How to meditate properly and effectively

Meditation is a powerful source of centering your mind. Yet there isn’t much awareness about it and its impact on life. This is why we must start the conversation about the importance of meditation. Especially how to meditate properly and effectively, but it is also important to understand the importance and ability of our mind to help ourselves.

Meditation is a powerful tool that not only helps us take control of our minds but also pushes us to make better decisions. Understanding the Importance of Meditation is really important for the young generation that is consumed by social media.

As society has evolved, so has social media. Adding exceptional pressure on youngsters to live a fantastical life. Hence, we need to prepare our young generation to practice meditation to prepare their minds to take over the world and not be consumed by the power of social media and other societal pressures. 

Understanding the importance of Meditation is key to our existence in the given circumstances as you can find peace in the middle of all the chaos. Learning to meditate will open up new horizons for you and help you gain perspective in life by decreasing stress levels and enhancing your creativity.

Finally, all this talk about meditation warrants the question of how to meditate. If you are at the beginner level you must find an app or a youtube video that works for you. The guided meditation apps available on Google Play Store, Apple Store, and Youtube will help you to learn meditation.

Most of these channels offer focused guided meditations as well. Such as the law of attraction or sleep peacefully meditations. However, at the beginner level, my advice to you would be to go with Headspace.

The best app that I have personally used and am a proud user of. It takes you through the process with the help of mini clips of animations to help you understand each meditation. If you subscribe to the service you can have access to a lot of other mindful meditations that take you through the process by teaching you how to meditate.

Why do I need to meditate:

Some people think they can’t meditate because they don’t have a mat or a stool to sit on. Learning to meditate will mean you do not have to rely on these tools to meditate. Once you find yourself in a quiet place where you can sit undisturbed for 10 minutes, you can easily have a 10-minute session.

With the app Headspace, you can choose the length of the guided meditations as well. This service, however, is not available on youtube videos. The videos uploaded on youtube are generally either half an hour or an hour long. This is why, if you are planning to meditate before bed then use youtube videos as the length of the video makes you fall asleep easily.

List of apps and channels for meditations:

Here is a list of channels and apps that offer guided meditations on the play store and youtube.

  1. Great Meditation
  2. Headspace 
  3. The Honest Guys
  4. Jason Stephenson 
  5. Positive Suggestion
  6. Calm
  7. Tide
  8. Meditation & Relaxation
  9. Simple Habit
  10. Relax with Andrew Johnson

As a meditation app junkie, I can assure you that either one of these 10 meditations can help you relax in the middle of a chaotic day. These practitioners don’t just guide you but they help teach you to meditate. So once you learn how to meditate you can learn to relax by listening to calming music only. As someone who has been using meditation apps for the past 10 years of my life. I can promise you that these guided meditations will train your mind to relax and let go of your fears and anxieties.

This is why Meditation is important:

Meditation is a process of unfolding and folding deep corners of your mind and shining the light in the darkness when there isn’t any hope. Seeking the good inside you and seeking within the meaning of life.

Make your Meditation Process About you and only you.

Now you Meditate properly and effectively

Focus on what’s missing from your life and try to attain it with all the pure intentions as much as you can. Life isn’t about the material goods it’s so much more. It’s about inner peace, its about happiness, and its about finding that sweet spot between calm and chaos, and giving in. Because you cannot change what’s happened but you can change how you perceive life. Calming your mind to let yourself feel and experience all the things in a more mindful and peaceful way.

[…] Manage your thought process, understand that when you are attracted to someone it’s an infatuation. And there isn’t any real connection there, which means you need to not think about it. Try to limit interaction with this person.  Less Engagement means less attraction. Keep an eye out for a pickup line, in which case refrain from responding with light banter. Send a clear message that this kind of behavior is unacceptable. Another cool way to manage your mind is by meditation, I have written a post on how to meditate and you can read that by clicking here. […]

[…] PS. you will hear me talk against meditation in this podcast but that is entirely due to the length of the process. Not because of its effectiveness. I personally swear by the effectiveness of meditation and have written this blog post on meditation. […]
