How to Meditate
I’ll break it down simple:
- Designate a specific time in an uncluttered area, uninhibited by outside stress
- If you are new to meditation, set aside 5 minutes and use a gentle alarm to aid you in proper timing
- Sit on a soft area or lay down with your head and back of your knees supported by pillows
- Allow your eyelids to relax and close if necessary
- Relax your whole body
- Deeply breathe in and allow your stomach to expand
- Briefly pause when you lungs have taken in all the oxygen
- Slowly release your breathe through your mouth
- Focus on the rise and fall of your stomach or the expansion and compression of your lungs
- Disconnect any thought that comes through your mind, but conversely allow it to be okay when it does happen
- Just remember to let it go of any thought as soon as and for however frequent it comes
- When your time is over, take one last deep breath, stretch your body to it’s widest length and gradually ease back into your day.
