The best way to start is to stay still and concentrate on your breath. An ancient Zen saying says, “You can sit for 20 minutes a day in meditation — if you are not too busy. The you need to be sitting for an hour.”
JK, It is better to begin with short periods, even five or ten minutes, and expand from there.
Pedram Shojai, author of ‘The Urban Monk’ and editor of Well.org, advises that “sit constantly 20 minutes a day and do it straight for 100 days.”
“Take an extra 2 to 5 minutes to meditate during the day to break the mess, and you will feel the benefits soon.”
Why Meditation is Good
The many advantages of meditation are confirmed by many facts.
Meditation might aid with :
- lower blood pressure
- reduce anxiety
- decrease pain
- ease symptoms of depression
- improve sleep
If meditation effects are anecdotal or empirical, those who practice meditation daily are confident of its benefits in their lives.
There is a meditating activity for you if you want to relieve tension or find divine illumination, find quietness or flow by movement.
Don’t be intimidated to move out and explore new forms outside your comfort zone. It takes always a little trial and mistake before you find the fitting one.
Dessy says: “Meditation is not intended to be coerced. “Then it becomes a chore if we push it. Smooth, daily work finally becomes sustainable, supportive and nice.
You need to open to the possibilities. There are so many diverse types of meditation that you only try a different one whether you’re not functioning or not relaxed.”google-site-verification: googleba07b12246a75ee5.html
