How to Start a Meditation Practice?



One of the most powerful ways to practice meditation on a regular basis is to devise and prepare a regimen that fits your needs, daily schedule, habits, and timing.

The thing about meditation is that you have to be aware of all that happens during your time there. There is an objective and an intent to mindful meditation. Its aim is to assist you in becoming more aware and conscious of what you do.

Here's how you should get started with your own meditation practice,


  1. Begin with a little. Start slowly by meditating for short periods of time, maybe 5-10 minutes a day if you're new to it. With no resistance, you can do something for 5-10 minutes a day, and the time will go by before you know it. When you see how easy it was, it motivates you to keep adding to it. By setting tiny, attainable goals, you will begin to develop the habit of incorporating meditation into your daily routine.
  2. Make use of resources to assist you. There's an app for almost anything these days, including meditation, so why not take advantage of the resources available to you to help you develop a good daily practice? There are several apps that can help you improve your meditation sessions, such as Headspace and Calm, with anything from timers to ambient sounds to help set the mood. Why not if it makes your everyday practice more enjoyable? If you like what you're doing, you're more likely to stick with it.
  3. Make use of YouTube. YouTube guided meditations can be a useful tool, particularly for those who are just starting out on this path. It aids in keeping you on track and on the right track. Some meditations are given on a regular basis, while others, such as Meditation for Focus and Meditation for Sleep, are given depending on your goals. Guided meditations make it much easier for beginners to get into the swing of things and to move in the right direction with their meditation sessions, particularly if they're done alone as a solo activity. It would be comforting to know that you are on the right track.
  4. Make space. This is a critical point. Making room in your home or some other location where you feel at ease is an important part of your practice.
  5. Make a plan for it. Okay, so not everyone enjoys routine and schedules, but if you're new to meditation, this is essential. Make a point of writing it down in your calendar or noting it down in your phone's calendar app. It's simple for other things to take priority over your meditation session during the day, which is why you should set aside time to sit and meditate before the day ends and you remember you didn't get to meditate at all.
