MEDITATION – HOW TO RELIEVE STRESS
You may think that taking time out of your already busy life to meditate is ridiculous, but it is actually the one thing that will absolutely help calm your nerves, which will help you relax enough to sit down and calmly work out the situation that is upsetting you.
I have found that I can relax and meditate by sitting and relaxing in a hot bubble bath. If you are worried about not having enough time for such pleasures as baths, maybe you can just go outside for a breath of fresh air and take time to just collect your thoughts. After everything has calmed down and you have managed to manage your tasks, you can then find the time to take a hot relaxing bath.
Find a way of meditation that will work for you
If you have kids and they are stressing you out, you know how easy it can be to lose your temper, so to make sure things never get out of control, always practice smooth breathing exercises. Let the kids go outside for a few minutes or maybe let them watch a movie or whatever they like to do within reason for a few minutes so that you can get your thoughts together for when meditating. Breathe in and out slowly and take time to think about what options you have to control the situation that has upset you. With having to deal with our children, our jobs, our relationships and our finances it’s a wonder that we can all even go on every day.
Find a way of meditation that will work for you and you will see that even if it’s for only a few minutes, that will be a few minutes you don’t have to worry about things. If you can’t get access to the internet to find ways to relax then simply go to the library in your local suburb/town. There will be many books on relaxation by meditation. When you are in a place like the library you can actually just relax in that environment where it is quiet and relaxing. Get yourself 2 or 3 books and find the one that will help you the most.
You can also write down notes from the books you read. Maybe check out a couple of books that talk about different ways of meditating and write down the chapters that interest you the most. Even if you start out by just learning how to have peace of mind, that is a very big accomplishment. After you have found peace of mind you can then start working on the daily things in your life that has left you feeling empty inside. Remember that you can always have the life you have dreamed of if you just take the time to learn ways to help yourself with relaxation techniques. You can find fulfillment in your life and defiantly make a difference in your life and the lives of others close to you who feel the pressures of every day life.
Whether you find meditation and relaxation techniques through books, tapes or even exercises, you will find that when your life is free of every day stress you can then start to find solutions to the many different problems in your life in a calm peaceful way.
You have to remember you are using your thoughts in your mind to meditate so you want to take the time to clear out all the negative feelings you have in your mind so that you can concentrate on how to improve your life and make a goal for yourself. Meditation can help. When you take the time to relax and really stop and think about things that are going on in your life by meditating, you can find solutions to many different things you question and don’t generally answer.
