Often people debate if they can start meditating at home or at a local studio. It is recommended to start meditating early in the morning at your highest vibration point. Getting personal quiet time first thing in the morning is beneficial for anyone. This gives the body time to wake up, your mind to become fully aware of its’ surroundings and your senses to come full circle.
Finding time to meditate first thing in the morning assures you allocate a few minutes for your self and it doesn’t get lost in the mix of your busy day. This enables you to be more mindful and ready to take on your daily tasks.
When you start meditating, you should not focus on how you look while you are meditating, but how you feel. Meditating is about focusing on slowing down, focusing on your breathing and finding inner peace.
Pick your meditation space to start meditating
It is important to stay open minded and resourceful when searching for your meditation space. It is helpful to make a commitment to not only practice meditation each morning, but to practice within the same space each day as well. Making meditation a more consistent practice, it becomes a learned habit which turns into your daily routine.
To increase your enjoyment of meditation, it is fun to pick new spaces to practice. Outdoors in the park or on the beach is great to change up your environment. If getting outside is not easy for you, practicing in a quiet room in your house you don’t often use can give you a different perspective while meditating.
Do what works for you when you start meditating
Whether you are sitting cross-legged, straight-legged, standing up or sitting in a chair; as long as you are practicing to meditate you are meditating. Meditation does not involve overthinking your actions or your body. Meditating is about breathing and being present with ones’ self.
Breathe naturally and freely
Meditation is focused on free-thinking and deep breathing. Do not get caught up on focusing on your breath but instead breathe freely with your body so you feel relaxed.
It is helpful to try to avoid thinking about your daily responsibilities so your mind can relax. People who are new to meditation often find trouble with finding their relaxation state.
People often experience restlessness, awkwardness and anxiety while trying to meditate. Irritable and negative impatient behavior emerges which is counterproductive to what meditation is supposed to be.
Instead of trying to fight these emotions, you are better to smile, shrug it off and let your thoughts flow freely so they come and go as they please. Your mind will thank you for recognizing the importance of your relaxation state.
It is clear that being present, meditating and finding your breath can deliver enormous benefits for you. Meditating enables you to take on your day with a clear mind for how you want to live your life. Before you finish your meditation to pursue the rest of your day, envision a clear idea and picture of what you are going to do next to accomplish your goals effectively and efficiently. Be mindful, be present and be relaxed.
