These Hand Gestures Will Help Set Your Mind At Ease
Sometimes we are so busy with our daily lives, that we forget to take a step back and take in our surroundings. Meditation is great way to reflect on the past, present, and future while setting your mind at ease. The problem with meditation is that is can be challenging for those of us that can’t seem to turn our brains off when needed and quiet our thoughts for more than a few minutes.
The good news is that there are ways to help us focus on our current state of mind while keeping us relaxed. Enter mudras. Mudras are symbolic hand gestures that you can use to show your intentions. The following article describes some mudras you can to refocus yourself while practicing meditation or when you feel you are losing control of your mind.
