By witnessing your thoughts and emotions, eventually your mind will be calm.
Tips for meditation:
-set a time to practice
-practice prior to eating to avoid the distraction of digestion
-start with 10-15 minutes and build gradually
-find a clean, quiet and well ventilated area to designate for your practice
-wear comfortable clothing, layering to adjust for temperature
*be compassion toward yourself - acceptance for where you are in your practice today
Try using a meditation cushion or pillow to raise your hips off the ground. Sitting for long periods of time without proper spinal alignment can cause back pain and discourage you from taking the time for yourself to meditate. Visit the Yoga Creations Store for more information on cushions!
