What is Meditation ?

Studies show that meditation can help reduce stress, enhance self-awareness, foster emotional health, lengthen attention span, and even improve physical health. It’s a simple, free, and remarkably effective tool for creating a calmer, more focused, and happier you.

Getting Started: The Basic Steps

  1. Choose a Peaceful Environment: Find a quiet place where you won't be disturbed for the duration of your meditation session. This could be a secluded room in your house, a peaceful outdoor spot, or even your office with the door closed.

  2. Sit in a Comfortable Position: Depending on your comfort, you can either sit cross-legged, kneel, or sit on a chair. Maintain a posture that allows you to be relaxed yet alert.

  3. Set a Time Limit: If you're just starting, it can be helpful to start with just a few minutes. You can gradually increase this as your comfort with meditation grows.

  4. Focus Your Attention: Concentrate on your breath, its rhythm, how it feels as it enters and leaves your body. Alternatively, you can focus your attention on a word or phrase that you repeat in your mind.

  5. Let Go of Your Thoughts: As you meditate, thoughts will inevitably arise. Rather than interacting with them, observe them impartially and let them go, returning your focus to your breath or chosen object of focus.

Tips for Meditating Well

Start Small: Begin with a few minutes each day, gradually increasing the length as you become more comfortable with the practice.

  1. Be Consistent: Try to meditate at the same time each day to establish a routine. Consistency aids in integrating meditation into your daily routine.

  2. Be Patient: Remember that it's okay if your mind wanders or if it's difficult to focus at first. Like any other skill, meditation takes time to master.

  3. Guided Meditation: Consider using guided meditation apps or videos, particularly if you're new to the practice. They can provide direction and make it easier to get into a calm mental state.


Learning to meditate well is a journey. Like any worthwhile endeavor, it requires commitment, patience, and practice. But the benefits—reduced stress, increased self-awareness, enhanced emotional wellness—are worth the effort. Start slow, be consistent, and with time, meditation may become an invaluable part of your daily life.
