The easiest form of meditation is a simple but concentrated deep inhale through the nose and exhale through the mouth. It’s a wonderful, lightening feeling to be fully present in the moment – even if just a short while.
There is an excellent blog at stopandbreathe.com that shows you how simple it is to learn to meditate. Simple yet very effective. You can read How to Meditate: A 10 Step Beginner’s Guide here http://stopandbreathe.com/2011/03/04/meditation-101-a-10-step-beginners-guide/
There are other forms of meditation too. Anything that centres the mind and clears away any distraction is a form of meditation like collecting shells, balancing rocks, colouring a mandala, painting, or gardening. You don’t need to be a buddhist, or a guru, or fall into a trance. Anyone would benefit from setting aside a pocket of time to find inner silence or sit in quiet reflection.
