What Is Meditation?

Meditation is a great way to calm your mind and body. There are many different types of meditation that can be done by both adults and children. Meditation can be practiced in many different ways, but the main goal is to focus on your breath, thoughts, and feelings in order to relax the body and mind.

The most common form of meditation for children is mindfulness exercises. This type of meditation helps kids develop self-awareness and teaches them how to be present in the moment. This type of meditation also helps them with their concentration skills as well as their emotional control.

The best way to start practicing meditation is by taking a few minutes out of your day to practice mindful breathing exercises. This will help you get into the habit of being more mindful throughout your day.

    What Are The Benefits Of Meditation?

    Meditation is a practice that has been around for centuries and it is now being recognised as a form of therapy. It can help children in many ways. It helps them to reduce stress and anxiety, improve their focus, sleep better, and have an improved immune system. Meditation can also help children with ADHD, ADD, autism, and other disorders that affect the brain.

    It can also help people cope with illness and physical injury. Benefits of Meditation include Anxiety, focus, sleep, and improving the immune system. Meditation can also be used as a form of therapy for people who have anxiety or depression. It helps them feel less stressed out by their thoughts, which then lowers their anxiety levels or makes them feel less depressed about themselves or their lives. For me it is a kind of counseling, both meditation and exercise helps reset and release any emotions which may need to be released.

    But how do you start? It’s still a daunting and somewhat abstract concept. So to help you overcome that notion, here’s how to start meditation in 3 easy steps.

      1. Find A Quiet Place

      Meditation can be done anywhere, but it’s certainly easier when you are free from distractions. And that’s especially true for beginners. So find a quiet spot, and if you want to make this a regular practice, try to make it somewhere that you will be able to come to often.

      Now sit down however is comfortable. Don’t lie down though – only because you risk falling asleep if you do!

        2.Set Some Time

        The next step is to set yourself some time out. You can do this by setting a timer – which means you won’t need to keep checking your watch or worry about overshooting and missing some appointments.

        If you’re starting out for the first time, some say ten minutes is more than enough. I personally find that a bit long especially with kids and other things happening. I find putting the timer on my phone to 5 minutes is enough for me, you will need to find what suits you. In all honesty, you can get benefit from just five minutes. This is what many people don’t realize when they make excuses for not starting. We all should be able to find five minutes of quiet in our day. If you cannot, then the issue is more deeply routed than perhaps you realised!

        3. Focus

        Finally, the next step is to focus. That means focussing on something like breathing or perhaps repeating a word or phrase. You can also try focusing on something in the environment around you. A popular practice for instance is to focus on a single flame.

        Then there’s the option to focus on emptying your thoughts, or perhaps focus on reflecting on those thoughts in a dispassionate manner.

        Whatever the case, all you are trying to do is to take conscious control over your attention and direct it towards something that is non-stressful, and that will help you to recover a little energy and mood. That’s all there is to meditation and it’s really rather simple.

        If you’re still struggling, then at this point you may wish to consider using a guided meditation – like something from Headspace or my Youtube Channel. These guided meditations talk you through a script that will help to direct your attention for you.

        Conclusion

        Meditation is a great way to reduce stress and anxiety, improve concentration, and promote calmness. It can also help with chronic pain management and improve sleep quality. I see a big difference when I meditate, my mind is clearer and I can manage challenging situations a lot easier. I highly encourage everyone to give it a good try.
