Which Type of Meditation Style is Best For You?

While some may think that meditation requires nothing more than sitting silently, it isn’t necessarily as easy as it seems. The commitment needed to practice every day coupled with the challenge to empty your mind of everyday stressors can be discouraging. However, it doesn’t necessarily need to be.

Meditation has been scientifically proven to reduce stress and anxiety, improve health, and increase happiness. However, the most essential aspect of meditation is appealing to your spirit. It is an entirely subjective practice and there is no right or wrong way to meditate. By practicing every day and finding a style that compliments your soul – you’ll not only experience the joy in meditation, but you might just find you’re better at it then you thought!

The following is a list of the most common types of meditation. Discover which one speaks to you!

Types of Meditation

The following are the most common types of meditation styles. Before you begin, ask yourself a few questions:

  • Do you find increased focus through movement?
  • Does darkness help you to relax?
  • Do you find sounds calming or distracting?
  • Are you trying to focus your mind or empty it?

Answering these simple questions can help you to narrow down which type of meditation is most suited for you. If by the end of this article you still can’t decide – Why not try them all?
