If you’re new to meditation, it can be overwhelming to know where to start. With so many different meditation techniques and resources available, it can be hard to know which one is right for you.
One of the best ways to get started with meditation is to try a guided meditation app or program. Guided meditation provides a structured approach to meditation, with a voice or music guiding you through the meditation process. This can be especially helpful for beginners, as it can help you to focus and stay on track during your meditation practice.
Two of our favorite guided meditation apps for beginners are headspace and Sattva. Headspace, created by meditation expert Andy Puddicombe, offers free sessions of 3, 5, and 10 minutes, guided by Andy himself. These sessions are a great way to get a taste of what meditation is all about, and to learn more about the principles and techniques of meditation.
Sattva, created by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, is another great app for beginners. Sattva offers a variety of guided meditation sessions, including ones specifically designed for beginners. The app also offers daily challenges and personalized recommendations to help you progress in your meditation practice.
In addition to these guided meditation apps, there are also many resources available online and in books that can help you get started with meditation. For example, you can find instructional videos on YouTube, or read books about meditation techniques and principles.
Another great way to start meditating is to join a meditation class or group. This can provide a supportive and welcoming environment for learning, and can also be a great way to connect with others who are interested in meditation.
Overall, the most important thing is to find a method of meditation that feels right for you, and to be patient and consistent in your practice. With time and effort, you can develop a regular meditation practice that can have a profound positive impact on your life.
