To give meditation a try explore one of the following strategies. Meditation is a simple practice but that doesn’t mean it’s easy.

1. Just Sit

Commit to doing nothing more than sitting quietly and watching what happens.

Just sit and observe the thoughts that pass through your mind. You will likely be surprised by how difficult it is to sit quietly for 10 minutes.

One of the foremost pioneers in alternative medicine Deepak Chopra believes meditation can both heal you and reverse the biological effects of aging.

2. Listen to The Sounds of Life

Open your ears and adopt a receptive attitude. At first you’ll hear only the most obvious noises but over time you’ll discover new layers of sounds.

Challenge yourself to observe what you hear.  Notice how the world feels more alive as your awareness deepens.
