Meditation is a word that can make people feel intimidated and nervous, but it doesn’t have to be! There are many ways you can meditate and find what works for you. We’ll explore some of the easy steps to meditation and how they work in this blog post. Read on to learn more about meditation and how easy it really is to get started!  All you need is 10 minutes, a set time each day, and an open mind. You never know if this could change your life as well as the lives of those around you.

Find Somewhere Comfortable To Meditate


Humans are designed to be physically active. We may not have naturally-growing trees in our homes or parks nearby, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find somewhere comfortable to meditate. One of the best places to find a space is outdoors!


If you’re unable to find somewhere quiet at home, then try using your bed. It may sound strange, but just laying there and taking deep breaths has been shown to help people focus their thoughts and relax.


If you want to meditate during the day, pick a place where you’re comfortable and won’t be disturbed. Or If it’s too noisy at home or you live with too many people who might walk in on you, then go somewhere else or ask them to give you some time alone.


Similarly, when it’s too bright, turn off any unnecessary lights or use something like an eye mask if that helps. You could also try using earplugs to block out sounds and distractions.


The point of mediation is not about making your surroundings perfect but creating a comfortable environment where you can maintain a peaceful mindset.

Close Your Eyes And Focus On Your Breathing

Closing your eyes and focusing on your breathing to meditate is one of the simplest ways to find calm in a stressful world. You can do this anywhere, anytime, and it’s totally free. This type of meditation is called mindfulness. It requires no special equipment and instead asks you to focus intensely on your breathing – which you can do anywhere that there’s air!


Mindfulness has many benefits, including helping reduce stress, anxiety, depression, and more.

Many people find it helpful to practice mindfulness by counting their breaths. As you breathe in, count “one.” Breathe out and count “two,” breathing in again for a third time before exhaling once more with the number four. Continue this process until you get up to ten – or stop at whichever number is easiest for your mind – and then start over at one.

What’s important is not the number but instead how it helps your overall focus.


Allow All Thoughts To Come And Go Without Judging Them


These easy steps to meditation will focus your breathing and block out any outside distractions or chatter that might be floating around in your mind. 


When you practice mindfulness, you are teaching your body to turn off negative thoughts which allow for more peace and deep thinking. As a result, you’ll find it easier to focus on the present and think clearer than before when you meditate.

You can also clear your mind completely, which is a practice called “emptying” or “breathing space.” This means that you allow anything in your head at that moment – whether it’s good or bad – without judging those thoughts as of right or wrong.


Instead, simply breathe and know that whatever is in your head will pass as you continue to focus on the present moment.

This type of meditation can be practiced at any time – especially if you’re feeling stressed out about something going on in your life!


We hope you enjoyed this post about some easy steps to meditation and how it’s a great way for your mind to rest. You and your child can practice mindfulness easily using these 3 simple steps. It’s simple, free, and best of all – effective at helping reduce stress levels which will then help improve your overall well-being!
