Meditation is good for the soul, for the whole body and your mind. Go indulge today!
If you want an all-out activity that is going to soothe every single part of you and your senses – go meditate!! It doesn’t have to be long, hard or full on. Meditation comes in all shapes and sizes – you just have to find the ones that fit.
A really easy meditation to do is mindfulness – this can be done anywhere – making dinner, washing the dishes, hanging the clothes out. All it asks you to do is be fully present in the moment, focusing on what you are doing, listening to the sounds around you and just being in that moment.
If you struggle with mind chatter, then guided meditation or ones where you need to chant may work for you as it helps to keep those natters to the background. I personally love going outside and focussing on the sounds around me.
The birds chattering, the distant sound of cars. Feeling the sun or breeze on my face, really helping to anchor me in my body as I take in those sensations. Not only does it bring your stress levels down, it allows your body to go into its optimum level for relaxation and healing. It gives your mind permission to take a break – although your mind will still have thoughts, so do not think you are doing it wrong just because it is still carrying on, it is its job.
Just allow them to flow without focussing on them. It brings your soul to the fore as well. So it is really the best all round exercise that you can possibly do for your wellbeing. Even if you think you are not a meditator – and my hand is up on this one. Keep at it and give yourself a few minutes every day, increasing if you can to get some of that deep AH into your day.
Your heart, body, soul and mind will thank you!
