I am launching very soon a series of posts talking about How to Meditate. That is my word this week. Meditate.
Lots of people dismiss meditation as a bit airy-fairy, a bit hippy, or something Buddhist Monks do, that takes a lifetime of training to ‘do’.
I have been teaching meditation and relaxation classes for over five years, and I hold a weekly class at my local cancer support centre, for sufferers and their supporters.
Meditaton is amazing! It is proven (I am afraid I can’t quote you the sources right now) to lower blood pressure, ease anxiety, improve general mood and well being, and increase your abilty to cope.
There are different types of meditation – and they do not need you to have an ‘empty’ mind, or take hours of your time, or costly training – you can meditate in ten minutes in your car (obviously not whilst driving!)
If you are curious, please keep an eye out for my series, it will definitely help you
