Choose The Right Time And Place You should only do meditation when you are completely free and comfortable. This means that you should complete all tasks of the day before sitting down for meditation. Additionally, you ought to choose the time when no one can disturb you, and when you have nothing to worry about. The best time to do meditation is in the early morning, at sunset, or before bedtime. You should also choose a peaceful and quite place to meditate so that your meditation can be enjoyable and relaxing. Not only should you do meditation at the same time, but also in the same place every day to establish consistency. 2. Wear Comfortable Clothes When you meditate, you should wear comfortable clothes so that they will not badly affect your feeling. Loose clothing is recommended for meditation. If you wear tight clothes, your skin cannot breathe well, and you may find it hard to focus on meditation practice. Remember to take off your shoes no matter how soft they are. 3. Commit To Meditating Long Enough You may find it hard to do meditation at the beginning as your legs could be hurt. However, you should not give it up in frustration. The beginning is always the hardest time. Meditation requires patience, consistency, and determination. Therefore, you should spend at least half an hour doing meditation every day. 4. Do Physical Warm Ups Warming up helps you be ready for meditating in a long period of time. This is one of the helpful techniques on how to meditate properly. 5. Sit Straightly But Comfortably Your posture affects your progress in meditation, so you should be relaxed, comfortable, and steady during meditation time. Remember to sit with your straight spine, relaxing shoulders and neck. Your hands should be upward, and put at the joint between the thighs and torso. 6. Pay Attention To Your Breath Paying attention to your breath is the right way to anchor yourself in meditation. Do not regulate your breath. Inhale slowly and count to eight, hold the breath until you finish eight more counts. After that, exhale slowly while counting to eight. Without a pause, inhale again, then hold, and exhale. Doing this again and again helps steady the breath rhythm and get peace of mind. 7. Associate With Spiritual People You should join a group of spiritual people to meditate regularly. If you do meditation alone, you may give up easily when your legs are hurt or your emotion is not good. Joining a weekly group is a must if you are serious about meditation. 8. Silence Silence is one of the important meditation techniques. However, some types of meditation allow music, but music for meditation only. Being in silence, you will know more about your mind, for example what it is doing. Sitting in silence can bring you calmness and steadiness.
