To start mediating alone, find a relaxing spot, sit in a comfortable position, focus on your breathing and be mindful of your thoughts. Commit to three to five minutes of meditating on a regular basis to get into the meditation habit.
Meditation primarily focuses on deep, controlled breathing and an awareness of when the mind wanders. The meditation process is designed to create a more peaceful way of thinking. Replace negative thoughts with positive statements. Focusing on a mantra of idea such as peace, love or strength helps create a peaceful environment.
Not everyone meditates in the same way. Find a meditation routine that works for you. Experimenting with positions, locations and mantras can help you find a meditation practice that leaves you feeling relaxed.
