This guide is to help maintain a healthy state of mind and manage stress in fun, active ways.
Meditation: to engage in contemplation or reflection
How to Meditate for beginners:
Sit or lie comfortably. You may even want to invest in a meditation chair or cushion.
Close your eyes. We recommend using a cooling eye masks if lying down.
Make no effort to control the breath; simply breathe naturally.
Focus your attention on the breath and on how the body moves with each inhalation and exhalation. Notice the movement of your body as you breathe. Observe your chest, shoulders, rib cage, and belly. Simply focus your attention on your breath without controlling its pace or intensity. If your mind wanders, return your focus back to your breath.
Maintain this meditation practice for two to three minutes to start, and then try it for longer periods.
