Hey beautiful people! Today is day 7 of #HealthyMindYoga 😪😴and we're bringing a basic meditation, which is focusing on the breath.Just by doing breathing #meditation for ten or fifteen minutes each day, we will be able to reduce this stress. We will experience a calm, spacious feeling in the mind
First thing is: what to do with your body. You can choose the traditional seated position, seated with your back against a wall, lying down flat on the mat/bed or even this variation I show on the video.
Just keep in mind your spine should be straight and you need to be able to #breathe with no effort and feel comfortable.
So, today I invite you to close your eyes for 5 minutes, in a quiet place (or with a good meditation song) and breathe. Focus on your breath. Just observe - don't change. Let the breath happen naturally and just focus on it. See it coming and going, see it entering your nose, your throat, your chest and belly, and making all the way out. If any thought comes to your mind, DON'T BLOCK THEM! This is important!! When you try to block a thought, it gets stuck and you can't get rid of it. Don't block, but don't give atention. Look, observe, and let it go. Let things come and then let them go.
One important thing when dealing with meditation is to stop the practice when your mind is still enjoying it. So what you can do if you'd like is to set a timer to go off after 5 minutes (choose an slow song so you don't freak when it rings) or meditate listening to a song with 5-6 minutes, so you know when you've done 5 minutes of the exercise. When you've practiced it a few times start increasing to 6, 7, 10 minutes, really slowly.
