10 MINUTE GUIDED MEDITATION FOR ANXIETY

Meditation is a practice that has been used for centuries. There are many different varieties of meditation, but the main goal no matter what style you select is simply to observe. When you’re meditating it’s an opportunity to take a moment out of the hustle and bustle of your usual day-to-day routine and observe your own thoughts, notice your breath, experience the sensations of the world around you. It’s an effective technique that provides both short and long term benefits.

By taking time to slow down and tune in more deeply with yourself, many guided meditation practitioners will feel calm and peaceful afterwards. A regular meditation practice can bring meditators a better connection to their emotions and more awareness of their bodies. Those who meditate consistently will also often find that they enjoy a decrease in anxiety, less stress, and sometimes better sleep and general health.

However, with the goal being to simply observe how you feel, it’s completely normal if you don’t feel peaceful after meditation! Sometimes emotions or thoughts that have been suppressed will begin to arise during meditation, as we allow them space to surface. That’s why it can be helpful to have a guide as you begin your meditation journey. Your guided meditation practitioner can help you to enter your meditation without any expectations of having a specific experience. Show More >>>
