Russell Simmons, founder of Def Jam, Global Grind, The Rush, Card, and overall Hip Hop Pioneer is a guru in meditating. He says often, “There is power in stillness.” Meditation is the practice of being still, clearing your mind, and finding peace in the moment. It is important for echo of us to find 5, 10, or 20, minutes a day to meditate. If you’ve never meditated before, here’s how to do it.
1. Find an area that is comfortable and quiet with dim lighting. No meditating in the cafeteria.
2. Sit with your legs crossed and your hands either in lap win your fingers lightly crossed or on your legs in a natural position. Also make sure that you are sitting up and that your back is not slouched.
3. Close your eyes and breath. To help you focus on breathing, say inhale and exhale to yourself as you sit.
4. Naturally, your mid will begin to wonder and this is where the power of meditation comes in. You must force yourself to focus on breathing. Think about what’s around you. What do you hear? How do your muscles feel? What do you see behind your eyelids? Do you feel a tingle?
It may seem difficult at first, but the more you practice it, the better you’ll become at doing it. You’ll look for better meditation environments and you
L begin to meditate longer in peace. You will find that your mind will be energized and prepared for the day (or night) ahead. Give it a shot and tell me what you think.
