How to Meditate: A One-Minute Daily Meditation Exercise

how to meditate

There are so many myths about how to meditate, what a daily meditation practice means, and what the overall experience of meditation should be. I was happy to see Bhanu Narasimhan from the Art of Living Foundation debunk common meditation myths.

Here’s the thing: Meditation is for everyone, and it’s different for everyone. There is no right or wrong way of doing it, and meditation can help you increase your focus, reduce stress, and prevent common health ailments. While some people have a meditation practice that is part of a larger religious or spiritual path, it certainly doesn’t have to be.

If you’re a little skeptical about the benefits of meditation, I love this Lifehacker post, What Happens to the Brain When You Meditate (And How it Benefits You), written by a former skeptic of meditation.

In today’s episode of She Takes on the World TV I want to make meditation super simple for you, with this daily meditation technique I learned in China.

Check it out:

Be sure to downloaded my free daily morning meditation MP3 if you haven’t already. It has been a popular download and it’s a great companion for this one-minute meditation exercise. Namaste.

    1. Oh I love Bali so much! Every time I travel and go to meditation classes in different countries I learn something new. Makes me very happy 🙂

  1. Loved the breathing and the breathing exercise – it really invigorated and energised me – and so simple to do. This will be done over the next thirty days for sure. Thanks for this Natalie!

    1. The teacher told me the arm movements are especially important when I’m traveling a lot and doing this on the airplane because it keeps you moving and generates good energy. I took his word for it and had a great flight even though people looked at me as I did it 😉

  2. Yesss Melissa! I like how you put it, “waking the energy,” because that’s exactly how it feels for me too.

  3. The breathing with that arm movement is really helpful, I’ve done it 2-4 times now. Really removes the stress, feeling energized now. And I totally agree that meditation hasn’t have to be a larger part of religious or spiritual path. Thanks.

  4. Loved your site, I have copied it to all the young women in my family and friends. The meditation and breathing is superb.
    More on this later. THANKS from Spain.

  5. This is an awesome little energy booster! I love it. Definitely loving the ‘arm workout’ and the mantra addition. Very potent. Thanks for sharing this technique. Where in China was this shared with you?
