Meditation is an excellent way to ease stress, sleep better, calm anxiety, and live healthier in general. During guided meditation you listen to a trained individual – either in person, or a recording – walk you through meditation. It’s an excellent way to get started with meditation and hopefully it will be a part of your everyday routine.
Meditation has shown to be very powerful and beneficial. Just 10 minutes a day can help you focus, increase self-awareness, and even increase your overall happiness. I have started to meditate regularly and have begun my morning with short sessions, when I am feeling a little wired at night or I am stressing about something, I will do another short session to help me fall asleep, and sometimes I will meditate after yoga while I am already relaxed and peaceful.
To get started, here are some Free Resources and Guided Meditation Apps:
