The 5 Minute Meditation That Changed Her Life

This Meditation Can Change Your Life

For those that suffer from anxiety disorders, life is a daily challenge. Medications don’t always work, and even when they do, their effectiveness does not last long. There’s also side effects to be concerned with. For some, this struggle is so bad that even minor things like talking a walk, can trigger severe reactions.

While all of the above sounds terrible, there is hope for those not ready to give up on fighting anxiety.

Mediation is usually about clearing your mind, but sometimes even the thought of clearing your mind can make you anxious. Instead, the technique discussed in the following article is a form of meditation that doesn’t require you to think.

Check out this amazing technique below and be sure to share this with your friends that could use some help overcoming anxiety.

The 5 minute meditation that changed my life

step 1.

Set a timer for 5 minutes.

step 2.

Lay on a flat, comfortable surface. The edge of a bed works well. That way, your feet can remain flat on the floor.

step 3.

Put one hand on your stomach, and one hand on your chest. Close your eyes.

step 4.

Slowly inhale deeply, focusing on breathing so deeply that you feel your stomach rise. Continue to inhale until you feel that your lungs are like balloons full of air, ready to pop, and your stomach is has risen substantially. Count to 10 as you inhale, striving to reach a total of 10 counts per inhale.

step 5.

SLOWLY exhale, allowing all breath to exit from your lungs and feeling your stomach as it too returns to resting state. Count to 10 as you exhale too, striving to reach a total of 10 counts per exhale. This is even more important in exhalation, as we tend to exhale far more quickly than we inhale.

step 6.

Focus on this inhalation and exhalation pattern for the next 5 minutes, particularly paying attention to feeling the breath fill up the emptiness starting from your stomach. Use your stomach as a gauge. Remember to count as you inhale and as you exhale – trying to reach 10 counts in each inhale and in each exhale.

Repeat this meditation twice a day, once in the morning and once at night.

To your health and wellness!
