Right temperature for you
Kids busy or in bed
Lying legs supported on a chair if you have back pain.
Lying on the floor, pillow underneath your knees to avoid straining your lower back.
Sitting on a chair with your back right against the back rest.
Sitting on a meditation stool
Sitting on the floor, leg crossed (requires flexible hips!). You can sit against the wall to support your back.
Stay still ignoring outside noises and thoughts. The monologue in your head will keep going, just don’t dwell on it. If it is too loud, just concentrate on your breathing; it will occupy your mind. Just enjoy being there with nothing to do and nowhere to go. Enjoy the peace. Your body and mind will thank you for it!
Note: Some sessions will be more successful than other. Practice makes perfect.
