Start with short sessions
It's better to start with shorter sessions, such as 5-10 minutes, and gradually increase the time as you become more comfortable with the practice.
Find a quiet space.
Choose a quiet space where you won't be disturbed and sit in a comfortable position. You can sit cross-legged on a cushion, a chair or on the floor, whatever is comfortable for you.
Focus on the breath
Start by focusing on your breath, noticing the sensation of air moving in and out of your body.
Observe your thoughts
Instead than attempting to stop your thoughts, simply acknowledge them and let them pass without comment.
To create a routine and develop a habit, try to meditate at the same time each day.
There are many different styles of meditation, including body scan, loving-kindness, and mindfulness.
If you've never meditated before, you might want to consider attending a class or looking online for a guided meditation to get you started.
Don't give up on meditation if you don't see any immediate benefits; it takes time and effort.
Keep an Open Mind
Everyone has a varied experience with meditation because it is a personal practise.
