It is a good idea to take up meditation as it offers excellent mental and physical benefits. As a beginner, you can practice this easy meditation exercise and once you have mastered it, move on to advanced forms. Always remember, the catchword in meditation is ‘breath.’ You need to start by sitting down calmly at one spot. Close your eyes while breathing normally. Concentrate on the flow of the breath as it comes in and goes out of your internal organs – the chest, ribs, stomach and shoulders. At this stage, do not try to control your breath. Meditate in this manner for short intervals to begin with, increasing the span gradually for as long as you can sustain. Practice this meditation exercise daily in a peaceful place.
