A letter to my mind

Dear mind,

Why are you always thinking?

Why won’t you be silent?

Why are you always giving me warning signs

giving me fear

giving me doubt

telling negative things to me?

I know is your job

to keep me safe

to warn me when I am trying to do something unusual

but

I need you to know that

It’s time for me to get out of my comfort zone

it’s time for me to fly

it’s time for me to grow

will you be my friend?

will you walk together with me

to this new path

new experience

new place?

will you be my friend?

I promise you we will be alright.

Please trust me

will you corporate?

will you?

 

 

 

 

Beginner’s Guide to Meditation

Hello Guys. I’m sure you heard about mediation before. Interested but not sure where to start? I would like to share a bit about meditation based on my knowledge and experience.

Before I go ahead, here are some of the benefits of meditation:

  • Lower blood pressure
  • Improved blood circulation
  • Lower heart rate
  • Reduces anxiety
  • Reduces stress.
  • It improves concentration
  • It encourages a healthy lifestyle
  • The practice increases self-awareness
  • It increases happiness
  • Meditation increases acceptance
  • Can Generate Kindness

So let’s get started, here are the tips:

  1. Start small – Start by practising for two minutes for first two days then day by day increase it to five minutes, fifteen minutes then twenty minutes. Grow slowly. Take one step ahead.
  2. Choose the type of meditation that suits you. You may choose guided meditation or unguided meditation. In guided meditation, the teacher usually will guide you on what to do, think and feel. In unguided meditation, you will be listening to calming and relaxing music. Go and search for mediation videos/ audios online( There is a lot of videos on Youtube) or you can even download meditation apps such as Calm, Headspace, Omvana)meditation-music
  3. Find a comfortable position. You may sit on your bed with legs crossed or on a chair with your legs firmly on the ground. Make sure you are sitting still with your back straight.
  4. Find time – Morning is the best time to meditate. Do it first thing in the morning just after you wake up. There is when you brain is in Alpha stage, you will be able to concentrate better at this time. If you are not able to do it in the morning, don’t worry…try to find two to five minutes on your day to practice it. During your day, be present, take a moment to just bring back your focus on your breath. You may do it while you are on the train or bus, during lunch break or in the evening after you are back home.business-woman-meditating-chair-flare-against-blurry-white-window-digital-composite-91276403
  5. Commit– Commitment is really important. Keep on trying. Sometimes you might feel lazy or think ” it’s too hard!”. Don’t quit. “All things are hard at first, messy in the middle and gorgeous at the end”  Even when you feel like you are not doing it right, its okay, just keep on going, even if you are able to concentrate for two to five minutes, it’s still an achievement. Remember, you don’t have to be perfect.
  6. Jornal – Write down your experiences. Analyze yourself, be aware and see if you can see any difference in yourself. Observe on how you feel and behave, then write it down so you can remember it and surely you will get a motivation to practice meditation more. ( you are surely gonna like it)maxresdefault

Good Luck!

So that’s it. Small tips for me. Hope you like it. 🙂
