Meditation Made Simple

Published by Rebecca Baron on

Meditation is a practice of relaxing the mind, drawing the mind from outward to inward. It is considered a great release from the ever-busy world we participate in. The practice of meditation has been around for thousands of years. In fact, great leaders and celebrities even contribute a lot of their success to the daily practice of meditation. People often find clarity, the answers to “big questions” by simply taking the time to calm the mind and sit without thoughts.

Meditation(v):

1) to engage in contemplation or reflection

2) to engage in mental exercise (such as concentration on one’s breathing or repetition of a mantra) for the purpose of reaching a heightened level of spiritual awareness

Merriam- Webster

Meditation is as simple as you make it

Meditation does not require any special tools, music, or mantras. It’s a simple as finding a quiet place and taking some time exclusively for relaxing the mind. It’s as simple as following these steps:

  • Find a quiet place, ideally a dimly lit room
  • Close your eyes, or light a candle to use as a focal point
  • Set a timer for 15 minutes
  • Inhale for a count of 3, then exhale for a count of 4
  • Repeat the breathwork
  • Allow yourself the time to focus on relaxing the mind
  • Whenever the mind starts to wander, return back to the breathwork.
    • Try to focus only on nothing but the breathwork.
    • Inhale, and exhale. Repeat.

Don’t beat yourself up if you have trouble with thoughts interrupting your session. Thinking about that “to-do list” or remembering to call back that colleague etc, is common. Daily practice over time will help you train your mind and overall improve concentration or focus, which will benefit throughout the day-to-day life.

Start your day with 15 minutes of meditation before even looking at your phone. For an added effect, end of evening off with 15 minutes of relaxing the mind before sleep.

Try setting your intentions for the day, first thing in the morning, and start your day off in a good mood. It will easily transfer throughout the day. Then, when you go to bed, reflect on all the good that happened that day, and then begin your evening meditation in that hightened mood.

Try it for thirty (30) days, and let me know how it works for you!

For the love of food & all that’s good
