Daily routine of meditation
Make meditation your daily routine. Involve this habit in your life. Make a suitable time, when you are completely free and no one is there to disturb you. Daily meditation helps you to learn self-control and be disciplined.
Stretching before meditation
You should perform some stretching exercises before you start up with the mediation. Stretching helps you to feel relaxed and promoted flexibility. Stretching program releases tension from tendons and muscles. The stretching exercise helps to concentrate better.
Candle gives light
One of the best techniques of meditation is by using candle. Keep a lightened candle and continuously gaze its inner flame (the red part of the flame). Try to concentrate on the flame. While you concentrate on the flame, you forget the world and for few seconds you are fully concentrated on the candle. This is called meditation. This enhances your concentration power and also gives peace to your mind. The state of total null or void is known as meditation. Your mind is free from worldly chaos and worries. It is free from the bad spirits. Daily practice will increase your mediation time and help to improve concentration.

Feel the nature
Feeling the cool breeze through you is also one kind of meditation, for a movement you forget the world and get immerse in a peaceful reservoir.
Focus your breath
Sit straight, close your eyes and breathe deeply. Remove all the thoughts from your mind. Just focus on your breath. This is one of the effective meditations. This meditation cleanses your system as you do deep breathing. Deep breathing removes all toxins through the air. It makes you feel fresh and increases your concentration power.
Sleeping is not Meditation
Don’t think that when you are sleeping, meditation process is on. Sleeping is a passive process, you are taking rest but your mind or inner conscience works in some or the other way, for example dreams. In meditation you are actually giving rest to your mind and this is very active process. In meditation you keep your mind focused to one point and this need extreme concentration level.

Yoga is great because it gives that opportunity for meditation, otherwise, I find I don’t make time for it.
I’m working on being more diligent though!
Thanks for this informative post!
Agreed. I’ve been doing mantra meditation in the shower lately. Soothing and helps me stay present with the physical sensations.
Thank you for your comment!
I completely agree with the need for a few moments of peace, all too rare nowadays. It’s actually one of my most often returning rants, how everyone runs about with a constant background noise: human beings aren’t build for this speed, ergo modern stress and depressions.
What I personally found really good for relaxing are the meditation exercises on my WiiFit, with the added bonus of being easily available. Thanks for illustrating various techniques 🙂
Cool! I don’t have a Wii, but this is the main reason I wanted to get one. I’ve been trying to simplify lately. Simplify and slow down.
