10 Simple Preparations for Meditation

meditation sitting pose

Wouldn’t it be nice to drop everything we are doing to sit down and meditate.

Unfortunately for beginners and long term meditators alike, it isn’t quite so easy.

There are many, many distractions that sways us from our task.

That is why what we do before we begin meditation can help us to relax our mind and body. In this way, our meditation is more fruitful and beneficial.

Here are 10 simple preparations for meditation in the form of Do’s.

10 Simple Preparations for Meditation

1. Do Wear Loose fitting clothes.

Heavy clothes are uncomfortable. This includes the clothes you wore throughout the day.

Added layers of wardrobes create too much heat. Meditation shouldn’t be a sweaty workout. So leave the jackets at home.

Tight shirts and pants constrict blood flows.

But a loose and comfortable clothing can make your meditation a relaxing exercise.

2. Do Use the bathroom before your meditation.

Sometimes you are fine. But sometimes you really need to go.

Meditation reveals many thoughts floating in our heads.

Such thoughts can produce anxiety and the need to release the tension should we heed them.

While one can persist in holding it, it is much more easier if we do the diligence of going to the bathroom before the session so we don’t have to deal with it in the first place.

3. Do Practice on a light stomach.

Make sure you are not so hungry that your mouth is salivating and your stomach growling.

On the other hand, you don’t want to have too much of an empty stomach that you begin to feel lightheaded.

This shouldn’t be too hard if you but feel how well your body is. If you feel fine, all is well.

4. Do Be emotionally free.

At least for the time being, you want to be emotionally neutral.

No other emotions should get in the way of your meditation.

What would happen if you were to be angry and depressed under meditation?

How much harm can you do to yourself?

Calmness. That is the state of mind we want to be in.

5. Do Rest first if you are tired.

Do meditation when you have the energy to sustain long periods.

Don’t do meditation if you are tired. You’ll likely fall asleep.

6. Do practice at dawn and midnight.

Generally, you can do meditation at any time.

However, the atmosphere is quiet enough at night so it helps to calm the mind.

As you wake up in the morning, the body is fully rested and the mind is calm.

The hours in-between dawn and midnight are used for work, school, play, hangout, and other tasks which waste energy. You’re also gathering a bunch of information throughout the day.

So a good way to fit a meditation into your schedule is to perform under early morning and late at night.

7. Do Have a distraction-free environment.

The room should be clean and the atmosphere is quiet.

Should the room be chaotic, you are likely to be distracted by how much clutter is in the room.

If there is an object that stimulates your curiosity, then you want to hide that object.

8. Do Adjust your posture.

Sit for a few minutes to know any tension or discomfort in your body.

There are times when you have sat for a minutes and find that your legs are tired. It almost always ends up being a bad posture.

So adjust yourself so that you are more comfortable.

You don’t have to sit full lotus style if you can’t do it. Sitting in a chair or a loose lotus is just fine.

Whichever posture you choose, make sure the back is straight.

9. Do Know what you are meditating for.

Many times you may sit down to meditate but swing from purpose to purpose.

How stressful is it to waste so much energy in choosing what to meditate on while under meditation?

That is why stating your purpose beforehand helps you to focus better.

10. Do keep the same schedule

Our habits gets better when we do them at the same time each day, such as brushing our teeth.

If we perform meditation under the same circumstances, the mind gets ready for it.

It would only help to meditate on the same schedule each day.
