Meditation: Tips From A Buddhist Monk

There are many studies and opinions about whether or not meditation is actually good for you. Some people claim that they feel no difference, while others say that meditation has changed their lives forever. But what about those who meditate not just for their health, but as part of their core belief structure?

We were keen to learn some practical tips on meditation from an expert: a Buddhist Monk. There are many ways to meditate, but we wanted it as simple as possible. This is the shortened introductory steps for beginners.

Easy Beginner Steps to Meditation

  1. Sit upright in a comfortable and quiet room
  2. Place your hands on your knees, palms down
  3. Tilt your head slightly down, and relax your eyes
  4. DON’T close your eyes
  5. Relax, focus on your breathing
  6. Have a good intent (i.e. You wish good upon the World, and you will do further good)
  7. DON’T try and clear your mind
  8. Let your thoughts go by
  9. Focus on your breathing, feel the sensation of the air in your nostrils
  10. Bring your attention back to your breathing when your mind starts to wander
  11. Focus on where your feet meets the ground, your bottom on the chair, your back against the backrest
  12. Focus on your breath, and pinpoint if any areas feel tense
  13. Have good intent

Although the above steps sounds simplistic, almost too easy, daily meditation of 10 minutes can have a profound effect on your mental and physical well being. From stress reduction to clarity of mind, the oxytocin which the brain releases during meditation can be a powerful feel good.

Couple your daily meditation with a balanced diet, regular ozone therapy for detoxification, 30 minutes of exercise and you are well on your way to living a healthy life.
