In the face paced life of today it is good to take time out and relax. Many people find this quite difficult and as a result turn to meditation to help them. Here for anyone who would like to meditate are some simple steps for anyone to learn how to meditate.

Firstly set aside some time to meditate. You can’t do this productively unless you have enough time. Choose a place to meditate where you will not be disturbed. Turn off all distractions (although some people like to put restful music on quietly in the background) and relax. Sit on the ground, if this feels uncomfortable sit on a cushion.

Don’t close your eyes. Try to keep them half closed and don’t focus directly at anything as this will only break your concentration. Start to take slow, deep breaths – do this from your abdomen and not your chest. Try making each intake of breath last for a 3 count and each exhale last for a 6 count. Do this for up to 15 minutes for the best results, although you might wish to continue for longer.

Relax every single part of your body, including the muscles. This might take some time but don’t be tempted to rush this step. Try to clear your mind of thoughts by not focusing on anything. This can be hard to achieve at first but with practice it comes. Try repeating a mantra or word such as ‘aum’ over and over as this will help to clear your mind.

The final step is achieving total meditation. This can take some time to perfect. It happens when you are able to fully clear your mind of any thoughts or worries. When this happens you are at the peak of meditation. Now you know how to meditate try it out and relax a little.
