Meditation is a technique that allows the mind to be brought to a state of calm and relaxation, through methods that include postures and focus of attention to achieve tranquility and inner peace. Next we want to show you 3 steps to start meditation
First step: Reserve time for meditating
You should reserve 1 or 2 moments throughout the day to disconnect for a while. It can be when you wake up to allow you to start the day with less anxiety and more attention. At noon, to rest a little from tasks, or when you go to sleep, to calm your mind before sleeping.
Ideally, 15 to 20 minutes is an excellent time to get the maximum benefits of meditation. Although, 5 minutes is enough to allow a journey within, achieving calmness and focus.
Find a quiet place
It is recommended to have a space where you can sit with a bit of tranquility, such as a living room, garden, sofa, it is also possible in a chair, or even in the car after parking before going to work, for example.
The important thing is that you can be, preferably, in a quiet environment and with a minimum of distractions to facilitate concentration.
Learning to pay special attention to breathing and using the lungs entirely is essential. A deep breath should be taken, pushing the air out using the belly and chest and a slow, pleasant expansion.
Breath control may not be easy to start with, which happens with practice, but it must be comfortable and without forcing it so that it does not become an unpleasant moment. An exercise that can be done is to count four on the inhalation and repeat this time for the exhalation.
