HOW TO PRACTISE MEDITATION

Meditation is simple and easy and is one the finest ways to de-stress yourself and to relax your body and mind. It is not a complicated technique and just requires a little practise and a quiet corner in your home.

The first step is to sit down in a comfortable spot, preferably cross legged on the floor. If you want to sit on a chair go ahead and do so. You need to be relaxed through the entire process, so be comfortable wherever you are.

Close your eyes and try to stop thinking about anything at all. If thoughts do come let them go away and gradually you will find that fewer and fewer thoughts come in, and there are more and more quiet spaces in your mind.

Pay attention to your breathing. Let it be normal, but just imagine that with each outgoing breath you are breathing out all the disturbing thoughts and you are breathing in peace and harmony. Gradually you will realise that your breathing has become slower and gentler and that your body is much more relaxed.

Give yourself time – initially do this only for a few minutes every day. The important thing is to clear your mind, concentrate only on your breathing. Thoughts will come and go – do not pay too much attention to them.

When you open your eyes after a few minutes, you will find yourself at peace, relaxed and contented. Do this regularly, and soon stress will cease to be a part of your daily life.
