How do you meditate?

A avocation celebrating

First, find a comfortable and quiet place to sit or lay down.

Once you’re comfortable, close your eyes and focus on your breathing. Don’t get discouraged if your thoughts are racing while trying to meditate, especially when you’re first getting started. Simply let the thoughts pass by and continue focusing on your breath.

Some people like to meditate in silence while others like to meditate to calming music, either is fine. There are many guided meditations out there as well that are especially helpful for beginners!
