If I tell you that regardless of how much money you are ready to spend for that one thing in your life, the one thing which can’t be bought by any amount in your pocket but just by a simple task of self care in your day… Would you take a step ahead?
What I’m mentioning here is ” peace ” my freinds.
🌸 Peace is not happiness.. It’s not being settled either.. It something so pure and magical and it resides in you.. In each of us.
Today I’m sharing one of my favourite self care practice to achieve that inner peace… peace for mind, body and soul.
You’ve probably heard about it from many people .. It’s MEDITATION.
🌸Meditation is something you learn by yourself.. by practicing and calming yourself on your own.. No other person can help you achieve that inner peace which comes with meditation. Today I’m sharing some of theese simple tips to get you started on this beautiful journey.
Focus on your breathing 💨
So the first thing you need to do before you start meditation is empty your mind.. Just don’t think about anything.. Now this is really hard to do as there is always something going in our mind💭💭.. So a simple trick is to focus on your breathing.. Take deep breath and listen to your breathing… Feel how your diaphragm changes when you breathe in and breathe out and wallaah! you are away from your endless thoughts.
If you really want to connect to a particular thought during you meditation .. pick your music accordingly.. try music with nature sounds like flowing of water.. chirping of birds… wind passing through trees.. Or sound of rain… Theese are some of my favorite… and if you want to take your meditation more on a holy path.. try music with prayers and holy sounds like 🕉 etc. The important point is it should lift your mood.
Now this one totally depends on how you like it. You need to make sure the light setting in the room you are meditating in is not too dark and not too bright. I personally like it a little dim so I draw the curtains when I meditate. Meditation in natural light is the best. 🌞
I believe this is the most important thing while you meditate. In order to feel your body and your breath going down and up, you need to sit properly. I practice sitting down on a mat and crossing my legs with my hands resting on my knees and my eyes closed. You should sit with a back straight.. this helps your whole body to feel lighter rather than straining only one part of your body. When I sit straight I can feel my body stretching upward with each breath.. it’s just a mild stretch.
Hope you find theese tips useful and they inspire you to start self care practices too.
