Meditation Tips: 9, 10

9. Make sure that your stomach is relatively empty: Do not meditate on a full stomach. When we meditate we can interfere with the process of digestion. Besides, meditating on a full stomach can make you sleepy. It is recommended that you wait 3 hours after a heavy meal before beginning your meditation practice.

10. Proper Posture: Meditations can be done sitting in a straight-backed chair, or on a cushion on the floor. Your back should be erect, but not strained. Your back should be away from the back of the chair or the wall. Your chest, neck and head need to be in a straight line. Your hands can be resting on your thighs, either palms downward for grounding, or palms upward in a gesture of receptivity.
