Keep Your Eyes Open

It is best if you keep your eyes open while meditating. You may drift into thoughts or dreams if you close your eyes. Do not keep your eyes wide open as you may see things and this may distract you. It is best to keep your eyes low and vision soft while you meditate.

Breathe Normal

You do not have to breathe in any peculiar fashion to meditate. You can use your breath as a focal point. You can concentrate on the breath that is streaming in and out of the body. This will help you concentrate better.

Count Your Breath

You may even count your breath to concentrate. You must count from one and when your mind gets diverted, begin from one all over again. This is a common method used by people for meditation.

Control of Thoughts and Emotions

You must be able to restrict your thoughts and control your emotions while meditating. When your mind starts straying, take effort to bring back your concentration. Do not let emotions disturb the peace of mind you are experiencing.
Select a Silent Location

You must meditate sitting in a silent location that is far from distractions. The location you select should also be hygienic and there should be no one to disturb you here. Silence can help you be at peace.
