Guided Meditation For Mindfulness of Breathing

Preparation

Having the right environment for meditation practice sessions can help enhance your experience. You are welcome to try different settings until you land on one that you feel especially comfortable in and easily relate to.

There is no need to set up a fancy alter or sit on the floor in the lotus position to do these practices, although some people like to do so.

It is perfectly acceptable to sit in a comfortable chair, lie down on the floor or on your bed, or take 9 minutes out from your busy day while you are sitting at your desk in your office.

Some practitioners prefer to light a candle or incense to augment their experience. This is also perfectly OK and people say that it helps.

You probably get the idea that what matters is that you do the practice without fussing about your environment.

Before you begin, be sure to turn off you cell phone and other devices so you won’t be disturbed for just 9 minutes.

If possible, close the door and request your friends and family not to interrupt you for at least 9 minutes.

Time To Practice

The best time to practice is in the morning just after you wake up. You may want to go to the bathroom, wash your face, and brush your teeth first. You may also want to do a few stretches to warm up a bit. It is totally up to you.

The second best time to practice is in the evening before you go to bed. You might want to do that in your living room sitting down so you don’t fall asleep before you go to sleep like my wife does sometimes! Then you will go to bed and probably have a wonderful night’s sleep.

However, any time you can find 9 minutes to sit by yourself is a good time to practice. Just don’t do something – sit there!
