3 Easy ways to get started:

1. Select a quiet environment.

Find a place where you feel calm, i.e., a secluded room, a park, church, even your car.

2. Sit with your spine erect.
Be seated in a chair or in a cross-legged position on the floor or a meditation pillow.. Let Go of Control.

Start with an open-mind. Once you become adapted to the idea of "letting go" and relaxing try these three commonly used techniques to channel your meditation:

1. Watching your breath. Observe your breath as you sit quietly. Follow your breath as it flows in and out, and notice the space between the in breath and the out breath. Try not to lose your focus if your mind wanders, if it does, bring it back to your breath. Be a calm observer.

2. Object Concentration.
Focus on an object such as a picture, candle flame or a favorite setting. The goal is to bring your mind to one point of focus in the moment.

3. Mantra Meditation.
Repeat a word or series of words to yourself to gain control of your restless mind. Use words that represent health and serenity to you such as, "joy", "peace", "love", "harmony", etc., once again, if your mind wanders, bring it back to your mantra. If at first you have difficulty meditating for very long, do not get discouraged. Setting aside your thoughts, for however long, may be one of the most important things you do for yourself.
