The ABCs of Meditation for Beginners Explained
Meditation is an esoteric and Ayurvedic (Indian) method of relaxation and stress relief. It can help
you improve sleep, reduce your anxiety, and even boost your creativity to the point of getting more
"Eureka!" moments than you normally would when you're distracted by the problems of life. So
here's the deal when it comes to meditation for beginners. If you want to learn how to meditate but
don't know where to start, then keep on reading. This guide was specifically created with great
care for the sake of offering you a strong meditation practice foundation when all is said and done.
This starter guide will help you gain the tools you need to start meditating like a champ.
How to Meditate 101
The exercise below serves as an excellent way to introduce beginners to meditation techniques.
Be Comfortable as Possible: You should lie or sit comfortably on a cushion or chair. You can
specifically invest in a meditation cushion or chair if you wish. A normal cushion or chair will suffice
though. Afterwards, close your eyes. You can also put in a cooling eye mask or restorative eye
pillow if that helps you better to concentrate on closing your eyes. For the most part, you don't
need these devices and you can close your eyes just fine.
Don't Control Your Breath: You should breathe naturally instead of doing a manual override.
Manually breathing distracts you from your meditation. Instead, you should focus your attention on
your natural breathing and how your body moves with each inhale and exhale. From there, take
note of your body's movement as you breathe. This is what you should be focusing on. Just keep
breathing in and out. Let it "hypnotize" you.
Observe Yourself: Observe how you breathe. Observe how your belly, rib cage, shoulders, and
chest expand then contract with every inhale and exhale. Your focus should be your breath and
you should be an observer of your breath rather than an active participant of your breathing, letting
your reflexes do everything as you objectively and calmly observe what's happening. The
temptation here is to have your mind wander. Don't let it.
Don't Let Your Mind Wander: Concentrate on your breathing without controlling its intensity and
pace. If your mind starts to wander, focus on your breath once more. This is especially true if your
mind is wandering back to the stressor or activity that's giving you pressure and panic attacks.
Just breathe and observe your breathing until you're fully relaxed. Don't worry about the time or
how long this is taking. Let your mind wander during times when you're meditating in order to get
over a writer's block or creative slump though.
Maintain This Meditation Practice: Keep doing this meditation practice or exercise from 2-3
minutes. As you get better at it, try it for longer periods of time. Don't pressure yourself by focusing
on the time instead of your breathing either. Instead, remember that when you're panicked you're
less likely to do what you're supposed to do with a clear head and perfect hand-eye coordination,
so take a minute or two to relax first. Once you're not distracted, you can figure out how to best
approach your problems.
