  • How to Meditate

    Find a quite place to sit or lie down. Make sure you have a timer on your phone or computer and set it for the time you would like to meditate. Remember having a timer set is one less thing for you to think about or pop into your head as you’re meditating.

    Close your eyes and focus on your breathe. Everyone is different and some people like to focus on the feeling just below the nose, others on the rising and falling of the chest or even the stomach as you breathe.

    But to begin with focus on the area just below your nose. Pay attention to the sensation of the flow of the breath in and out and breath in through the nose and out through the mouth.

    When you breathe in count to 1 in your head, when you breathe out count to 2, in count to 3, out count to 4 and so on until you reach 10.

    Once you reach 10 start back at 1 and keep repeating until the timer goes off for the end of your meditation.

    Remember the monkey mind will be busy so when thoughts come into your head acknowledge them and just let them go, move back to focusing on the breathe and counting from 1 to 10.

    A word of caution, come back into the room slowly and don’t get up too quickly. As you get better at meditating you’ll be surprised just how relaxed you get during the meditation.
