When you think of meditation, you’re probably like me and imagine you’d have to sit in a position that twists you uncomfortably, on a hard and unforgiving floor, for hours and hours and hours….

So you quit even before you start, convinced that you’ll fail so it’s no use to even try…not to mention you worry that you’ll be in traction for years if you attempt those twisty positions even for one second! 😉

You may not realize that there are different types of meditation methods and one may be perfect for you!

Here’s a listing of some of them:

 

~Zen Meditation

 

~Vipassana Meditation

 

~Mindfulness Meditation

 

~Loving-Kindness Meditation

 

~Mantra Meditation

 

~Transcendental Meditation

 

~Yoga Meditation

 

~”I Am” Meditation

 

~Taoist Meditation

 

~Qigong

 

~Christian Meditation

 

~Guided Meditation

 

~Chakra Meditation

 

~Primordial Sound Meditation

 

~Kundalini Meditation

 

~Yoga Nidra

 

~Tonglen Meditation

 

~Walking Meditation

 

There’s plenty of information on the Internet about these methods of silence and mediation.   Do a little investigating and experimenting to find a style that works for you.

Here are three articles to get you started in your research:

Also, remember to ask your loved ones and friends about what works for them. Make it a priority to craft a practice that works for you and commit to doing it every single day.

You can do it!

Let me know what you found to work the best for you! Thanks!

Your Friend and Pep Pal,

Lauren
