3 Ways to Begin a Meditation Practice

Begin a Meditation Practice

When you begin a meditation practice and maintain a meditation practice, it can have many benefits. People that meditate regularly have reported reduced stress, increased self-awareness and an overall improvement in emotional health. Starting a meditation practice can be daunting.

3 Ways to Begin a Meditation Practice

  1. Start Small. If you are just beginning, it will probably be difficult to find the time or attention to sit still for a long period of time. Start with 5 minutes, or even 2 or 3 minutes if sitting still is very difficult. Set a timer with a soft, pleasant noise and practice being still and observing your thoughts for a few minutes.
  2. Don’t Go It Alone. Meditation has grown in popularity, and so have the resources devoted to it. Try an app on your smartphone with preset meditations. You will learn lots of techniques and be able to find one that works well for you.
  3. Set Yourself Up for Success. Find a quiet space to meditate, and make sure you are comfortable. Minimizing distractions will help you to quiet your mind and will signal to your mind and body that your meditation time is yours alone. Let family members know that you will be meditating and for how long, and ask them to ensure your attention is not needed during that time. Maybe they will join you!
