Meditation

Now I know some of you are thinking meditation…really… But I am here to tell you that meditation takes on many different forms and that even for the skeptic there is a form of meditation for you!

Meditation can range from active and verbal methods such as chanting, all the way to quietly sitting and calming your mind. I encourage you to try various types of meditation until you find one that works for you. Even if you meditate for 5 minutes a day, you will be getting all of the benefits of this practice.

In meditation, you experience a state of restful awareness in which your body is resting deeply while your mind is awake though quiet. In the silence of awareness, the mind lets go of old patterns of thinking and feeling and learns to heal itself. Scientific research on meditation is accelerating with the growing awareness of meditation’s numerous benefits, including a decrease in hypertension, heart disease, anxiety, depression, insomnia, and addictive behaviors.

If you need help learning how to meditate or need additional tips on how to incorporate  this into your daily life please contact me at 4pillarcoaching@gmail.com.
