20 of the Best Meditation Tips for Beginners
Good health is equal parts physical and mental, it’s important not to get too caught up in one but forget about the other. A small issue exists in that we have plenty of resources and tips for becoming better physically, but the same wealth of options for mental exercise has yet to catch up. Brain science is still in relative infancy, so knowledge about what truly works and what is simply pseudoscience is still being uncovered.
There is one tried and true practice that science has only found support for, meditation. More and more recent research has dug into meditation and found powerful reasons in support: it betters focus, reduces stress, boosts memory, and greater self-awareness. For a proper balance of mental and physical health, perhaps all you need is to make a regular routine of both the gym and meditation. For all those new to the act, Huffington Post have a new article on the 20 best meditation tips for beginners:
1. Begin With Quick 5-Minute Sessions
It’s easy for beginners to get overwhelmed when trying to sustain a 20-minute-meditation. That can feel brutal in the beginning. Start out nice and easy. Begin with 5-minute sessions, and when you’re ready for more, move it up to 10 minutes.
The body and mind are not as separate as has often been thought, they are both intimately tied to each other. Working out one over the other is akin to only doing upper body exercises, you shouldn’t forget leg day, and you shouldn’t ignore head day. Check out the rest of the post for all the tips.
