A TEN MINUTE GUIDED MEDITATION TO HELP ALLEVIATE STRESS AND FIND FOCUS
With the long weekend within very visible reach today here in the UK I'm sure many of us are looking forward to logging off and forgetting about work for a few well-rested days. But what happens when you just can't switch off? When your mind is still swimming with thoughts of many things that need to be done, when messages and emails keep on pinging through on that inordinate mobile phone, when the lure of social media keeps you constantly alert and on your toes? Well sometimes we all need to just take a few peaceful minutes to refocus...
Today I wanted to share with you a very simple, ten minute guided meditation that anyone under pressure can simply sit and absorb right here and right now to help them feel more grounded. I honestly don't believe that you need any prior knowledge or experience of mindfulness or indeed the many types of meditation in order to take this ten minutes for yourself and gain great benefit.
For today, the day before a long weekend when no further stress or pressure is going to be needed by anyone, I don't want to share a long and fact filled post about stress or the many benefits of mindfulness and meditation. There will be more of that to come on this space over time anyway so never fear! I simply wish to share this quick guided practice that I've personally been loving so much in the last few weeks. If you can spare just ten minutes today, or at some point over this weekend, to sit still, close your eyes and experience this then you may just feel a teeny little bit of that stress and those nagging thoughts dispersing. Even if it's just for a short time, it's still got to be worth a try hasn't it?
