I’ve found that meditation has helped keep me centered and my days balanced. Mediation can be as simple as being still and recalling one thing that happened in your day you are grateful for, to in depth concentrated meditation sessions in your designated meditation area.
The modern day world is designed to make your mind comfortable and stimulated in its busyness. When your mind becomes still, a deep happiness and contentment rises from within, and you can tune out the chaos while responding to this busyness differently. Meditation is used to remind us that you can control your mind. Meditation can help you find the peace, awareness, and confidence you are seeking.
You are merely speaking to the higher power deep inside of you.
The benefits of meditation are endless:
My Meditation Regimen
If any thoughts or distractions enter your mind, just breathe them away. I always like to keep a mental note of the things that pop into my mind to become aware of my current distractions and lingering feelings. Release any of the thoughts that enter your mind. Continue this for 5-10 minutes or until you feel complete calmness.
Once you reach total calmness, open your eyes and simply sit there for half a minute… savoring your body’s sensations.
Bonus: Morning Productivity Hack
In those 5 minutes when you lay in your bed after you hit snooze (we all have them), practice a 5 minute mediation, and focus your mind briefly on one thing you want to accomplish that day. In addition, visualize your goals being accomplished.
