Step 1: Background of Meditation
Meditation is thought to have originated in India over 4000 years ago. Buddha helped spread meditation throughout the east. From there it traveled across the world. Meditation is a powerful technique. With meditation you can think more clearly and creatively, "reboot" your brain, picture yourself scoring the winning goal thus building confidence, and practice conversations.
1-A quiet place to relax
2-Ability to get your body into a somewhat comfortable position
One and two aren't necessary but can help a beginner.
Step 2: Preparation
Hint: If you are to busy to meditate during the day you can take 5-10 minutes lying in bed practicing before you try to go to sleep.
