What Meditation Is

What Meditation Is

Meditation is being attentive to the fluctuations of your mind. 

Most of the time, we completely identify with our own thoughts, meaning there is no separation between the thoughts and the thinker. Meditation begins to break down this relationship.

If you can sit on the floor, have blankets or a cushion to sit on. 

Assume your seat and close your eyes. Begin to observe your breath without changing it. You can count the breaths if that helps you stay focused on them. 

You can try any position you have seen, but you can also just place your hands in your lap or place the hands on your knees with the palms up or down. Find a position that is comfortable for you.

When you first start, set your timer for five minutes. 

Make sure you pick a time when you can consistently devote yourself to this practice. It doesn't have to be lengthy. Ten or fifteen minutes is a good place to start. 

It should be away from household distractions. A corner of your bedroom or living room is perfect. 

When your timer sounds, open your eyes. 

You may want to do a little warm-up yoga sequence before sitting, especially if you are going to meditate first thing in the morning.
