Burned out from your 9-5? Ready to get past mental & emotional blocks? Just want to get out of that funk? Ready to start seeing & feeling changes in life?
It is the nature of our mind to think all day long. Meditation helps us to understand the nature of our thoughts as simply thoughts and our relationship to them, so that our thoughts can be more at our service rather than the other way around.
How To Improve Your Life With Meditation
A recent study published by Biological Psychiatry indicated that mindfulness meditation can change the brain and potentially improve health.
Throughout the past decade, meditation has done wonders in maintaining peace and balance. The longer I practice, the better I am at tapping into my intuition when making tough choices in life.
In the past, tried everything but kept feeling stuck, overwhelmed, and hopeless. In the midst of anxiety and bouts of depression, I kept changing jobs, moving locations…yet nothing seemed to work.
Here’s what happened at one of my lowest points in life…
Broke up with a guy that I was set on marrying…ended my work contract a year early because I couldn’t stand the job…unfortunately, the list goes on.
When it rains, it pours right?! Ugh!
But, while life was falling apart, I was able to manifest milestone breakthroughs like crazy! Life was chaotic but that didn’t mean I had to stay at rock bottom.
I tapped into my intuition to gain clarity and thrived in the silver linings of all the challenges.
How? Incorporating daily meditation into my mornings and energy work.
So, how can you start meditating to improve your life?
With a busy schedule and a busier mind, taking the time to meditate may be tricky. However, five minutes of practice can be as effective as an hour.
The sincerity of the effort matters far more than elapsed time since meditation is about stepping out of minutes and hours and into moments.
1. Start Small
So if you can only manage one minute of mindfulness, that is great! It means you have already remembered the value to stopping and shifting even momentarily from doing to being.
2. Try Walking
Now, meditating does not mean you have to sit still. Walking meditations are just as beneficial! So go out in nature and just be. No music, no iPhone. Just be.
3. Don’t Worry If your Mind Wanders
Also, meditating does not mean you have to somehow make your mind blank. If your mind wanders, that’s natural. All you have to do is bring the attention back to your breath each time.
4. Make It a Habit
Meditation, among many other types of energy work, certainly helps with focus and improving intuitive abilities. The more you practice meditating, the easier it becomes to hear your inner voice, your intuition.
May your days be balanced with relaxing and renewing activities!
