Meditation. It’s like training your mind to get into focus. This technique will bring positive energy back into the body. But if you’re a beginner, staying focused can be very challenging. You can never sit still in a class while in college, how much more when you try to make yourself think about nothing. The Empty State of mind.
Starting on medication takes a lot of perseverance and willingness on your part. You just need to know the most basic of very important steps in order to be successful in your daily meditation sessions. Here are six things that you can do.
Be as comfortable as you can.
Open your phone timer and get yourself in an upright position. Make sure that your posture is good to avoid discomfort. It would be best if you can get the best meditation cushion to help with your posture and comfort. Dim the lights or turn them completely off. This will help you concentrate better.
Time to Start your Timer.
You can use your phone but just make sure that your music or your phone radio is turned off before you begin. Most phones have a timer, and if you have a smartphone, you can also download a free meditation app. The apps will also help you track and note your progress every day.
Focus on your Breathing.
This is what meditation is. It will make things difficult and worthwhile in just a matter of seconds. You have to close your mouth and focus on your breathing as it enters your nose. However, don’t force your breathing. Breathe naturally and observe how you do it, without thinking too much about it.
Don’t Let Yourself Think and Bring Your Attention Back.
This is where the challenge will start. When we focus on something, we can’t help but start thinking about it. In this part, do not analyze your breath. Just focus on how you breathe without thinking about it. If your mind starts to wander, bring your focus back to your breathing. You may not notice it at first, but when you do bring it slowly back into focus.
When your mind starts to wander again, and surely it will, bring your attention back to your breathing. If your mind thinks that it starts to get boring, bring it back to focus again. Your mind may become restless, but if you discipline yourself to bring it back to focus every time this happens, then you’re doing good. Continue doing this until your timer sounds.
