The Benefits of Meditation
THE BENEFITS OF MEDITATION
Given the current circumstances you may find yourself having to spend time alone.
For many, this can be extremely difficult given our lives are filled with constant distraction. If we can make time to quiet the mind, be still and reconnect to self, the benefits are truly remarkable.
Have you been with yourself lately?
HOW DO I MEDITATE?
Find a quiet space
Set a timer for five minutes
Sit in a comfortable position
Open your eyes, drop your gaze and focus on one spot
Inhale through your nose, exhale through your mouth
Feel how the breathing pattern affects your body and your thoughts
Imagine your mind filling up with the sky
Every time a thought comes in, don’t attach to it, let your thoughts come and go and come back to your breath. Continue to focus on your breathing.
Slowly increase your meditation time by five minutes.
Meditation can be challenging at first, give yourself time, be patient and don’t give up.
Learn to be with yourself
