Meditation made easy

Getting your breathing right is the first step to gathering yourself – and often it's all you need to achieve nirvana (state of perfect happiness), or even take that headache down a notch.

Get started

  • Stop distractions. Sit comfortably – either cross-legged on the floor or on a chair – in a quiet spot. Keep your back straight.

  • Partially close your eyes and become aware of your breathing, preferably through your nostrils.

  • Be exclusively aware of your breathing, and concentrate on the sensation of air being drawn in and out.

  • Resist your busy mind. Keep returning to being aware of your breathing.

  • Practice makes perfect. Do this for 10 to 15 minutes daily and feel the difference. It really works!
