Most people know that meditation when practiced daily (even for just 10 minutes) can greatly benefit one’s overall health and well being. The trick, however, isn’t to find the right way to practice, but rather to practice anything that helps you to cultivate that internal relationship with self on a regular basis.
NancyAnn Rella, for the Wausau Daily Herald, gives us five quick and easy meditation tips (courtesy of The Mayo Clinic) to help anyone frame up a solid and practical meditation practice. Top on the list? Finding a practice that you can fit easily into your lifestyle.
- Select a meditation technique that fits your lifestyle and belief system. Many people build meditation into their daily routine.
- Set aside some time. Start with five-minute meditation sessions once or twice a day and work up to 20 minutes each time.
- Keep trying. Be kind to yourself as you get started. If you’re meditating and your attention wanders, slowly return to the object, sensation or movement you’re focusing on.
- Make meditation part of your life. Many people prefer to start and end their day with a period of meditation. Others prefer to take meditation breaks during the day. Experiment and find out what works best for you.
