A Guide For Your Own Meditation Practice

To start your meditation practice, it’s a good idea to set a routine, even if you are starting with just a few minutes a day. The best way to do that is to choose a good time when you can take a few moments to yourself to find a quiet, relaxing spot (parents, this may even be the bathroom!).

Once you are set up with your time and spot, find a comfortable position to either sit on the floor or in a chair – your eyes will be closed for this.

1. Set Your Intention
Come to your meditation ready to bring yourself relief, to connect, relax, or decompress. Whatever your reason for choosing meditation, this is what you want to come to the practice with.

2. Relax the Body
Once you are seated with your eyes closed, you want to focus on your breath, and how it is coming in and out of the body as you breathe. Move through your body in your mind and take note of any tension or pain. When you come to this area, stop for a moment and focus on sending your breath to that area.

3. Pay Attention to Senses
Keeping your mind focused on the sensations you are feeling is a good way to keep the mind centered, or to keep it from wandering. 

4. Come Back to the Body
If you do find your mind wandering, that’s okay, just keep bringing your thoughts back to your breath until the end of your meditation.

Do not worry if it is not easy at first, the benefits of meditation make it worth it to keep on trying. It does get easier!

  1. Thanks Karen
    I was doing meditation but plan on getting back into it. When I meditate I am a much better listener and focus more. It also makes me more aware of nature and everything. It is wonderful if u keep at it. Love and hugs.
