Meditation is a practice where an individual uses a technique – such as mindfulness or focusing the mind on a particular object, thought, or activity – to train attention and awareness, and achieve a mentally clear and emotionally calm, and stable state.

How to Meditate

1) Take a seat
Find a place to sit that feels calm and quiet to you.

2) Set a time limit
If you’re just beginning, it can help to choose a short time, such as five or 10 minutes.

3) Notice your body

4) Feel your breath

5) Notice when your mind has wandered

6) Be kind to your wandering mind

7) Close with kindness
