There are many meditation techniques and no wrong or right ones. All that matters is finding one that works for you.
There are many proven benefits of meditation including lower blood pressure, improved blood circulation, lower heart rate, less perspiration, slower respiratory rate, less anxiety and stress and lower blood cortisol levels.
A simple meditation exercise to begin with is to sit or lie comfortably, close your eyes, simply breathe naturally and focus on your breath and body as you breathe. The moment your mind begins to wander bring it back to focus on your breathing. Do this regularly for as long as you feel is necessary for you to deeply relax and be completely present. You can work up to longer durations. The more often you meditate the easier it will become to maintain focus. This is called concentration meditation. You can choose to focus on something else besides your breath such as a candle flame or listening to the ocean. The point is to let go of your wandering thoughts and keep bringing your focus back to the object of your attention.
Another simple meditation technique is mindfulness meditation. One type of mindfulness meditation is to become still and simply observe your thoughts. Don’t get caught up in them or judge them, just see them for what they are and notice their patterns. Realize that we often perceive a situation to be bad or good because we get caught up in our thoughts and we believe that they’re real. When we step back and observe our thoughts and situations, we are able to retire to the centre of our being and realize that much of what we worry about isn’t that dire after all.
