Use Meditation and Relaxation to Accomplish Tons More Each Day

Whenever you hear the word ‘meditation,’ you know that it will be followed shortly thereafter by ‘relaxation.’ These terms are like two peas in a pod. In order to relieve the stress and anxiety levels in your life, you need to learn how to effectively relax and unwind.  And if you are a regular practitioner of meditation, then it’s like you possess the golden ticket to Relaxationville.

Let’s talk about HOW you can use Meditation and Relaxation:

Now, you might be thinking, “I already have such a tightly cramped schedule. How could I possibly make time to meditate?” Well, think of it this way: when you are relaxed, both your body and brain are able to work more efficiently, thus allowing you to accomplish more in your day.

Use Meditation and Relaxation

You might believe that when you have a ton on your plate it’s better to just go-go-go like a steam engine, trying to plow though everything. However, when you adopt this type of word horse mentality, you are much more like to crash and burn.

Therefore, it is always recommended that you take time to relax because a calm and peaceful mindset will enable you to cope with a hectic lifestyle much more efficiently. And what better way to relax than with meditation!

When practiced on a regular basis (ideally twice a day, once in the morning and once again at night), meditation can afford you with so many benefits, both physically and emotionally.

For starters, meditation has been proven to lower anxiety levels, relieve mild forms of depression, and decrease blood pressure. Moreover, meditation can leave you feeling refreshed, having restored your energy levels so you are able to continue tackling the challenges of your day.

Let’s try a quick meditation exercise right now…

What I want you to do is lie down on the ground with your arms placed at your sides (make yourself feel as comfortable as possible). Now, we’re going to start at the bottom (your feet) and work our way up to your head, moving systematically from your feet, to your calves, to your thighs, to your hips, etc.

As you work your way up, visualize each area of your body, one at a time, dissolving into the ground beneath you. Maintain focus on your breath during this process. Your breathing should have slowed down and become regulated.

Continue visualizing each section of your body until they have all dissolved into the ground, and along with them, your worries and anxieties.

And that’s it!

Meditation can be as quick and simple as that. You don’t need to devote tons of time each day to meditation; 10-15 minutes will suffice and you will still be able to reap its full benefits.

So what are you waiting for? Stop allowing stress to consume your life. Take charge of your relaxation with plenty of wonderful meditation.

That being said, she doesn’t always remember to meditate… … and is working on practicing more often. She finds that guided meditations help a lot, though. It can be really difficult to get still yourself, so having someone point you in the direction you want to take is priceless. When not meditating, Rachel has several other passions. Her interests range from reading, traveling, belly dancing, psychology, yoga, Toastmasters, and everything in between.
