There are many benefits to regular meditation. It only takes a few minutes a day and once it is embodied into the daily routine, meditation becomes the best part of your day! Think of meditation like a seed when you nurture the seed with time, attention, and love it blooms into a beautiful flower. Meditation allows you to pause and refresh, and recharge your day. So if you want to dive deep into yourself and enrich your life follow these steps.
1: Posture, make sure your spine is upright with your head up. If your body is well-balanced, your mind will also be in balance.
2. Keep your eyes open, and at a low soft gaze. (closing your eyes may make it easy for you fall asleep).
3: Focus, when you first begin it may be hard to focus so start by concentrating on your breaths, take a deep breath and focus as it enters and exits. When your focus or thoughts shifts gently bring them back to your breathing. (don't try to stop your thoughts let them pass and softly refocus on your breathing.
4: Silence is a gift, there is a steadiness and calmness that comes from sitting in silence, allowing you to experience what the mind is doing.
5: Time, Start with 5 or 10 minutes and sit longer if you feel the length is too short. In time you will become comfortable but do not force yourself to sit longer if you are not ready. Do What feels Right!
