Meditation is a simple practice that’s available to anyone, regardless of their background or lifestyle. It’s not about religion or spirituality; it’s about finding peace in your own mind. If you’re curious about meditation but feel like it might be too hard, keep reading.

There are many different ways to meditate, so don’t worry if you’re not sure where to start. This blog post will help you get started with some basic information on how meditation works and how it can benefit your life—without making any religious commitments!

Short meditations you can try wherever you are:

You can practice meditation anywhere. If you are a meditation beginner, try one of following:

  • Breathing meditation: This is the simplest kind of meditation. You simply focus on your breathing as you inhale and exhale, without exerting any effort to change it in any way. If you find yourself thinking about something else, just bring your attention back to your breath.
  • Mindful meditation: This type of meditation involves focusing on thoughts and feelings that arise as a result of whatever activity you’re doing in the present moment, rather than trying to push them away or suppress them (which often leads us right back into thinking about them). It also refers to being aware of our bodies’ sensations instead of focusing only on the external world around us.
  • Body scan meditation: In this kind of exercise, we slowly scan our body from head to toe while being mindful both inside and out; we pay attention not only to our internal states but also how they impact what we feel physically—what’s happening with each part as well as where each part sits relative to everything else around us at any given time.”
    • Body scan meditation is a type of meditation that involves focusing on our body as we walk (or are about to walk) so we’re not distracted by our thoughts. Walking meditation: This involves focusing on your feet and how they feel—the sensation of each muscle, tendon, and bone as you take each step. You should also pay attention to how the rest of the body feels while walking without thinking about anything else other than that moment in time when those feet hit the pavement.

Inhale deeply, then slowly exhale through your nose.

Inhale deeply, then slowly exhale through your nose. Repeat this 5-10 times, and focus on the feeling of air entering and leaving your body. If you notice any thoughts or emotions coming up, just let them pass by without judgment or attachment—just observe them as they appear, then go right back to focusing on your breath.

By the end of this exercise, you should feel a little more grounded in your body, and hopefully a little less stressed out. Remember that meditation doesn’t have to be complicated or difficult; just take five minutes every day to breathe deeply and focus on what’s happening right here, right now.

Close your eyes and smile at the spaces around your eyes.

Now that you’re comfortable, close your eyes and smile at the spaces around your eyes. Breathe deeply and focus your attention on the breath as it flows in and out of your body. Do not try to control your breathing; simply notice how it feels as it flows in and out of you. If thoughts arise, allow them to drift away without judging or analyzing them until they disappear naturally. If you find yourself distracted by something outside of yourself (like a dog barking), gently return to focusing on the breath until being able to calm down again before resuming this practice.

Breathe deeply and focus your attention on the breath as it flows in and out of your body.

Whether you’re in a seated position or lying down, the key to meditation is to breathe deeply and focus your attention on the breath as it flows in and out of your body. Breathe in through your nose, hold for a few moments, then exhale through your mouth. As you do this, imagine that you are breathing in peace and calmness from the universe and breathing out anxiety, stress and other negative feelings from within yourself.

When approaching meditation for beginners first make sure that they have quiet space where they can sit comfortably without distractions like noise or other people around them.

When you have time for a more in-depth practice, try one of these different types of meditation.

While the basic meditation technique is an important place to start, you may want to consider one of the many other types of meditation.

Here are some options:

  • Guided meditation
  • Transcendental meditation (TM)
  • Loving-kindness meditation (LKM)
  • Centered meditations, which can be adapted for individual needs and preferences

The benefits of meditation are varied and profound, but the practice itself is relatively simple. There are many ways to meditate, but the basic steps involve: Find a quiet place where you won’t be disturbed. Sit in a comfortable position with your hands on your lap and your back straight (this can be done lying down as well). Close your eyes if that helps you to relax. Focus attention on breathing or other sensations, such as feeling tingles across the skin.

What is meditation? Meditation is a mental exercise that involves sitting with your eyes closed, focusing on breathing or other sensations, and thinking about only one thing. Its goal is to help you relax and reduce stress.

It’s important to note that meditation is not a form of therapy. It may help you cope with the symptoms of an illness, but it will not cure your illness.


This is just the beginning of a journey that will teach you to calm down and be mindful. If you’re a beginner, don’t worry about getting it all right. Just remember to breathe deeply, smile if you can and try not to judge yourself. The more time you spend on this path, the better results will come from it!
