Meditation is a great way to deal with anxiety and stress. It may also help you sleep better.

But you should know that it takes time to learn how to meditate well. So, it's essential to start small and gradually lengthen your meditation sessions as you get used to them.

Setting a timer can help if you want to meditate for a specific time. This keeps you from worrying about the time and from going over your session time.

You can also choose not to set a timer and sit and think. This can be helpful if you want to avoid being tempted to think about the time, relax, or clear your mind during your meditation session.

It can also help if you're starting out and wondering if you can meditate for extended periods. But if you use a timer, it's essential to remember that it shouldn't be loud or beep so you don't get startled out of your meditation.

Sitting comfortably is an essential part of meditation. Your meditation will be less effective if you sit in a too complicated, painful, or tense way.

Your back should be straight and relaxed, your head and neck should align with your spine, and your arms should rest comfortably on your legs or in your lap with your palms facing up. There is no one perfect meditation position that works for everyone. Finding a comfortable way to meditate that works best for you will take some time.

Start with a short meditation and slowly add more time to each position. You may decide to move from one meditation position to another.

Focusing on your breath is one of the best ways to meditate at home. This simple form of concentration is easy to learn and can help you feel less stressed by bringing you back to the present moment and restoring your inner calm.

During meditation, think about how your breath feels as it goes in and out of your nose. No matter how fast or slow or deep or shallow, it is.

If your mind wanders away from the breath, don't try to control it or judge it. Instead, gently bring it back to the breath. You might find that your mind returns to the breath every time you realize it has wandered.

Once you're used to this exercise, you can focus on breathing more by counting up to ten breaths. You can also look at the edges of your nostrils as you breathe. If sounds or feelings distract your attention, bring it back to the breath.

During meditation, repeating a mantra, which can be a word, sound, or phrase, can help you pay attention. It can also have remarkable effects, like making your mind healthier and giving you more ideas.

A mantra is a short word or phrase that means something to you or a Sanskrit word you learned from a meditation teacher. Say it to yourself in your mind without speaking, and pay attention to how it sounds and how it makes you feel.

Repetition is essential to many creative processes, from writing to art to dance. It can give a story or idea rhythm, make something stand out, and make it easier to remember.
