How Is It Done?

 

Although it can be a strenuous activity when you start meditating, the truth is that with practice, we will become more familiar with the different techniques and feel more and more comfortable.

 

Although we can find different ways to do it within meditation, most of them carried out in a quiet environment, with a comfortable posture, concentration, and an open and positive attitude. So here we go.

 

  • Put on comfortable clothes and choose a quiet and cozy place.
  • Sit on the floor, or you can sit on a mat to be more comfortable, with your back straight. Breathe deeply and keep your shoulders and arms relaxed and free of tension.
  • Look straight ahead and choose a point to fix your gaze on; try to create positive thoughts, visualize them, and hold them for a few minutes.
  • Concentrate, close your eyes, and breathe properly.
  • Try to increase your daily meditation time progressively. If you start with a 5-minute session (recommended for those who are just beginning), ideally, the next session should be 10 minutes and so on until you reach 30 minutes a day.
