Last week we discussed how meditation could change your day. This week I want you to practice it again. here are some tools and steps to help you. 

Set up a time daily to meditate that will not be forgotten or ignored. The first thing in the morning is great. You want to establish this as new daily habit, so it needs to be a priority. Here is a simple meditation for beginners.

  1. Sit or lie comfortably. Pick the same place daily so your body and brain knows when it goes to this place, you are preparing to meditate.

  2. Close your eyes.

  3. Make no effort to control the breath; simply breathe naturally.

  4. Focus your attention on the breath and on how the body moves with each inhalation and exhalation. Notice the movement of your body as you breathe. Observe your chest, shoulders, rib cage and belly. Make no effort to control your breath; simply focus your attention. If your mind wanders, simply return your focus back to your breath. Maintain this meditation practice for 2–3 minutes to start, and then try it for longer periods.
