These days we are all full of obligations, family commitments and work. But, let’s think for a moment, is there something else we can do for our self?
Have you ever tried to meditate? We recommend you to start by committing to a daily meditation practice of at least five minutes, and you’ll start to see positive changes in your life. This will help you to reduce stress in your everyday life. There are a lot of research studies that shows the benefits of meditation, like alleviate stress, anxiety, and lack of focus, plus offer increased creativity, better relationships, positivity, and longevity. Changing your life style with living a stress-free life, can help you to manifest more of what you want.
Some meditation practices do ask you to be in a crossed legged position and for a certain amount of time twice a day, while some suggest a teacher guide you. Meditation can be understand as a practice of concentrating on a single point of focus. The first step is to sit comfortably, with your spine tall and your hands on your knees. Focus on your breath or on a word or phrase known as a mantra – use something that speaks to you, such as peace, love, or compassion.
Don’t expect to see the results immediately and clear your mind completely. You should try to catch any distracting thoughts, acknowledge them, and don’t judge them. Just let them float away as you continue to focus on the present moment. Start to set a positive intention, such as: “I will be patient with my self and other’s today”, “meditation has reduced stress and anxiety in my own life”, “I have more compassion for myself as well as others”.
The best time for meditation is to be done in the morning, but also it will be beneficial for you to do it anytime you need it. You can meditate anywhere, as soon as you are able to close your eyes.
