Thousands of years ago, meditation derived from Hinduism and Buddhism culture. It was formerly about the practice of understanding mystical and spiritual forces, the meaning of life, and the focus on the individual’s behaviour. Nowadays, instead of using meditation for spiritual or religious practice, people generally meditate for the mind and physical relaxation, stress reduction, healing of illness, and overall health improvement. Meditation is now recognized worldwide as a form of complementary medicine for the mind and physical well-being.

How to meditate as a beginner?

Before you start your first meditation session, you should be at a place where you can relax into the following process:

  1. Find a quiet and calm place to sit or lie comfortably. Ensure you are stable in the position for a while.
  2. Close your eyes. Take deep breaths through your nose. Relax your body tension when you breathe out.
  3. Focus on your breaths but do not control your pace or intensity. Breathe in and out naturally, and notice how your breaths move in and out of your body each time. Notice how your body reacts and changes when you breathe. Observe your chest, shoulders and belly.
  4. After a few minutes, your mind might no longer focus on the breaths and start to wander. It is normal. Simply return your attention to how you are breathing. Do not obsess over the thoughts or let yourself lost in them.
  5. Gently open your eyes when you are ready. Take a moment to sense the environment around you. Listen to the sounds and feel the breeze. Also, notice how your body and emotion feel at the moment.

You do not need to have meditation in longer periods, but rather maintain the practice for 2-3 minutes to start. A few minutes of meditation every day will bring you lots of positive results. It is about persistence and enjoying peaceful moments.

Different types of meditation

Meditation is the term for different types of relaxation and meditation techniques. However, the goal is the same regardless of which approach you are choosing. They all help you to achieve inner peace. The following are some different types of meditation:

  • Guided meditation. It is the process of imagining and forming mental images of places you find relaxing. You will use as many senses as you can to relax and focus on the mental images. A teacher or guide can also be helpful during these meditation sessions.
  • Mindfulness meditation. Mindfulness meditation involves focusing on your breathing and paying attention to the present without drifting into thoughts about the past or future. During the meditation, you will improve your consciousness and awareness.
  • Traditional Yoga. Yoga is an ancient type of physical exercise that originated in India thousands of years ago. Traditional yoga follows the theory in the collection book Yoga Sutras of Patanjali and focuses on natural poses, self-reflection, balance, and detoxification to improve your body and mental well-being. It allows you to concentrate on your breathing, meditation skills, and samadhi.
