Say goodbye to the days of underwhelming meditation due to that dastardly wandering mind. Here is a quick guide to meditate properly and constructively! The best part? It only takes five minutes!
The right environment for meditation
Begin by shutting your eyes. There should only be complete and peaceful darkness. Shift your focus away from the ponderings of your mind and towards the very essence of your breath
How to start meditating
Breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth, slowly inhaling and slowly exhaling. Most importantly, allow your body to have a mini vacation; this time is meant for the body to care for itself.
Your guide to meditation
Once you feel in control, visualize the happy little things that you derive joy from in life. This can be anything from the crackling sound of soda to your little brother’s smile. Then think of ways that you will intentionally reward yourself. This calm, curated future planning should help decrease your stress levels.
Feel the impact
Finally, recompose your breathing patterns and focus and slowly open your eyes. You’re welcome! Now you should be all set to take five minutes out of your day to eliminate or at least curb any stress that may come your way. Use this quick guide to meditation to wash away the day’s stress. Best of luck!
