Practicing mindfulness is one of the easiest and most effective way to manage stress and anxiety. Here are 3 incredible meditation techniques that help you slow down your mind, get rid of negativity, relax the body and obtain freedom from worries.
Simply sit in silence and visualize yourself floating above the issue causing anxiety or the conflict. It allows you to look at the issue from above and gives you a much wider perspective. In most cases, people realize the futility of worrying or getting anxious about it.
Sit comfortably in a quiet area and focus inward. Notice your breathing pattern without trying to change it. If you notice your attention wandering, bring your attention back to your breath. Focusing on your breath tends to deepen the breath and as the breath deepens, the body relaxes and the mind becomes calmer.
Acknowledge your Thoughts
As you meditate, anxious and negative thoughts may pop up. Do not suppress these thoughts but acknowledge them. Practicing observation of uncomfortable thoughts helps you stop reacting to them. With time, your anxiety decreases and you experience more inner peace.
Whenever you finish a meditation, take time to come out of your meditation gradually. Do not rush. Slowly stretch your body and take time to reflect on your practice.
