It’s important to be comfortable when you begin to meditate. Discomfort is a huge distraction for the mind.
For you, sitting comfortably might be on a cushion with your legs crossed. It might be on a chair or even on the floor with your back against a wall.
No matter which position you choose there are two important things to keep in mind.
The first is that your back should be straight – not ramrod or stiff but erect.
The second is that you are able to be comfortable for the period of time you’ve set yourself for meditating.

Listening to music can be a very soothing form of meditation. Of course the music needs to be something tranquil with no lyrics. Many people use classical music, particularly that of the Baroque period. Some of the popular composers from that period are: JB Bach, Vivaldi, Telemann and Pachelbel.
If you try meditating to music remember to really focus on LISTENING.
This means bringing your mind back to the music each time you notice it wandering.
Ian took this photo near Albury on an art excursion. The water is fairly still but is actually still flowing. The birds are on the lookout for fish. It is easy to see the perfection in nature. Everything is simply in flow, arising and passing. The birds never seem to hurry!
I decided recently that I would take my time with the tasks of the day. I was falling into the trap of believing that I could get more done in the day than was actually possible. And I would find myself working as fast as possible and frequently feeling stressed and unhappy when there were holdups or difficulties.
Do you find the same? Or are you able to go with the flow. To be content with how much you achieve. To not underestimate the time it will actually take to finish a job.
The real benefit of “going with the flow” is that I can stay relaxed as I work. And therefore my brain wave patterns are more likely to be alpha than beta. And I am more able to access my creativity and intuition as I work.
