How to Clear Your Mind
One of the best aspects of meditation is you can do it anywhere. It will become a part of your daily routine, and you will be able to incorporate it into your life when you need it.
It’s also very easy to learn, and easy to do You will be amazed at how much difference it makes in your life, calming you, calming your mind and your body.
To begin your meditation journey, it’s always best to make it habit forming. Choose a time of day that works best for you, so you will have time to do it every day.
1. Start slow
You should just sit, with your eyes closed, if you are comfortable with that, and just relax and breathe for a minute or two. This will ease you into the practice and give you a good idea of what will be happening.
2. Focus on your breathing
See if you can follow it and make it slow and rhythmic. Breath slowly in through your nose and let it out through your mouth. Count one while you inhale and then slowly let it out on two. This will help flush out the bad and busy thoughts and start the relaxation process.
Think of each breath as cleansing you, bringing in the good air and the positive energy and taking out the old, bad thoughts and things that worry you. This will become a habit and you will notice that in stressful situations, just taking a breath and slowing it down will help with stress and keep you calmer.
3. Am I Doing it Wrong?
Don’t worry if you are doing it right. You are. You won’t be an expert on your first day, or ever. That’s the point of meditation. It’s for you, so whatever method works is the best. You find what works best for you and use that.
4. Make it happen at the same time every day
Morning is likely best, and the easiest time to get it into part of your routine. Leave yourself a little reminder, if you need to, like a sticky note on your mirror so you see it every morning.
5. Enjoy the process
Meditation is just for you and so you should enjoy it. If it feels like a chore, there is something missing. Don’t try to rush the process and just give up because it seems silly or doesn’t seem to be working. You won’t just find it on the first few tries, but if you take it seriously, you will see a difference right away.
6. Gradually increase the time
If that means getting up earlier, then that is good. You won’t need to add a great deal of time to each session and once you have the hang of it, you will know what works for you.
Try not to put an exact number on your time, as that is up to you. You may find your results after ten minutes, maybe tomorrow, you will need twenty. Once you are practiced, you will find the results you need in only two or three minutes.
7. Follow your mind
Don’t try to focus on actually clearing your mind, as soon as you try that, all kinds of thoughts come in. Rather, just follow where your mind takes you and allow that thought to be calming and cleansing.
8. Use some calming, peaceful music
Instrumental is preferred, and something calming, like harps or violins. Play it softly and low, just enough to let you hear it in the background, not so it overwhelms you.
Use the same music each time, it will be comforting and familiar. It will start to be a part of your routine and certain passages of music will begin to take you to a beautiful place.
See More Clearly
Meditation is more than just relaxing. It is allowing yourself to let go and become aware of yourself. You slow your mind, your breathing, and you become still and quiet.
Meditation can help with many problems you face every day. It can help you sleep better, focus on work, it will help with your exercise routine and just help you cope with all the things life throws at us.

Using mindful meditation you can calm and slow your mind. It gives you a chance to remove yourself from the pain you may be experiencing and take the focus away from it.
Try to focus on the area where the pain is, and see if it changes. Even a few minutes of meditation can help you relax your mind and body.
