If you are new to meditation, here are a few beginner's tips you can do to get you started:
* Find a quiet place in your home, car, at the park, in your bedroom or bathroom where you know that you will not be disturbed for at least 10 minutes.
* Sit upright in a chair, preferably, with your feet planted directly on the floor or ground, and the palms of your hands resting on your lap (palms up).
* Close your eyes, listen to your breath, relax your body parts one by one and listen to the thoughts that are coming in. Trust me, there will be a lot of thoughts coming in. Don't try to dismiss them...let them flow in and flow out as you continue to keep your focus only on your breath.
* Eventually, through practice, the thoughts will be become less and less and then you can focus more on your breathing and thereby become more relaxed.
The tips above is teaching you to still your mind and relax your body which leaves you feeling refreshed. Once you are able to still your mind you can move into other types of relaxation techniques that are not only relaxing but revealing as well.
