Meditation For Beginners: Everything You Need To Know About Meditation

Forget the ‘HOW’. Just DO.

Don’t try to perfect your practice just yet. Make mistakes. You don’t have to do it right. In fact, what you may perceive as wrong meditation might just be the perfect technique. So forget about your posture and your technique. Simply focus on your breath. As long as there is awareness, you are in a meditative state. And that’s all that matters.

When should you meditate

There are no specific rules regarding when you can meditate. You can meditate anytime you feel comfortable and ready. However, try to avoid practicing meditation after eating as it is best to meditate on an empty stomach. The only thing that matters is that you do it regularly and consistently.

If you are still looking for some advice, here are some suggestions that you can follow to start meditating.

Early morning

Early morning is often considered the best time for meditation as your mind is calm and your vibrations are high. Immediately after you wake up, clear your mind and meditate. Then set your intentions and start your day with full energy.

After working out

You can also meditate after exercising. This is also a good idea as your body has released excess energy and tension. It is feeling calm and relaxed physically and mentally. This can help you to meditate easily and reach a calmer state of mind.

Before sleeping

Practicing meditation before going to bed is also a great idea. It will not only help you sleep better, but also uplift your mood after a long tiring day. Meditation before sleeping will help you connect with yourself on a deeper level.

So there you have it. All you will ever need to know as a beginner planning to start meditation. Now that you have a fair idea about what it is and how you need to do it, it’s about time that you get started.

So sit down, close your eyes, breathe and calmly say “Om”.
