Meditation can have a positive effect on our attitude towards life, and can even help improve the quality of our life. The best morning habit is actually an easy one, meditation. Meditation techniques have changed my life, starting with my morning habits.

Easy Morning Habit Routine - Meditation

I take time every morning to quiet my mind and prepare for the day. It soothes my nerves and helps stave off the stress that inevitably tries to creep in.

Less stress often means more positive feelings in general.

Easy Morning Habit Routine – Meditation

I have found that meditation has helped my physical health. Since practicing regular meditation, I have experienced less illness and more energy.

Meditation may help lower blood pressure, improve blood circulation, regulate heart and respiratory rates, reduce stress and anxiety, and promote better overall well-being.

There are various meditation techniques. Concentration meditation focuses on a single point, while mindful meditation is intended to control wandering thoughts.

Morning habits are effective in helping build long-lasting healthy habits into your lifestyle. Here are a few pointers, so that you can reap the benefits of regular meditation.

5 Meditation Tips For Success

Here are my five best tips for a successful morning mediation practice.

1.  CHOOSE A SUITABLE TIME FOR MEDITATION

Meditation is intended to be a time of relaxation, so try to choose a time that is convenient for you and won’t be interrupted.

I have found that morning is the best time for me, before the craziness of the day gets in my way.

2.  FIND A PEACEFUL PLACE TO MEDITATE

Your meditation area should be peaceful and quiet to allow you to concentrate.

3.  SIT IN A COMFORTABLE POSTURE

Your posture makes a huge difference, so make sure it is proper yet comfortable. Sit straight, with your spine erect and legs crossed, keeping shoulders and neck relaxed and your eyes closed throughout your session.

4.  MEDITATE ON AN EMPTY STOMACH

The best time to meditate is before meals, because digestion can make you drowsy; you don’t want to fall asleep during your meditation!

However, make sure you are not starving, either; a hungry stomach can be a huge distraction.

5.  START WITH A WARM-UP SESSION AND DEEP BREATHING

Warm-up exercises will help you achieve better results. Try some small stretches, brief, 30-second concentration periods, or light a candle or incense, just something to help prepare your mind for focus.

Deep breathing is a great way to start. Take full, deep breaths. Strive for mindfulness, concentrating on each breath as it enters and leaves your body.

Now that your body is prepared, there are three different meditation techniques you can use. Here is a brief introduction to them:

3 Easy Meditation Techniques

Here are three easy meditation techniques that you can begin today.

1.   WALKING MEDITATION

If sitting for long periods doesn’t appeal to you, you can try walking meditation. The goal is to focus on your body while you move.

Pay attention to the swing of your arms and how your legs feel with each step. Feel the breath in your body, and note how your feet rise and touch the ground.

2.   BREATHING MEDITATION

In your comfortable position, close your eyes, breathe slowly through your nose, then hold your breath for a few seconds. Exhale again slowly through your mouth, trying to make the exhale twice as long as the inhale.

3.   MINDFULNESS MEDITATION

This requires your mind to be in the moment. Start by focusing on your breath, then begin to notice other sensations throughout your body.

Meditation has changed my life and attitude, and I know you will feel the difference. Start out small, just a few minutes a day, and gradually work your way to more time.

The important thing is to deliberate about making the time. Your body and mind will thank you!
