Meditation FAQs

Q. How can I keep my mind "empty"? 
A. "By not running away from thoughts that come up," says meditation expert Rodney Yee.
"Just sit with it," he says. "You might have your own little conversation inside your head about it, like, 'There I go again; I'm thinking about what I did yesterday, and I'm supposed to be just sitting here and watching my breath.' But that doesn't mean you have to go anywhere with that thought."

Take yogi Kate Hanley's advice and treat that thought like a bad boyfriend.

Q. Do I have to sit cross-legged to meditate?

Not at all. In fact, you don't even have to sit — you can walk, or sit in a chair, or sit any number of ways that are conducive to quieting the banter in your brain without getting distracted by fallen-asleep extremities. It IS best not to lie down, since you're more likely to get some Zzzs than clock any meditation minutes.

Q. What is walking meditation?

"Walking meditation is a way to practice moving without a goal or intention," writes Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh in his book Ten Exercises For Well-Being. "Mindful walking simply means walking while being aware of each step and of our breath. It can be practiced anywhere, whether you are alone in nature or with others in a crowded city ... even between appointments. Placing our footsteps one after the other slowly and in silence, we can create joy with each step. Walking meditation can release our sorrows and worries and help bring peace into our bodies and minds, improve your healthy life, bring strong health tomorrow."

Yee says walking meditation is a more advanced form of meditation and, for some, a less optimal form than seated meditation. "Of course, for someone who can't sit still," he concedes, "walking may be better. Ideally, I like to teach people how to sit quietly, because many will have the best benefit from that."
