Starting with meditation can feel overwhelming, but remember, every expert was once a beginner. Today, I'm sharing easy tips to help you begin:
- Choose your space: Designate a quiet, comfortable area for mediation. Decorate your space with elements that make you feel calm & centred, such as candles, plants or a meditation mat.
- Start small: Begin with short sessions of 5-10 minutes & gradually increase the duration.
- Be patient with yourself: It's normal for your mind to wander. Instead of getting frustrated, gently bring your focus back. Consider playing soft instrumental music as it can help you concentrate better.
- Practice regularly: Make meditation a part of your daily routine. Consistency is key to experiencing its profound benefits,
- Bring your meditation to a close: It's important to not finish your meditation suddenly. Just prior to ending your meditation keep your eyes closed, stop repeating the words & just focus on your breathing. Gently open your eyes & stay seated a little longer before getting up.
Remember, the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
