3 Important Meditation Techniques for Beginners

Meditation is one of the kindest and most relaxing things you can do for your body. If you have just started to approach this art, here are 3 basic meditation tips you can follow.

Meditation masters state that you should meditate at least 15 minutes a day in order to feel the benefits of this practice. For westerners, finding the right time and place can be very difficult, especially if you are a novice. This is a shame, as the benefits of meditation include boosting your immune system, lowering your cholesterol, reducing stress, improving memory and easing chronic pain.

The following are three simple meditation techniques for beginners that you can adopt when starting to practice this relaxing art:

Mindful Meditation

The art of focusing on yourself and ignoring your past and your future, and becoming one with the present. Focus on your emotions, but look at them from afar. Do not judge yourself, place yourself above things.

Breathing Meditation

With this practice, similar to the mindful meditation, you listen to your breathing. Quiet your mind and pay attention to how your breath flows in and out effortlessly. The whole experience must orbit around the process of breathing: do not let your mind wander.

Guided Meditation

The most simple among the meditation techniques for beginners. Just follow what the voice tells you to do, and in time you will learn the method yourself.
