Do you often feel stressed, anxious or overworked throughout the day? The truth is, many of us typically do, and it often seems like there's no way to minimize it. But here's the thing -- there's actually something very quick and easy you can do first thing in the morning to help ease your mind and calm your heart - MEDITATION.
It may sound taboo to some, but a few minutes meditating in the morning can actually keep you extremely mindful and centered all day long. Before you knock it, why not give it a try? What do you have to lose after all? Here's what to do:
Locate a quiet and calm place to lie down
Lie on a flat surface and close your eyes
Place your right hand on your heart and left hand on your stomach
Breathe in through your nose and focus on feeling your left hand lift
As your breathe in think about the number one
Breathe out through your nose and think of a word
Breathe in again, this time thinking of the number two
Exhale through your nose and think of your chosen word
Continue this through number 10
This will help re-focus your mind and bring inner peace. Happy meditating!
