-Meditation requires a certain atmosphere and a good amount of time, so make sure that you won’t be interrupted or distracted by anything or anyone. Put on loose-fitting and comfortable clothes. Stretch before you start meditating to prepare your body for it.
-Any kind of meditation is done sitting or lying down. Breathe naturally and focus your attention on your breath and how your body moves each time you inhale and exhale. Don’t let any other thoughts distract you. Be sure to do it at the same time each day so that it becomes habitual more easily.
-All you have to do is focus solely on one thing. Truly focusing your mind on one thing without letting it wander from one point to another takes time and practice. But it brings wonderful inner harmony and a new sense of calm with it.
-Mindfulness meditation encourages you to closely observe all the thoughts that appear in your mind. Your task isn’t to judge them, you just have to acknowledge each and every one of them and be aware of their appearance.
-Mantra meditation basically involves repeating a specific sound, word, or phrase over and over again until you silence your mind and enter a deeper meditative state. “Om” is said to be the first sound heard at the creation of the universe. Om Tat Sat is yet another mantra you may want to memorize.
-Meditation reduces the symptoms of anxiety disorders, such as phobias, social anxiety, and panic attacks, to name a few. Other benefits of meditation that have been confirmed by the scientific community include lower blood pressure and blood cortisol levels as well as improved blood circulation, among others.
