A question on Meditation

6 replies

I have recently been exploring the idea of meditation to help with my focus and concentration.

To those out there that have experience in this, how would you recommend I get started? I have seen a few written guides where it talks through the process, but it seems that I'd need to be relaxing/meditating whilst reading the walk through which seems a bit counter-productive. Would you recommend any audio guides or anything else as an introduction to all this!?

      There are a few forms of meditation. The simplest ones are really about focusing on your breathing while you are someplace quiet. Like a lot of things, people tend to overcomplicate the basic idea and some of the benefit gets lost.

      Perhaps a binaural beat recording might serve you. There are a number of variations on those. The sound itself, the sound with music, the sound with music and voice. Any of those can work to help you relax and be free.

    Simple or easy – depends on you.

    Sit in a quiet place – closing the doors of your room would work fine.

    Close your eyes, leave them just a teeny crack open – else you will fall asleep.

    Think of nothing…
    Say the word…OMMMMMMM

    If you keep that up for 20 minutes a day…

    All the best. Regards.
