Learn How to Meditate the Easy Way in Less Than 2 Minutes
By Jae Jans
Do you want to learn how to meditate but don't know where to start? When you think of meditation do you think of a guy or girl with their thumb and index finger touching to make a circle, sitting cross-legged on the ground, saying "oooohhhhhmmmm?" If so you'll be thrilled to know that you don't need to fit that stereotype to start enjoying the benefits of meditation. Meditation has many great benefits that will come to you easier the more you practice it. For starters meditation can help you quiet the non-stop noise that goes on in your mind. We don't often stop to think about it, but most of us have millions of thoughts cross our mind every single day.This nonstop traffic in our heads can create stress, cloud our judgment and even affect our health and relationships. Much like physical exercise, meditation exercises the mind and helps us tap into the unlimited potential of our subconscious mind.
Here are a few simple steps to starting meditation:
1. Set a time you can go to a quiet room or outdoor location where you can be in peace of 15-30 minutes for starters without interruption.
2. Sit down comfortably in an upright chair or on the ground and play some relaxing instrumental music to help you relax. Don't be concerned with crossing your legs or doing anything special with your hands.
3. Observe each thought that passes through your head and recognize the many thoughts that are occupying your mind space.
