There are many ways to meditate. The main point is to get peace and quiet within yourself.
But this can be difficult for many people. Below is a practice for beginners that can get you started towards the routine.
Sit down on a pillow or a soft underlay, for example, a sheepskin. Use the tailor position. This is a position that automatically make you collect your body and mind into concentration. If the position is a challenge, do not force it. You can also use a chair.
Close your eyes and pay attention to how you inhale and exhale. How does it feel and where in your body do you feel the inhale and exhale?
If your thoughts start to race and your brain starts to act without control, look at them as if they are just passing as they go away into the sky. Immediately go back to focus on your breathing. Stay calm and try to focus for 5 minutes. After that, stretch your body thoroughly and try to carry that peacefulness with you for the rest of the day.
Relaxation gives peace in the mind and brain, and you can recharge for more energy. Your muscles will also relax, and a lot of tension will go away.
Lay down on a soft mat and, if possible, roller pillow under your legs. Grab a soft pillow for your neck if you think it is comfortable. You can also add a soft mat or blanket over your body.
Relax your body step by step and make sure there or no tense muscles left in your hands, face etc. Pay attention to your breathing so that you feel it in your entire body.
Pay attention to different parts of your body and let go of any tension you come across. Start with your feet and move upwards without leaving any part of your body behind. Finally, relax your forehead, eyes, jaws, and mouth.
