Meditation has been practiced in many cultures around the world since ancient times. Even though some people feel that it is not necessary to do meditation, but understand that just as exercise and a balanced diet are necessary for the body, it is equally important to meditate.

5 Tips to Meditate Easily

Tip 1 : Practice Slowly
If you are thinking that as soon as you start meditation, your mind will be completely relaxed and you will not get negative thoughts, then you are wrong. It takes time for anything to happen. When you meditate, try to calm your mind slowly. On the first day of meditation, you should meditate for 5 to 10 minutes. Gradually you can increase this time from half an hour to 1 hour.

Tip 2 : Focus on Your Breath
If you have a complaint of distractions like when you sit to meditate, even after focusing, your attention wanders here and there, then try a trick. While meditating, pay attention to your breath. Focus on how your breath is going in and out. Notice and focus on where this breath is coming from in the body and then where it is going. When you contemplate these things, your mind will be completely focused.

Tip 3 : Take Long Breaths
While meditating, take long breaths in between. During this, when you inhale, your stomach will turn inwards. Then release the breath slowly. This will increase your active imagination and meditation quality.

Tip 4 : Feel Comfortable while Meditating
It is not necessary that you have to do meditation only while seating. If you want, you can also do meditation while lying in yoga nidra. But yes, during this time pay attention to your body posture and energy. If you are facing any kind of problem then take some break and start again. Making a mistake during meditation can cause harm instead of benefit.

Tip 5 : Meditate Daily
Some people prefer to meditate for 45 minutes one day a week instead of daily meditation. Whereas experts say that meditating for 5 to 10 minutes a day is more beneficial than meditating for 45 minutes a week.
