Wherever-whenever Meditation

Crystal Champagne
Meditation is an easy and effective tool that you can practice wherever and whenever to relieve stress and increase concentration. You can meditate almost anywhere; in bed, on the metro or train to work and in your living room. You can meditate for as long or as little as you like. You can sit to meditate, walk or even practice yoga or pilates while meditating.

There is no correct or incorrect way to meditate. There are many ways to practice mediation, so try several to find out the one that best suits your life style.

There is also no correct or incorrect meditation experience. It’s ok if you find it hard to focus and can’t concentrate, as well it’s normal if you don’t feel any different when you have finished, the most important thing is to keep at it and with time you will start to see and feel the benefits.

Whenever, Wherever MeditationPractice and see the results.You will see the greatest rewards when you meditate regularly. For example, you may want to schedule 5 minutes every day into your routine either when you are on the metro, or during a walk at lunch time.

Easy steps to follow: The key to mediation is to focus your attention, so that your “mental garbage”, be it your to-do list, your worries or unnecessary thoughts - dissipate. It is about bringing a sense of balance, and stillness to your mind, so you can shed light and clarity to a situation you might find stressful.

The basic mediation steps are simple and easy to follow.

  1. For sitting meditation find a comfortable position, you may choose to sit on a chair or on the floor while keeping your back straight and your chest open.
  2. Rest your hands on your lap, keeping palms up and unwind.
  3. If possible keep eyes partly closed and relax your gaze by gazing ahead of you.
  4. Choose a focal point to keep attention fixed. This could be your breathing, a mantra (word you repeat), a picture, or a positive image in your mind.
  5. Begin by just being aware of your breathing and consciously relax your body.
  6. Relax your mind. Don’t try to push the thoughts away, just be aware of your thought pattern and try to return your wandering attention to the focus of your meditation.
