First of all, you should know how to do meditation?
Meditation is a very simple practice, but people usually thought it’s a complicated process. You don’t need much efforts to meditate. There are very simple steps for doing it and these are given as follows
Something To Sit
Basically, there are three options for sitting on during the meditation.
- A Meditation Cushion (commonly used)
- A Chair
- A Meditation Bench
They are the most popular thing which people use to sit on while doing meditation. The best thing about this cushion is it’s comfortable.
In our opinion, the sitting position is best for meditation as it increases the concentration power.
You can purchase meditation cushion and it is easily available in the market.
We prefer homemade cushions as they are comfortable and cheap. You can make it according to your requirement.
If you have back problems then you should use meditation chairs.
If you have just started doing meditation, then start with these chairs as they will help you to do the practice with ease.
If you find meditation cushion too uncomfortable then it’s important to give a try to meditation bench.
These benches are beneficial as they can absorb a lot of the weight and you can acquire as much as space, which makes the practice more comfortable.
How to Sit
The second important thing of meditation is the sitting position. You just need to keep following things in your mind:
One of the important thing to remember is, keep your back straight
Your eyes can be closed or open: If you find it difficult to close your eyes then you can open your eyes during meditation as you just need to gaze softly on the floor or in front of you. But generally, it is preferred that you should keep your eyes closed.
Hands Position: You don’t need to worry about your hand position as you can rest your hand on your legs. Some people also form circles with their thumb and another finger, but it’s not important. Keep your hands anywhere which you feel comfortable.
Legs Position: We prefer to choose cross-legged pose, as it works fine for most of the people. If you want to keep it easy then it is the best option.
What to do
Get Comfortable: Set a timer on your phone, and place it into a comfortable posture. Dim the lights or shut them off in order to help you focus better.
Start Your Timer: Start the timer on the phone.

Don’t Think: This is the tough step. Bring your attention to your breath and try to feel it.Don’t become hard on yourself during this step. Keep doing it until your timer sounds.
