5 WAYS YOU CAN MEDITATE

Firstly lets start with why meditation is good for you?

Meditation has been shown to have numerous benefits for both physical and mental health. It can help reduce stress, improve focus and concentration, increase feelings of well-being, and even lower blood pressure. Regular meditation practice has also been linked to improvements in sleep and immune function.




So there are some great reasons to add meditation into you're life, but I hear you shout you don't have the time and I feel you I really do, as a women that runs her own business, is a mother of 5 and runs the household too.


If you have time to breathe you have time to meditate. You breathe when you walk. You breathe when you stand. You breathe when you lie down.

5 ways to Meditate



I would love to say it's as easy to just empty you're mind, but to be honest it's never been my experience when teaching people to meditate that emptying your mind works, the mind wants somewhere to go, and if you're like me then its the 100 things you've got to get done for the week, so here are 5 ways that you can help with meditation if you only have 5 mins or you have 30mins, it doesn't matter.



1- Traditional Sitting or lying down, relaxing with your eyes closed, listerning to music.

2- As above but if you have trouble with focus or visualization then try a guided meditation.

3- Active Meditation, two for the price of one here, as exercise stimulates chemicals in the brain that make you happy, and even better if you go outside in nature thats a triple happy mind, body and spirit experience, walking or dancing where you let go and just be in the moment, you're just letting the mind take a dive into nature, or music or the exercise, if you're walking then really take notice of where you are, each little flower or stone, this is a form of meditation.

4. A personal favourite of mine, does take more time, unless you do a doddle I suppose, yep it's meditation with Art, painting, drawing, any crafts, again it's letting go and being in the moment and your sole focus is the art, I know I can get lost for awhile with creative energy.

5. And finally a very focused meditation, light a candle and watch the flame, watch it dance and play, I would say this is a 5 minute meditation, and one suggestion would be to have soft focus, don't have the flame to close to you.
