I am pleased to add another guest post. Please check out Odette Cecilia’s lovely website.
Are you a fan of meditation, yoga, and spiritual studies? If you are one of those fitness freaks who takes your daily exercise ritual as something quite serious, then you should never ignore the importance of adding meditation techniques to your daily exercise regime. Ultimately, you will find a sense of well-being and happiness through this practice and experience more synchronicity and positive feelings.
Developing the right kind of meditation practice requires some effort. You must determine what your body wants and what it requires.
In other words, determine your personal mantra in order to receive the maximum benefits from your meditation ritual. Once you start this practice, you will feel more comfortable and vibrant inside out.
Here are 6 smart ways to help you master the art of meditation.
- Find A Corner:
The most important aspect of a successful meditation experience is to find a perfect spot in your home. This can be your room, a guest room, another place in your home, or even outside with least amount of disturbances.
If you are unable to sit on the floor, you can use a chair or even a sofa. Sit in an upright position and enjoy a solitary, confined aura of complete bliss.
- Take Deep Breaths:
Once you have adjusted yourself in your favorite spot and you are ready to start with your meditation practice, make sure that you take few deep breaths to let your body come into a zone of peace or bliss.
Close your eyes, focus on something that makes you happy. Take few deep breaths to let go of any negative thoughts holding you back.
- Free Your Mind:
Don’t restrict your thoughts as you set off with your daily meditation routine. Let your thoughts go free, thus, setting your mind at peace with itself.
Since it is human nature to let the thoughts wander, freeing your mind from any kind of negative vibe is as important as exercise is to the whole body.
- Begin Slowly:
Meditation is also considered to be a form of exercise. Therefore, while you begin adding meditation to your daily routine, make sure that you start off slowly and steadily. Give it a good 20-25 minutes on the first day to create peace within your mind and body.
In this way, you can easily give yourself ample time to become well-adjusted with the routine. Also, you can take time out for other chores as well.
- Be An Early Bird:
As per the experts, the best time to meditate is the early morning when there is peace and calmness all around. Mother Nature is at her very best at this time.
Not only will practicing meditation the first thing in the morning keep you refreshed the whole day, it will also ensure a healthy mind and body in the long run, and your overall health will improve.
- Set Your Mantra:
Meditation is much more than a regular exercise regime. It can help you to embark on a spiritual journey that will give you the ultimate experience of staying fit and close to God at the same time.
Moreover, setting up your mantra for life will give you a purposeful approach towards your daily activities and help you to perform better in life.
Odette Cecilia, originally from Venezuela, learned intuitively to meditate through creative visualization. Her depth of spirit led to her interest in and love of the healing arts, and most specifically, the use of sound frequencies and music to enhance spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical well-being in others.
