Does meditation really work? How do i start?

I have read about how good meditation is for you. Especially if you suffer from anxiety issues. How do i start meditating and getting the full effect from it. Is there cds that help you relax while doing meditation. Any info is really appreciated!!!


  1. yes it works, but it’s different for each person. figure out what relaxes you personally. then take a few minutes a day, breathe deeply, play some music that relaxes you, and just reflect on your day.. on your life.. what you have thats great. then open your eyes with a positive attitude

  2. I sit quietly in a straight-back chair with my eyes closed.
    I drop my hand to my side and just begin to notice it until it tingles. Doing this keeps me centered and objective. It puts some distance between me and anxious thoughts.
    Whenever I get lost in my thoughts I just keep noticing my hand again and again patiently thoughout the meditation.
    I continue this for about 10 minutes or as long as is comfortable. There is not mantra involved.
    The benefits of meditation can be linked to the concepts of present moment awareness and consciousness. It may interest you to read “Practicing the Power of Now” by Eckhart Tolle.
    Good luck to you.

  3. Meditation is awesome for many people with stress and/or people whom just want to bring a little more peace into ones life. Where to start is different for many people, but a common place to start would be be just sit in a quiet and relaxing place somewhere in your own home and just practice slow and low breathing. This slow and low breathing is important for good meditation and is very helpful for ones mental health.
