There are many types of meditation.
While I'm testing out vedic meditation, there are countless different kinds of meditation styles to consider. My experience was (and continues to be) a positive, opening, rewarding experience, but it's all about what works for you.
"I've tried different meditations, like a pranayama, which is like a breathing technique. It’s very effective but very, very difficult and hard to stick with. You can go to the retreat in the Blue Mountains, it’s a 10 day retreat and you’re not allowed to speak much, you’re not allowed to move much. It’s pretty austere. If you stick to it for a few days, you break through and have a wonderful, lovely opening experience and you come back and you’ll feel good for probably a few weeks but to keep it going you need to invest about two hours a day, which isn't realistic for many," Matt said.
"Then you’ve got these phone apps and guided meditations which take you to a nice, relaxed place. They can be a great introduction to meditation, but a lot of people find they grow out of them as they get a taste of something but feel there is more out there and want to explore it further. There’s also mindfulness meditation, which is another technique that some people love," he explained.
My personal experience of meditation has been eye-opening and worthwhile. While I can't say my life has changed (yet), I'm noticing little changes that keep encouraging me to stick with this.
