Meditation is practice of focusing on your breath and listing to your inner soul A five-minute meditation can help you reap similar benefits as longer practices. Here's how to do it.
Better mental health
Doing a short meditation before bed can help relax your body and mind, which can lead to a better night's sleep
Regular meditation helps you become more aware of your own ideas, feelings, and physical experiences.
Choose a Quiet Place
Find a place in your home where you won't be bothered easily. It could be a part of a room, a cosy spot, or a quiet spot outside.
Create a relaxing atmosphere by adding things like soft lighting, calming smells, and comfy pillows or a meditation pillow
Fill your meditation space with things that mean something to you, like gems, lights, or artwork that inspires you.
Find a comfortable place to sit and close your eyes. Deeply breathe in through your nose and let your belly grow. Slowly let out your breath through your lips and feel the stress leave your body.
Take a deep breath in for four counts, hold it for four counts, and then let it out slowly for four counts. Focus on the flow of your breath as you repeat this process several times.
Thus, just five minutes a day, you can start a journey that will change your life and bring you peace and happiness.
