Meditation is intended to be relaxing, and stimulate your mind by freeing it of thoughts and focusing on tasks ahead. Like everything, there a few tricks and secrets to take meditation to the next level and really help your body reach ultimate chi status.

1. Any Position

Sit comfortably, there is no need to sit in any position which is uncomfortable. According to the Huffington Post, “The lotus position is usually recommended because it helps you stay focused. But you can also meditate while sitting in a chair, laying down, or even standing! Whatever body position you choose, you should feel comfortable and relaxed.”

2. It’s So Simple!

Meditation can be as simple as observing breath patterns and different ways to relax the body. No need to follow a manual since everyone has their own way of relaxing and clearing the mind. Do what suites you best and try to improve and progress with every day of meditation.

3. Back On Track

It is very easy for the mind to loose focus and wander when attempting to think about nothing. Many times, people tend to let their minds run and cannot catch themselves back on track. The best way to recover from this is to focus on breathing and rather than thinking of getting back on track, to just relax.

4. Quick & Simple

Meditation does not have to consume your days or weeks like many stories you may have heard. Sometimes the best meditation can be ones that are simply ten minutes. It’s not about quantity, but the quality of relaxation that is felt. There is no need to sit down for hours, and not focus. It is more useful to get ten great minutes, than an hour of no relaxation.

5. Observe, Enjoy

Observe the change and relaxation the body feels and go with it. Embrace the fact that relaxation is taking place. Not only that, enjoy it and make sure to always perform meditation which is something that is looked forward to doing.
