Starting something new is unnerving for a lot of people. New things are bound to surprise you and test you. This is why when we start new things, we must be calm, composed, and at ease. One is bound to be uncomfortable in the beginning, but that’s what life is all about. Getting comfortable with being uncomfortable is the key to get ahead and be successful in life.
Often, we are bound to stay in our safety bubble and refuse to explore the opportunities outside. Once we are out, we face difficulties in adapting but we do. It takes time for the mind and body to acclimatize themselves to new situations, and meditation is the only thing that makes the whole process easier.
Meditation will help you stay calm in scenarios of stress. When you’re calm you will be able to handle situations better and in a more efficient way. It allows you to have clarity in terms of your goal, your effort and your result.
Once you’re internally peaceful, you will handle your peers and situations in a much better way than you every used to. A simple example can be the thought processes we have when we are angry and when we are calm. There’s a stark contrast in these thoughts which only goes on to show how we function at an optimal level with a calm mind.
Here are some guidelines that you can follow to enhance and amplify your meditation experience.
STEP 1: Find the right sitting position
The first thing is to find the perfect spot, where you can sit or lie down and be comfortable. Look for a quiet and calm place.
STEP 2: Converse freely with yourself
Shutting off your brain during meditation is a popular myth. When in fact, that’s when you have a frank conversation with yourself without being judgmental or emotional.
STEP 3: Breathe deeply at regular intervals
Deep breathing cleanses your breath and eases concentration. Slow inhalations and exhalations are calming. It is also a great way to relax your tired body.
