What is your favorite method of meditation?

When I feel like I need some time with myself, I love to run. But this isn’t always possible. What do you do to get in tune with yourself and relax?

  1. My favorite method is Vipassana meditation, but you should do that in a center first, so you really understand (that means by experience) what it can do for you.
    I prefer Goenka style, I have done Mahasa Sayadaw style too, but for me that was not the best thing at the right time.
    I think everyone for himself should experiment and see what feels best at some moment.
    You can also do some JIn Shin Jyutsu kind of meditation:

    While laying down you relax and do this exercise as relaxed as possible, just hold, don’t press, and feel for pulsation.
    Even if I do it for just 6 minutes (1 minute per hold) when I am in a tired state because of working too hard, it gives me energy for some hours.
    Just try and see what it does to you.
    Good luck

  2. One meditation technique is called gibberish. Make all kinds of sounds, as long as they are not a real language. Pretend you are talking in a language no one knows. Make loud sounds, soft sounds, angry sounds, sad sounds, just create any non-word sounds you like. Really get into it! And move your body around too.
    After five or ten minutes, stop, and sit silently for five minutes, becoming aware of your thoughts, feelings, or sensations. Just watch. Do not try to change or fix anything. Do not try to stop the mind. Love yourself, and accept whatever happens from your heart.

  3. Mindfulness is a type of meditation that essentially involves focusing on your mind in the present. To be mindful is to be aware of your thoughts and actions in the present, without judging yourself.
    Research suggests that mindfulness meditation may improve mood, decrease stress, and boost immune function.
