Meditation is the gift that keeps on giving. When your mind becomes still your breath deepens which brings a relaxing feeling to the physical body. Meditation assists in decreasing stress and opening up the mind to think more clearly. In addition, studies have showed that meditation lowers blood pressure, reduces blood sugar levels, increases circulation and improves mental health. When you begin to practice meditation you will move from the road of chaos to the road of peace.
Here are 5 short meditations that if done regularly will change your life:
1 - Next time you drive somewhere, sit in your parked car for 10 full breaths before going inside. Think “I am” as you inhale and “happy in this moment” as you exhale.
2 - Instead of singing along with the radio on your drive, say 10 nice things about yourself out loud, starting each item with “I am” – I am beautiful, I am strong, I am funny, I am creative… Start your list with a whisper and end it with a shout!
3 - Grab a pillow and set a timer for 4 minutes. Sit up nice and tall on your pillow and imagine your favorite vacation spot. Think of the smells, sounds, and sensations of everything in that spot.
4 - Close your eyes and hum in the shower. If your tone is high, slowly bring it down one note until your voice is as deep as it can get. If it’s low, make it higher and higher. Examine how each tone makes you feel. Find your favorite note and use that one to hum during your next meditation.
5 - Place your hand on your heart. Take 10 deep breaths. With each inhale, imagine someone you love. With each exhale, send them love straight from your heart. Can you feel the energy coming from your heart space?
