Successful meditation can be an elusive goal. Some quit before they ever really get the full benefits of meditation. Others never harness the full potential of meditation. However, no matter what level of expertise you are at in your practice, here are three specific things that you can do to ensure that the time that you spend meditating is useful.

Key #1 How you Set Up Your Environment

A scrambled, confused meditation spot encourages scrambled confused meditation. Of course this is the obvious tip, but if your meditation is not yielding the benefits that you want, this is the first place to look. Creating a good environment for meditating includes visual, kinesthetic as well as auditory considerations.

Often, beginners only focus on the visual space for their meditation place. Pay attention to the other senses, such as where you will be sitting, the temperature, as well as the clothing that you are wearing. If you give little thought to what you will be sitting on, you may find yourself distracted by feeling uncomfortable, or even in pain.

A person choosing a spot that is prone to noise pollution may feel disgusted that a great session was brought to a halt by a car horn honking at the worst moment. For parents, nothing breaks a great meditation session like a knock on the door. Spend the time to create a special space for yourself and successful meditation will become much easier.

Key #2 Breathing Effectively

Don’t get obsessed with you technique in breathing. Nothing ruins a meditation session like stressing out that your breathing isn’t perfect. Obviously, you don’t want to walk away more stressed than when you started! In the crazy, everyday life, paying attention to something as simple as breathing is not done.

Meditation is your time to notice the act that keeps you alive every second.

Meditation experts are skilled at focusing on breathing naturally. They know how to feel each breath come into the body and they feel the breath move out.

Key #3 Working With Your Thoughts

Not all types of meditation require you to have an mind empty of all thought. Becoming a blank screen isn’t for everyone. Work with your thoughts. If you notice what you notice about what thoughts pop up into your mind, you’ll find that soon the thoughts come slower, as your mind comes to appreciate the time you are taking for yourself. Often, just giving yourself time to talk to yourself is beneficial for the beginner.
