Relax with Meditation

Meditation is a great way to slow a busy mind. It has been shown to reduce stress and overeating, encourage a sense of calm and empathy, and have a positive impact on your overall health.

Benefits of meditating

A consistent practice in meditation can help you stay emotionally balanced and increase immunity to illnesses. Here are a few other benefits of meditation:

  1. Reduces anxiety, stress, and tension
  2. Helps regulate blood pressure
  3. Enhances energy and strength
  4. Builds self confidence

Simple steps to meditate

  1. Find a quiet spot to sit. As you become more experienced, it will be easier for you to meditate in hectic situations or busy environments.
  2. Get settled in a comfortable position. Traditionally, meditation is done with your legs crossed, but you can choose to be in any position that is comfortable.
  3. Close your eyes and focus on your breathing. Breathe in deeply and exhale slowly, focusing on your body as it fills and releases your breath.
  4. Find a focal point. Focusing your attention on an object or repeating a specific phrase can help you to relax. If your mind wanders, don’t worry—redirect your thoughts to deep breathing or your object of focus.
  5. Choose a length of time to meditate. You can meditate for as long as you like. The goal is to bring about a sense of calm and awareness to your body and mind.
