The first step to meditation is to focus on the breath. The breath and mind work in tandem, so as breath begins to lengthen, brain waves begin to calm and slow down. 1. To begin the meditation, sit comfortably in your chair with your shoulders relaxed and spine tall. In fact, many meditation masters suggest that short practice sessions are the best way to start.
In any case, what everyone agrees on is that consistency is a great help. Like Lao Tzu said, a journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step. The first few times you meditate, try it for a couple of minutes at a time.
When you first start, set your timer for five minutes. If it’s hard for you to stay attentive to the breath for that length of time, work on that before increasing the duration. When you are ready, begin to add one minute to your sitting time. Slowly work up to ten and then twenty minutes. Start with just 5 minutes each day.
Gradually increase the time over several weeks. When I started meditating, five minutes felt like an eternity. I now practice for 30 minutes a day, and sometimes I am surprised at how quickly it passes!
Start by taking a comfortable seat. If you’re flexible, sit cross-legged on the floor, on a meditation cushion, bolster, or blanket—with your knees resting slightly below your hips. If you’re not, sit in a chair with your feet on the floor. Gently close your eyes and begin by taking some deep breaths. Try taking a few cleansing breaths by inhaling slowly through your nose and exhaling out of your mouth.
After a few cleansing breaths, continue breathing at a normal relaxed pace through your nose with your lips gently closed. 4. 1. Start small, with three to five minutes (or less).
Some great new data collected from users of the Lift goal-tracking app* shows that most beginner. Read these steps, make sure you’re somewhere where you can relax into this process, set a timer, and give it a shot: 1) Take a seat Find a place to sit that feels calm and quiet to. Begin by taking a few slow and deep breaths — inhaling with your nose and exhaling from your mouth.
Don’t force your breathing; let it come naturally. The first few intakes of air are likely to be shallow, but as you allow more air to fill your lungs each time, your breaths will gradually become deeper and fuller. In general, the easiest way to begin meditating is by focusing on the breath — an example of one of the most common approaches to meditation: concentration.
