Five Ways To Enhance Your Meditation Practice

I am familiar with meditation practice for six years, but only three years ago, I was able to actually meditate and feel all the benefits that it can bring to one's life. Today, I am sharing them with you:


A lot of people think that meditation is when you sit in a lotus/half-lotus pose with your back strengthened and focus on your breath. In reality, this is only one technique. It is one of the most popular and beneficial, but not the only one. Some people just can’t focus that way, but that does not mean they should give up. Yoga is a meditation, painting is a meditation, and eating is also meditation. The point is to give all your attention to what you are doing.


When you want to practice, it is good to put music on. Sound waves, nature sounds, or any other calming melodies are great for meditation. If you are the one choosing your background noise, it is easier to focus.


If you are at the beginning of your journey, do not feel intimidated by those who practice daily for hours. Don’t push yourself to start with 10 or 20 minutes. Sometimes, you should start with a minute, and that is okay. You can go up as you go. It’s more important to be consistent with your practice than the time.


If you are practicing for a very long time and free materials do not work, maybe consider finding a teacher who can help you get better with your practice. I had help when I started and then I started helping others to meditate. Apply for my mediation coaching package.


Create a space in your house where you will meditate. That will help you be more consistent. I would recommend creating that space outside your bedroom, but if that’s not possible, then at least do not meditate on your bed. You do not need much for a comfortable practice: a pillow is enough. If you'd like, you can add crystals and candles, art pieces or whatever you want to make a place look cozy.  

Meditation is a magical practice that helps you see clarity in chaos no matter what
