Some Tips and Advice
Notice that in both cases, you aren’t being very strict with yourself or reprimanding yourself for letting your mind wander. This is the big mistake that many people make when they first start trying to meditate: they’re so keen to be good at it right away that they get stressed and angry every time they catch their thoughts wandering.
This is entirely contrary to the objective of meditation which is to be calm and not to get stressed. When meditating, make sure that you aren’t placing too much pressure on yourself to get good right away and that you sim- ply ‘notice’ that you’ve let your mind wander and then bring your attention back to the meditation.
If you struggle with this, then another strategy is to try guided meditation. This is meditation that includes instruction from a recording to talk you through each step and to help bring you into a relaxed state.
