Meditation Secrets

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.

Meditation Tips For Beginners

Starting anything new can always be tough and intimidating. Remember your first day of high school? How scary that probably was, but eventually you learned some tricks of the trade to get you by day to day. Getting use to little things like working out and even meditation can be scary. Not knowing if you are doing is working or are performing correctly. Let’s focus on meditation and some simple tips to get beginners on the right path of mediation.

1. Habit

With anything to be done, it is important to make a habit. Making sure you are taking time out of a busy schedule to meditate. There is no reason to skip any days if you make it a habit daily.

2. Time

Time is of upmost importance when meditating. Making sure there are zero distractions around and being able to focus and clear your mind. A great meditation session comes when there are no distractions or children running around, just to name an example. If you only plan to meditate for ten minutes, make sure those ten minutes count.

3. Size

To piggyback of tip #2, if you are only meditating for a certain amount, make that amount count. Unlike stories heard in the past, meditate to what works best for your schedule, no matter how long or short it may be. As long as the time allotted to meditating is truly focused. There is no need to force yourself to meditate if you cannot truly lose yourself in deep thought and breathing.

4. Position

Unlike to pictures you may see, to meditate you do not have to sit in pretzel style. Although, this position helps most people focus, it is important to sit in a comfortable position which best suites your needs. Even if that means laying down on your back or doing a handstand. Whatever is most comfortable.

5. Breath

Most important tip is breathing. Deep, long breaths are key to relaxation. Many may not notice, but throughout everyday, not many focus on their breathes. Taking time to focus on this important aspect of your life can show changes in a very short amount of time.
