Relaxing can be a challenge at times, sometimes there is just to much to do and if you stop now will you get moving again? Residual fatigue can be a symptom of the having an afternoon nap, or a veg out on the couch. That’s why it can surprise you to know that having the right methods of relaxation and meditation can replenish and restore your energy
Regular light sessions of basic meditation can be highly beneficial to your wellbeing. Even if it just for two minutes a day, clearing your mind of current thoughts and worries can be hugely beneficial to your physical health and self-perception. Ongoing meditation has been proven to decrease brain cell volume in the Amygdala – the area responsible for producing anxiety, fear and stress.
Firstly find a convenient and quiet spot.
Breathe naturally and easily and feel each inhalation and exhalation placing your hands on your abdomen, you should feel your stomach rise instead of your chest. Do your best to clear your mind and try to think of nothing. If you find thoughts and worries easily creeping back in, except them and let them go again
Effective meditation does take some practice.
Letting your mind wander
Walking meditation is indeed a thing and another good way to start practicing meditation, especially if you’re one of those people who have trouble sitting still. Put the headphones away and go for a walk, keeping your focus on your feet. Pay attention to each step you take and the way your feet are connecting with the ground, feel the texture beneath them.
Listen to the sound they make on the grass or concrete.
The key is to keep your focus on something other than your own thoughts to give your mind a break.
