Starting a meditation practice as a beginner can be a little bit tough or confusing. In this pill I'll give you a few tips to make it smoother for you to get the very basics of a great meditation.
1) Find a quiet place
2) Sit in a comfortable, upright position
Begin by sitting on a chair. Try sitting right on the edge so your back isn't touching the back of the chair. Avoid crossing your arms and feet.
4) Lay your hands on your thighs
5) Close your eyes
6) Be still
Try to stay still, listening to every sound around you. Feel your breathing. 5 minutes is all you need.
Remember that meditation is about practice, so don't get discouraged if your first try isn't what you expected.
