into yourself. Notice how the cold air is inhaled and the slightly warmed air is exhaled. Feel your abdominal wall lifting with each inhale and pulling inward with each exhale. This will help you detach from thoughts. When you begin to think again, bring your attention back to the deep breath.
Waking up Take time to wake up slowly so you can carry this feeling into the day. Don't jump up too quickly, but keep the controlled deep breath in your daily routine.
