The choice of place is one of the keys to getting a sense of calm in meditation, here, Beauties. Choose a place that is quiet, calm, and of course gives a sense of comfort. A corner of a room or garden with lots of shady plants can be a comfortable place to start meditation.
Looking for a Comfortable Sitting Position
Beauties, for those of you who are beginners, the sitting position that is done in meditation is a cross-legged position called Sukasana. In addition, you can use additional media to get a comfortable sitting position for the spine by using yoga blocks. Or if you don’t have one you can use a pillow. One thing to note in the sitting position in meditation is that the spine must be completely straight.
After getting a comfortable sitting position, one more thing to note is the position of the hands. Reported from Very Well MindThere are various hand positions in yoga called mudras. As a beginner, you can place your palms up or down on your lap.
Breath and Mind Exercises
The practice of cultivating the breath and mind is the essence of meditation. That way, the peace and comfort that you dream of will be achieved. Reported from Very Well MindAfter getting a comfortable sitting position with your eyes closed, the next step is to start observing your breath and take a deep breath slowly.
Then focus on each inhalation and exhalation. If needed, you can count your breaths to help improve focus. Next, if you feel your mind is distracted, try to imagine it floating before returning to focus on your breath.
When you’re done, take a few moments to feel how you feel and think after the meditation. If you feel stiff after sitting down, you can do some stretching movements slowly.
So, those were some preparations and ways to do meditation to make life more calm. Good luck, Beauties!
