Setting the mood: This meditation can be enjoyed anywhere, in most situations, in the car, in the kitchen, in a restaurant, in bed, on the beach, however for best results I am usually asked to suggest the ideal situation.
Clothing: You may wear your day work clothes. However it is preferable to separate work from leisure or relaxation by changing into loose and comfortable clothes.
Room: The room needs to be airy, warm and quite (it doesn’t need to be totally silent).
Chair: Sit in a comfortable chair, back straight, with your feet flat on the floor.
Breathing: Take a few deep breaths to prepare your lungs and blood stream. Breath evenly throughout, preferably diaphragm breaths, “baby breathing”, deep into the abdomen.
Time: Devote 5 minutes and don’t worry about the next thing that’s supposed to happen!.
