MEDITATE

A lot of times, meditation can seem difficult to practice. Here are some tips to focus effectively and really gain what mediation has to offer.

-Create the environment and get comfortable. Dim the lights and sit cross-legged or lie down comfortably.

-Focus on your breath. Notice where you feel the inhales and exhales: the nose, chest or belly. Follow the rise and fall of the breath.

-Notice when you’re lost in thought. When you notice your mind trailing off, see if you can shift your attention back to simple in-breaths and out-breaths.

-Treat yourself kindly. How you speak to yourself in that moment when your mind wanders is an essential part of the practice. Be kind. Begin again.
