That is all fine, but let me just say that EVERYONE CAN MEDITATE.
We just have to find our own way.
Some people love sitting still, focusing on their breathing.
Others go into deep meditation when doing yoga.
Some people find stillness as they stop for a minute in nature, looking at the trees and listening to the wind.
My first tip though, is to decide whether or not you want to meditate.
If you do, then,
Well, perhaps you decide that when you get home Friday evening you spend a few minutes releasing the week.
Perhaps you need to stand, feet on the floor, eyes closed, taking 7 deep breaths before you go into work on Monday morning.
Maybe closing your eyes at your desk everyday after your lunch break, feeling the chair under you and your heart beating in your chest.
Then you can experiment.
Here are some examples for you to try:
Sit down, spine straight, and follow your breath for one minute. Don´t worry of your head is full of thoughts. Just notice, and return to your breath. Next time, do it for two minutes.
Download a meditation app (my favourite is InsightTimes) and choose from the thousands available. They have breath meditations and guided journeys and more.
Put on some soothing music and truly listen. With your whole body. You can move to the music if you want. Practice being present in every movement.
Take a walk in nature. Walk slowly. Feel the ground under your feet. Feel the wind on your face. Listen to the sounds around you.
Look up someone who sings mantras (there are lots on YouTube and Spotify etc.), learn one and sing/chant along for a while. Maybe not too long the first time. It can be difficult to stay focused.
Listen to a guided journey. You can find them in meditations apps, or on YouTube, for example. This helps me stay focused when I feel like sitting down breathing is not for me on some days.
Guided meditations where you go on journeys can be deeply spiritual experiences! So there´s a bonus!
There are so many ways to meditate.
Sit down, chant OM. 1 minute. Done.
The benefits are many. I might talk about them another day.
Some people say that on days when it is difficult to meditate, perhaps that is the best practice!
Who knows. I know that meditation can be truly
I wish you a beautiful time exploring meditation, if that is your choice!
