Meditation For The Mind


Meditation is known to help calm your busy mind and for a person to find inner peace from within. Everyone may meditate in different ways, some sitting on their knees, some sitting Indian style, some with hands relaxed on their knees, and some with palms up. Also, if you are religious you can also add a prayer while you are meditating.

Meditating is something new for me, so to be honest I am learning right along with you. Some advice I have been giving and have also learned from trying on my own are as followed:

1. Try to sit up right and have good posture

2. Relax, but not to the point where you are falling asleep

3. Meditate in a comfortable place in your house or apartment where you feel happy and safe, or if you can go outside to a beach or forest, somewhere that makes you happy.

4. Count your breathes, and count 1 while you inhale, and 2 while you exhale all the way to 4 and then back to 1, repeat.

5. When you have trouble with many thoughts racing through your brain go back to counting your breathes, make this your main focus.

6. If you aren’t use to meditating try it for 5-10 minutes a day, until you are comfortable to do it longer and then you can meditate anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour or more, it’s all up to you. : )

Hopefully my advice can help you find your perfect way of meditation.

Peace and Love,

  1. I meditate every day… with my eyes closed at night – it’s called ‘sleeping’ 🙂
