So, why is everyone talking about meditation? A regular meditation practice helps alleviate anxiety, stress and fuzzy brain. It also helps you get better quality (and quantity) sleep. Plus it eases pain: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.
Plus its risk-free and inexpensive. Portable and easy also comes to mind. Curious?
But what is Meditation?
Long thought of as some kind of esoteric, hippy practice. Meditation has a lot of people scared off. But it’s mind concentration. Focus. And everyone can benefit from the practice.
As you’ve subscribed, you have access to a couple of self-hypnosis meditations that I’ve gifted you along the way. The Ten Minute Break is a form of meditation. Where you follow instructions and focus on releasing tension and breathing.
Simple. And the more often you do it, the easier it gets to go into the ‘relaxation zone.’
However, there’s lots of ways to meditate.
And I’m a big fan of changing things up. So, I also use chanting, listening to chants, and a whole heap of different breath work. In fact, right now I’m doing a 40 day self challenge to Gain Inner Peace. It involves mudra (hand position), breath and the diaphragm. A simple chant and an abdominal exercise.
As you can image as you focus on getting that all right, you don’t have time to worry about the world health crisis or even what to have for breakfast!
And it simply starts with 3 minutes. I will of course build up to longer.
Then I lie down for a further 3 minutes and relax.
5 days in and I started to notice a difference. Seriously. I’m not getting as upset and when I do wing out (as we all do) I’m back to calmness much more quickly.
If you’d like to join me and give it a whirl, send me an email to let me know and I’ll send instructions.
In the meantime, if a guided journey in your mind appeals, go here for two more free meditations.
