It’s time when I’m slow enough to face my fears I have a good look at them and turn them over in my hand.
A great way to build a meditation practice is to start with regular sittings where you focus on the breath. Count with a 1:2 ratio of breathing in and out (i.e. 4 seconds in, 8 seconds out).
Meditation hack: when focused on accurately counting the breath, you will find that it is impossible to think about anything else and it is much easier to let go of outside stress.
You can then start by filling that void with thoughts of gratitude and thankfulness; eventually you will be able to think of less and less in order to just be present in the moment with a sense of gratitude.
Meditation is a vast concept
- What do you do in the evening if you’re too tired to meditate?
- How are different techniques of meditation compatible with each other?
- How can I avoid binge eating?
- What are some tips that help you manage your distracting thoughts while meditating?
- Should a quiet environment be important when I meditate?
- How do you stay focused on meditations when you feel that you could be doing something else instead of being still for 5-10 minutes?
- How many times do you lose focus when meditating?
- How should I begin meditation as a total beginner?
- How do you keep the negative thoughts away?
- I’m a meditation beginner and I found my mind was always distracted by some memories inside my brain whenever I try to focus on my breath’s inhales and exhales. I know it needs time to practice. However, I want to know if there are some meditation skills I missed or something I was doing incorrectly?
