One has to find a peaceful place in their house to practice Raja Yoga meditation. Early morning is the best time considering there will be fewer internal and external distractions and one can have a happy mood for the rest of their day. One has to sit in a comfortable position on a chair or on the ground/floor.
One has to live in the present moment and keep their eyes open looking at a particular point in their room. No need to strain your eyes by staring too much but just keep the focus on. Once you reduce your negative thoughts of life then you can keep saying to yourself that you are at peace with yourself. Keep the peaceful state and ensure that you don’t sit for a longer period of time. Meditation is all about doing nothing and thinking nothing, and it should last for not more than half to one hour.
