Tips For Practicing Meditation and Mindfulness
Meditation can be challenging for many people. It takes time and perseverance to master meditation exercises no matter what type of meditation you may be practicing. However, once you have perfected your meditation technique, the benefits can go a long way to helping you feel better about yourself and your fibromyalgia symptoms.
Here are a few tips to get you started on the right foot:
- Try to find a quiet, serene place to meditate in.
- Don’t worry about doing it right or wrong. This will only increase your anxiety, defeating the purpose of meditating in the first place – instead, try and let things happen on their own.
- Don’t meditate on an empty stomach. Hunger is a powerful urge and will prevent your mind and body from relaxing properly.
- Remember to focus on your breathing. Concentrate as you inhale and exhale.
- Meditate in a comfortable position. Try sitting up with your back straight. If this is too painful, lie flat on the floor with your arms resting beside you.
