Meditation Techniques for Beginners

Meditation Techniques for Beginners

If you are not sure how to start meditation, this article provides meditation techniques for beginners and if you want to brush up your skills. I have sourced some great meditations on youtube to hopefully get you started.

I have also provided different ways on how to breathe in a previous article. You can use these whilst you are meditating, which will really help you to relax a lot easier. I have provided five different ones here. There are a lot more but these are quite simple to help get you started.

I recommend that you practice those breathing techniques before you start on these meditations.

I have previously done several articles on Meditation. The first one explained what meditation is and some of the different types of meditation. This was followed by one on the benefits of meditation then I provided 7 ways to help you to start meditating.

The meditation techniques I will be providing here will take you through learning how to meditate. You can start off with the five minute meditation then increase to the ten, then 15, 20. You can increase your time as and when you start to get used to it.

I have also provided different types of meditation including ones specifically for sleep, managing anxiety,a body scan, progressive muscle.

You may want to listen to them with some comfortable headphones that won’t keep falling out.

Also, please remember, in order to get the full benefit of meditation, you really need to be doing this at least five days out of seven days in the week. This way, you will also get used to doing this and start to really feel the benefits from them.

Read my previous article on how to start here, if you have not done so already.

Enjoy!

Hope these videos give you a good idea about what is out there. There is so much available

It’s very important that you understand the major benefits available far outweigh the small cost of time associated with it. For me other major benefit of Meditation is that it is free, it has no side effects, is available to anyone regardless of your social status, time available, life circumstances. It is also a practice that you can start now without no training or experience.

It is available to all of us.
