Meditation is a skill — it’s not an innate trait! You have to work on it, and you’ll find that over time, you’ll become better. At first, you may notice your mind begins to wander. You’ll begin worrying about the tasks of the day, current stressors, or your environment. This is normal! However, the goal is to completely quiet your mind with an alternative therapy method.
By using a meditation coach in Toronto , you’ll be reminded to follow your breath, and meditation will become easier for you. Your mind can be a difficult place to live in sometimes; however, we can help make it the safest, warmest, and most friendly place that you could live.
After all, it is your home!
What is Meditation?
It’s all the rage right now – for a good reason. Meditation is an ancient practice, presumably dating from 5000 to 3500BCE. First practised by the Vedas in India, Meditation was further developed by the Buddhists in India, China, and Japan. Now largely used in the Yogi community, meditation is loved for its positive benefits of spiritual fulfillment and emotional stability.

What is the best way to begin my practice?
Set intentions for your practice – whether you want to sit for two minutes or twenty minutes. You may choose to repeat a mantra, or you may want to focus on breathwork. Find a focal point, whether that be calmness, kindness, or balance. Allow yourself to let go of your current worries, stressors, or anxieties for the duration of your practice.
How long should I meditate per day?
This will be largely dependent on your own personal goals! Like any exercise, you’ll be able to sit longer as you begin to train yourself. Start small and celebrate the length of time that you can focus on your breathwork. If you are new to meditation, you may only sit for five minutes – and that’s okay!
Where should I do my practice?
Find a comfortable and quiet place to practice your meditation! At Master Your Mind, we have a dim room that we dedicate to our practice. At home, you can simulate this as well. Dim the lights and be free of noise. As you begin to improve your practice, you may learn to meditate in busy rooms.
How should I sit?
We recommend that you sit in a way that is comfortable for you! Try having the spine upright, shoulders relaxed, and the hands resting. Above all, make sure you’re comfortable and can stay in this position for several minutes.
