Meditation for Beginners – 7 Top Tips
If you’re new to meditation or not quite ready to join a week-long retreat, you can start reaping the benefits of this exercise now, right in your lounge room.

You don’t need to meditate every waking hour, seven days a week – let alone in silence – to experience tangible brain changes that benefit mood, outlook and capacity to cope with life’s vicissitudes.
Emotional resilience is among the greatest perks.

Meditation can also act as a micro holiday, restoring perspective.
