8 Tips to Get Started with Meditation

#1 Choose a convenient time

Meditation is essentially relaxation time, so it should be done entirely at your convenience. So, after the meditation you do right now, for the subsiquent meditations, choose a time when you know you are not likely to be disturbed and are free to relax and enjoy.

#2 Choose a quiet place

Just like a convenient hour, choose a place where you not likely to be disturbed. Quiet and peaceful surroundings can make the meditation experience more enjoyable and relaxing.

#3 Sit comfortably

Your posture makes a difference too. Make sure you are relaxed, comfortable and steady.Sit straight with your spine erect; keep your shoulders and neck relaxed, and eyes closed throughout the process.

#4 Keep a relatively empty stomach

A good time to meditate is before having a meal. After food, you might doze off while meditating. However, do not force yourself to meditate when you are very hungry.

#5 Start with a few warm-ups

A few warm-up or sukshma yoga exercises before sitting to meditate helps improve circulation, removes inertia and restlessness and makes the body feel lighter.

#6 Take a few deep breaths

This is again preparation for easy meditation. Deep breathing in and out as well as doing some nadi shodhan pranayama before meditating is always a good idea.

#7 Keep a gentle smile on your face

You will see the difference.A gentle smile throughout keeps you relaxed, peaceful and enhances your meditation experience.

#8 Open your eyes slowly and gently

As you come close to the end of the meditation, don't be in a hurry to open your eyes and start moving about. Open your eyes slowly and gradually and take time to become aware of yourself and your surroundings.
