1.Focused Meditation

For those who are beginning to meditate, this type of meditation is the one I recommend. Because it is a concrete way where your mind focuses on a single thing such as a sound, an image, a mantra, even your breath, which helps you learn to control your mind. In this way, you will make your mind stop thinking about a thousand things, and you will be more concentrated in the moment, which creates a relaxation that you will carry with you for the rest of the day.

This meditation technique will calm your mind. It is easy to learn, and if practiced regularly, it will undoubtedly help you on your way to inner peace and serenity.

2.Vipassana Meditation

Vipassana meditation is a method of Buddhist self-observation and meditation. It is one of India’s oldest meditation techniques, where it was taught more than 2,500 years ago as a cure for the mind, the body by helping to eliminate toxins.

It consists of a process of self-purification through self-observation. You begin by observing natural breathing to focus your mind. Then, with heightened awareness, you proceed to observe the changing nature of the body and mind and experience the universal truths of permanence, suffering, and egolessness.

3.Transcendental Meditation

Transcendental meditation is an actual and straightforward method. In transcendental meditation, you silently repeat in a specific way a mantra that is given to you personally, such as a word, sound, or phrase.

This form of meditation may allow your body to enter a state of deep relaxation and allow your mind to achieve a state of inner peace without using concentration or effort.
