1. Place One Hand On Your Stomach And One Hand On Your Heart
Begin by taking deep, full breaths and feeling your stomach and heart rise in sync with your breath. Find a rhythm.
2. Embrace The Distractions
While I hope you were able to find a “quiet” place, I’m sure it isn’t exactly silent. That’s okay! These noises can actually make your meditation even better. Listen to the noises around you, notice what is going on, but then bring your attention back to your breath and back to the movement of your chest and stomach falling and rising. These noises or distractions are a good thing – they are an opportunity to practice bringing your attention back to what you are doing presently.
3. Enjoy The Process And Do It Often
The great thing about meditation is that there are NO rules – you can meditate however you like, whenever you like, on whatever word or feeling you like. However you do it, let it be a time to calm your mind and be aware of how you are feeling. And just remember – it’s okay to get distracted, it’s okay to lose focus. When you notice your mind slipping off in a different direction simply bring your attention back to your breath.
