5 Simple Steps For Making Meditation A Habit

Meditation is a beautiful method to relax the mind and body, but difficult to practise regularly. Develop the habit with this 5-step guide.

When we are unaware of our thoughts and urges, which arise in the back of our mind mostly unnoticed, they have a power over us. We are unable to change if these unbidden thoughts control us. "But when we learn to observe them, we can then release their power over us. Meditation is practice for observing those thoughts, for being more mindful of them throughout the day," says San Francisco-based Leo Babauta, a published author and creator of popular wellness blog Zen Habits. He suggests five simple steps for making it a daily ritual:

1. Commit to just two minutes a day: Start simply if you want the habit to stick. You can do it for five minutes if you feel good about it, but all you're committing to is two minutes each day.

2. Pick a time and trigger: Not an exact time of day, but a general time, like morning when you wake up, or during your lunch hour. "The trigger should be something you already do regularly, like drink your first cup of coffee, brush your teeth, have lunch, or arrive home from work," says Babauta. (MORE)

More easier to practice meditation recommend. Please try to collect the mind to be one and concentrate it to focusing at the center of body. Empty mind from all thought, having mindfulness to stand still the mind there, at the center of body.
