The one morning habit that changed my life – meditationdocx

The Morning Habit That Has Changed My Life –
Meditation can have a very positive effect on
our attitude towards life and may even help
improve the overall quality of our life. I take
time every morning to quiet my mind and
prepare for the day. It soothes my nerves and
helps stave off the stress that inevitably tries to
creep in. Less stress often means more positive
feelings in general. I have found that meditation
has helped my physical health as well; since
practicing regular meditation, I have
experienced less illness and more energy.
Meditation may help lower blood pressure,
improve blood circulation, regulate the heart
and respiratory rates, reduce stress and anxiety,
and promote better overall wellbeing. There is a
variety of meditating techniques. Concentration
meditation focuses on a single point while
mindful meditation is intended to control
wandering thoughts.
Here are a few pointers so that you, too, can
reap the benefits of regular meditation:
1. Choose a Suitable Time
Meditation is intended to be a time of relaxation, so try to choose a time that is
convenient for you and won’t be interrupted. I have found that morning is the
best time for me, before the craziness of the day gets in my way.
2. Find a Peaceful Place
Your meditation area should be peaceful and quiet to allow you to
3. Sit in a Comfortable Posture
Your posture makes a huge difference, so make sure it is proper yet
comfortable. Sit straight with your spine erect and legs crossed, keeping
shoulders and neck relaxed and your eyes closed throughout your session.
4. Meditate on an Empty Stomach
The best time to meditate is before meals because digestion can make you
drowsy; you don't want to fall asleep during your meditation! However, make
sure you are not starving, either; a hungry stomach can be a huge distraction.
5. Start with a Warm-Up Session and Deep Breathing
Warm up exercises will help you achieve better results. Try some small stretches,
brief, 30-second concentration periods, or light a candle or incense, just
something to help prepare your mind for focus. Deep breathing is a great way
to start. Take full, deep breaths. Strive for mindfulness, really concentrating on
each breath as it enters and leaves your body.
3 Meditation Techniques
Now that your body is prepared, there are three different meditation techniques
you can use. Here is a brief introduction to them:
1. Walking Meditation
If sitting for long periods of time doesn't appeal to you, you can try walking
meditation. The goal is to focus on your body while you move. Pay attention to
the swing of your arms and how your legs feel with each step. Feel the breath in
your body and note how your feet rise and touch the ground.
2. Breathing Meditation
In your comfortable position, close your eyes, breathe slowly through your nose,
then hold your breath for a few seconds. Exhale again slowly through your
mouth, trying to make the exhale twice as long as the inhale.
3. Mindfulness Meditation
This requires your mind to be in the moment. Start by focusing on your breath,
then begin to notice other sensations throughout your body.
Meditation has changed my life and my attitude, and I know you will feel the
difference, too. Start out small, just a few minutes a day, and gradually work
your way to more time. The important thing is to be deliberate about making the
time. Your body and mind will thank you!
