Meditation for Beginners – Where to Start

Meditation for Beginners

If you are a beginner and have never meditated before or only a couple of times, you may not know where to start or if you are doing it right. There are so many different types of meditation and it can be difficult to know which one would be great for you.

What is Your Goal with Meditation?

Think about what you want to achieve from your meditation practice. Do your want to improve your health, or do you want to connect with your spirituality. Maybe you want to learn to focus or maybe you want to become more positive. No matter what your goal is, there are different meditations that can help you achieve it. But the first type of meditation you should learn is the basic breathing exercise. This is an easy but important type of meditation that you will use in any type of meditation but can also be practiced alone.

In breathing meditation you will have to focus on your breath and only on your breath and in that way still your mind. But in the beginning it may be difficult not to get distracted by your own thoughts trying to steal your attention. But as anything else, it takes practice. But luckily the progress is quite fast and you will be able to see your own development after only a couple of day's meditation. Of course when you make it a habit and practice daily, you will really be able to feel the benefits of meditation and hopefully reach your goal.

When you start to meditate, it is important to remember to stay relaxed through the whole meditation. You also have to meditate on a regular basis to really be able to feel the many benefits there is with meditation. So try to make it a habit and part of your daily routine. A good way to do that is to practice your meditation the same time ever day such as in the morning before you start your day or evening before going to sleep. So choose a time for your meditation where you are able to get 15 minutes undisturbed practice.

For beginners, and trained as well, it can be very helpful to listen to meditation audio recordings that can guide you through the practice. Listening to music and nature sounds can also help you relax and find peace.

So start your meditation practice and see how your life and health improves.
