The Beginner’s Guide To Meditation

Do You Want To Get Ripped?

Meditation is an incredibly beneficial practice. Here’s everything you need to know about the art of meditation, mindfulness (the difference) and how to meditate.

The habit of meditating is a profound ability I was introduced to 3 years ago.

I’ll give you my opinion on it today and give you the run down on how to do it yourself.

I’m not some spiritual woo-woo guy. I’m more of a practical dude, so I’m interested in the practical ramifications of meditation.

I have done it consistently for 20 minutes every day for the last 2 years now and I’ve learned a lot about both the practice of meditation and the manifold of benefits it can have for the mind and body.

Well, why do it? What’s the logic behind it?

It can reduce stress in your life and allow you to relax.

By practicing mindful meditation this state of mind transfers to every moment in your life and every experience brought to you.

Those few brief moments of meditating allow you to have a greater grounding and feeling of presence throughout your experiences.

As a result, the time needed is little in retrospect to the profound rewards you gain.

Now to begin – focus on your breathing.

Listen and feel your breath as it comes through your nose. Follow it, pretend your breath is an animated object, walk behind it, see where it’s going. Try to follow it through every stage of its entry into your lungs, first from the air coming in through your nose, down your body.

Try to get a sense for how it fills you with energy and vitality. Again on the exhale, follow it out of your body as you push it out towards the world.

You are trying grounding yourself so close to the present moment that over time this act becomes second nature. A state of consciousness you can tap into anytime.

To conclude, becoming proficient at meditation allows your conscious thought processes to rest for a brief moment in time allowing you to let go of your ego.

Give it a go. You’re not going to become some hippy. You’ll just live a more grounded, present life, as a more spiritually aware human.

There really are no downsides to meditation.

  1. happiness from within, no consumism, no pills, no buy this or that to feel certain ways, no bullshit, im at a point in my life where i was looking for stuff like this, imma try to make of meditation a habit, thanks, Philip.

  2. Apps like Headspace and Calm are popular and trendy atm, but you don't need a subscription app to do it. Insight Timer is, IMHO the best meditation timer app available for both iPhone and Android. It's free and has a standalone timer as well as countless guided meditation tracks by well known teachers. However you can use a kitchen timer or whatever. If someone tells you the only way to learn to meditate "properly" is to pay them either one time or as subscription run as fast as possible I'm the opposite direction.

  3. This is a hot topic right now. For the last 72 hours I've started using Headspace. It's guided which I find brilliant. Feel clear and present, already feeling the benefits.

    loved the quote 'All we have in this life is right now' – made me think

  4. hey, Can you name your favourite book, one that's really had an impact on your life and you stand by. Thanks, just looking for a new book to read. 🙂

  5. Thanks for a insightful video ! I particularly enjoyed the tone and the way you articulated the concepts, just as a friend or a well-wisher. Simple and easy to follow along. You've certainly found a subscriber in me. I will be beginning work very soon while living alone, so definitely will incorporate meditation into my daily routine. My future self will be contacting you in the future, hopefully extolling the benefits I've found 🙂 !

  6. So I have a question. Let's say I achieve this "mindful" mindset and am always thinking in the present……then how do I go about planning things, such as what I need to get done tomorrow, or at the gym, or after work, etc? My guess is that it's about finding a balance of being in the present and planning for the future, and being able to have enough self awareness and self control to take yourself in and out of a mindful state as you please, but I wanted to see what you had to say about that. Thanks!

  7. Hey, saw your video on reddit. I like your message and you deliver it with composure and have a nice calm and friendly tone I hope to see more and hope to practice mindfulness and presence with you. +1 subscriber
