Your 1st Meditation Exercise





The mind enjoys repetition, and is quick to set up a pattern to follow. When you first begin to meditate you might find your mind wandering, but regular practice will make it progressively easier to settle your mind and reap the benefits of a quiet, relaxed space. Very soon the simple act of lighting a candle, or sitting quietly, will trigger a meditative state very quickly. You will discover that the experience of meditation feels very pleasant - especially if you allow yourself to go with the flow, and do not place high expectations on yourself. Most people need several sessions of meditation before their mind becomes accustomed to slowing down. This is why a regular time and particular place are helpful. After meditation, you will feel relaxed and peaceful, and you should take a few minutes to enjoy this state before resuming activities.

Who Can Benefit From Meditation?

Meditation is perfectly safe and suitable for anyone, even children. To get the most out of meditation, avoid noisy enviroments, and switch off your mobile as sudden loud noises can pull you out of your meditative state making you feel disorientated. You can still meditate safely if you are taking prescribed medication. Avoid alcohol however, as this can affect your ability to maintain focus. Ensure you will not be disturbed by members of your household so that you can fully relax. Set a time limit of 15 - 20 minutes for meditation, and keep to it.
