How to make your meditation better

“Meditation is not a way of making your mind quiet. It’s a way of entering into the quiet that’s already there – buried under the 50,000 thoughts the average person thinks every day.”Deepak Chopra

Do you meditate?

If you do you may have run into a number of difficulties while meditating. That’s because while its practice is simple, many people just can’t find that quiet place Deepak Chopra described.

There are lots of things that can interfere with your ability to focus. By controlling these variables you can find it a lot simpler to meditate effectively.

Try these simple tips to make your meditation practice easier:

1. Decrease Distractions

Find a time and place that minimizes your distractions. Make the area electronics free, no TV, radio or cell phone. Keep the outside noise to a minimum by shutting your doors and windows.

• If you’re worried about falling asleep or taking too long, set a timer.

2. Meditate In the Same Place

While you should be able to meditate in a variety of environments, choose one place that works best for you. Associating one location with your practice can make it a lot easier to put yourself in the state of mind needed to meditate.

3. Meditate at the Same Time

Try to keep a consistent schedule. By practicing at the same time each day your body learns to associate that time with your meditation practice. This can trigger your brain to slow down and prepare it for meditation.

4. Don’t Eat Before Meditating

Don’t eat for an hour or two before meditating.

• Digestion requires a lot of energy and eating too much can make you feel lethargic. Meditating on an empty stomach can help you remain alert and focused.

5. Let Go of Tension  

Concentration can make your body tense. In order to meditate you need to be able to relax your body.

• Use progressive relaxation to help you relax your muscles. Start with your feet and slowly move to your head. This will help you stay relaxed throughout your practice.

6. Use Good Posture   

To keep tension at a minimum it’s important to sit in a, relaxed upright position. Slouching or leaning creates uncomfortable muscle tension.

7. Reflect on Your Experiences  

Think about your experiences while meditating and use this feedback to make your practice even better. Keep asking yourself how you can use this feedback to your advantage.
