A few things you should know about mediation:
Choose a secluded environment.
Opt for a place that is quiet. Whether you choose to meditate at home, at your office or at a public park just look for a place where you won’t be interrupted or disturbed by others constantly. The whole point of meditation would be undermined if you can’t manage to enjoy that moment of silence and peace that will help to domesticate those unruly feelings of stress and anxiety.
Make sure you are practicing meditation in a comfortable position.
Choose a position in which you feel the most comfortable, though avoid laying down as you might fall asleep. The best position is to sit up straight where your spine is aligned vertically to the floor. While meditating it is imperative that you maintain a good posture as otherwise it can lead to injuries.
Don’t worry about how well you do during your mediation sessions
Stop focusing on how well you are doing or quit worrying about all the random thoughts that keep crossing your mind during meditation. Don’t try suppressing these thoughts but rather just try reverting back your attention to the point or thing that helps you to relax. Channeling your way through the thoughts will help you to learn how to silence random thoughts in your everyday life as well.
