what do you think about during meditation?

Above all, don't try to overcomplicate meditation. Meditation is a solitary practice where you sit in silence for a period of time and try to clear your mind, regulate your breathing and focus your thoughts. Research shows that meditation can reduce psychological distress, such as stress, anxiety and depression, by 40 per cent, according to the David Lynch Foundation. 8-10 December So why not experiment with what you focus on? Here are 20 ideas of things to try.

See which one or ones create the most powerful experience for you. This is perhaps the most common type of meditation. Focus your attention on the breath and return to it whenever your mind wanders. Instead of focusing on something specific external, simply focus your attention on being in the present moment.

Experience what is happening right now, moment to moment, what are you feeling, what are the layers and subtleties of those emotions? Trace an emotion back to its cause. What has triggered that emotion? Are there unconscious emotional triggers at play? Don't beat yourself up about anything, simply observe your emotional triggers with compassion and curiosity. Focus on your own sense of compassion. On the care and love you feel for those around you.

Allow this feeling to grow and expand. Bring to your mind a person who has hurt you, or who you perceive has hurt you. Allow yourself to feel and experience all the emotions associated with that experience, and then slowly let them go. Explore what your core values are.

What really matters to you? What do you stand for? How are those core values present in this moment? How inspired do you feel right now, in the present moment? Explore the ins and outs of what makes you feel inspired, or why you don't feel inspired. Becoming aware of the pain of those around you can be a powerful way to develop more compassion. Think about the people around you who are suffering: those you know personally or those you see suffering and don't know personally (such as the homeless in your city). Let their suffering in and respond with love and compassion.

This meditation is useful when there is a conversation in which your mind is stuck. First, allow yourself to think about that conversation for a few moments. Then bring your attention back to the present. Now pay attention to the thoughts, emotions and physical sensations that arise.

This can help dispel any lingering feelings related to that conversation.
