MeditatioN: TrY It

Studies have shown that aside from reducing stress and boosting mood, meditation can ease chronic pain and improve your immune system.
De-Stress in Mere Minutes

In the shower
Face the water, letting it cascade onto your head. Take three deep, slow breaths. Pay attention to the sensation of the spray, the smell of your soap and shampoo, and the sound of water hitting the tub.

At your desk
Close your eyes and take five deep, relaxing breaths, emphasizing the exhale.

While walking
Pay attention to your stride for at least 10 minutes. By reconnecting to your body, you’ll arrive revived.

On your commute
Raise your eyebrows and hold for a count of three. Let it go and take a deep breath. Do this twice. (Don’t worry, the wrinkles won’t stay!) Repeat with each body part, tensing and relaxing your shoulders, your arms, moving downward along your body.

Stressed?

Never enough time in the day to get everything done eh?

Seek no more. Lower your blood pressure, breathe easier, relieve your insomnia and relax.

Today, my sweet friends, is a new day.
Let go of yesterday and yesteryear.

Don’t lose your precious self to what was or could have been.
Release the disappointment of unfulfilled dreams.
Let go of musings that torment your imagination.

Find and Embrace something profound in your existence.
Allow your breath to slowly flows into your lungs.

Breathe in the new day sweet friends.

    Yes meditation is good for us. If everyone practiced this the world “might” be a little bit of a better place and people a tad “kinder” – maybe?

  13. Winfred Mann says:

    Meditation is great. One of my favorites is to grab a lying MSM reporter by the throat, breath slowly in for a count of eight, and slowly out for the count of eight. Repeat it seven times! Then the source of my stress is gone; I feel relaxed, and am able to go about my day, refreshed.

    Thats how i feel right noe.

  20. Layla says:

    Have a great weekend hun and enjoy the time off with family – have lots of fun!!!

  21. Aurora says:

    Great pics as usual, Angel.
    Personally I enjoy a nice bath with candles and music. Prayer works as a destresser for me too.
    Thanks for the nice reminder.

  22. In_spired says:

    I like to think that prayer is ‘us’ talking to God. Meditation is when God talks to us. To be able to hear Him…yes, definitely, we need to put our selves in a mode of relaxation and rest. With the turmoil our world is in, this is the only way we’re going to save our sanity and keep our faith.

    Thanks for such an uplifting post, Angel.

    Meditation is good. But I worry that it’s becoming a pop culture thing. I read a few books by Buddhists to make sure I really got the idea before I personally tried it.
