With regular practice, meditation can also help you gain a deeper awareness of your inner self. What is that? It is our spiritual sense, our soul sense, our emotions and our intellect. There is even some evidence that meditation changes your brain — enlarging areas of brain tissue that help us think and learn... while decreasing areas that cause us stress and anxiety.
Have you meditated today? It’s super simple. With the right guidance, one can begin a few minutes at a time. This shouldn’t be another thing to add to the never ending to-do list. It is a choice, and a good one at that.
Sit down comfortably: breathe in, breathe out. One need not even close his or her eyes if that is triggering in any way. A soft and consistent gaze is perfectly fine. I meditate 2 minutes before any client I train, in my car, before exiting the vehicle. It sets me up to help them in a more selfless way, rather than getting my ego involved.
There are so many free apps and websites with wonderful meditation options. I like to slowly see numbers float in front of my eyelids, 1-10 and reverse back to 1.
Try it and see how your life may benefit and also those whose lives you touch!
