Meditation is an ancient technique of focusing and enhancing your inner self and visualizing your positive attributes. It helps to create a sense of calm and inner harmony.
As we all are battling with stress due to pandemic and our busy schedules, meditation will help find peace and prosperity.
To begin with meditating, find a peaceful place to sit comfortably. Place your mat on the floor, then sit in a relaxed position, close your eyes and take a deep breath for a few minutes. Your mind would be full of thoughts at that time and that is fine, it is natural. Play some soothing audio to feel at peace. Focus on your audio and try to stop yourself from thinking anything.
If you are unable to focus, play some mantra and chant that mantra. It will help you to focus on that particular thing and unnecessary thoughts will be controlled.
Practice this for 10-15 minutes twice a day, in morning and in evening and gradually you will be able to concentrate on meditation and thoughts will fade away.
The benefits of meditation come when you practice it religiously and not occasionally. You have to keep patience to see the results.
