Easy Meditation Techniques
Here we provide a couple of easy meditation techniques for you.
Practicing your meditation is easier that you think and you can reap the benefits of meditation from even a few minutes of meditation a day.
Are you a beginner learning how to meditate?
Do you only have a only few minutes spare to meditate?

Meditations don't have to be long hours of sitting in the lotus position.
They can be simple to learn and easy to practice.
Here we provide you with two easy meditation techniques. These include:
A five minute meditation exercise
First minute: Find a quiet place and sit comfortably. Spend the first minute listening to the rhythm of your body.
Rather than listening to the mind try to listen to the physical messages your body is sending you.
Do you feel tension, tightness, or any other sensation in the different parts of your body?
If so, then these are signs to give a little more care to these areas.
Second minute: Bring your awareness to your breath.
With each inhale feel the abdomen and rib cage expand and with each exhale feel the flow of air out of the body.
Third minute: Deepen your awareness of your breathing as your breathing slows down into long breaths in and out.
Fourth minute: Bring your awareness to the air entering and leaving your body.
Feel the air enter through your nostrils, filling up the lower and then upper portions of your lungs, and the leaving the body out of your mouth.
Fifth minute: Bring your awareness back to your body and listen to the messages that your body is giving to you. Note any changes in physical tension.
Well done, you have finished a easy meditation technique that took five minutes.
Can you make a commitment for tomorrow? Can you find five minutes in your day to practice this meditation technique.
