Meditation is an approach to training the mind, similar to the way that fitness is an approach to training the body. But many meditation techniques exist — so how do you learn how to meditate?

Moodzie believes that meditation of some form is essential in order for a person to relax fully, as meditation can be one of the most calming feelings we may achieve, and Moodzie has some tips for those struggling to meditate. As it surely is very tough for someone just starting out and meditating for multiple hours, as many cannot even comprehend that, however at the start any progress is really progress, as rather being discouraged Moodzie would aim to state that one must remain focused on their goals, and hope to improve gradually, rather than simply setting goals one doubts themselves they will not achieve. Moodzie will now highlight the different types of meditation one can do. Concentration meditation involves focusing on a single point. This could entail following the breath, repeating a single word or mantra, staring at a candle flame, listening to a repetitive gong, or counting beads on a mala. Since focusing the mind is challenging, a beginner might meditate for only a few minutes and then work up to longer durations.

In this form of meditation, you simply refocus your awareness on the chosen object of attention each time you notice your mind wandering. Rather than pursuing random thoughts, you simply let them go. Through this process, your ability to concentrate improves. Another one would be that of mindfulness meditation, as mindfulness meditation encourages the practitioner to observe wandering thoughts as they drift through the mind. The intention is not to get involved with the thoughts or to judge them, but simply to be aware of each mental note as it arises.

Through mindfulness meditation, you can see how your thoughts and feelings tend to move in particular patterns. Over time, you can become more aware of the human tendency to quickly judge an experience as good or bad, pleasant or unpleasant. With practice, an inner balance develops. In some schools of meditation, students practice a combination of concentration and mindfulness. Many disciplines call for stillness — to a greater or lesser degree, depending on the teacher. There also other forms of meditation such as walking meditation, or ancient monk techniques, however these two listed above are simpler to follow, and very beneficial, as they will help one relax a lot more, and Moodzie believes, it will also help one think better and in, a clearer state of mind, while improving your mood and emotional regulation.

Moodzie believes that mindfulness assists with calming.  Here are some tips to bring your attention to the present moment.
