This free guided meditation works with breath counting, allowing you to focus your mind, leading you to a deep state of relaxation. During meditation it is normal for your mind to wander. When you notice your mind wandering, simply acknowledge your thoughts and then come back to your breath.
Please ensure you are sitting or lying comfortably before you begin this meditation. Start by closing your eyes. Relax and take a few slow, deep breaths into your abdomen. Feel the tension in your body dissipate and notice how the muscles in your face, jaw and shoulders start to relax.
Focus your attention on your breath count, allowing you to eventually exclude other ‘chatter’ in your mind. Your mind will eventually quieten, leaving stress and other thoughts behind, which will allow you to enter a state of deep relaxation.
There are many benefits to practicing meditation regularly including:
- reduction in stress
- improved circulation and oxygenation in the body
- improved immune function
- decreases pain and inflammation
- improved sleep.
This is an excellent meditation to practice after a stressful day at work, or before bed. Enjoy!
