Meditation is restorative mental focus training — it helps us to relax and recharge so that we can feel and function our best. Finding a balanced, comfortable seat is a great way to support yourself when you practice, and helps to reinforce balanced sitting — so important in general because we sit all the time! Sitting tall aligns your spine with its natural engineering, optimizes your breathing, and eases imbalances and related discomfort.
Use this practice to learn how to set yourself up for seated meditation and put it into context with a simple breath awareness meditation — strengthening your present moment focus and resetting not only your posture but also your nervous system and mental state.
