What Are the Benefits of Morning Meditation?

While there is no “right” time of day to meditate, as it really is a matter of personal preference, there are certain benefits that go along with practicing meditation at certain times of day as opposed to others, and in this article, we are going to discuss the benefits of morning meditation.

It is all too often that you hear people discussing the amount of stress that they have in their lives, whether it is due to their work, children, money issues, lack of free time, etc. In our society, we seem to believe that the busier you are, the more productive you are, and in the United States, a strong work ethic is highly valued. However, there does come a point when a line is crossed, and a work ethic that just keeps pushing and pushing simply becomes too much.  Excessive “busyness” can start to take a toll on your health and well-being if you are not mindful.

In general, we tend to try to speed up as much as we can instead of trying to slow down, gather our thoughts, and reconnect with ourselves. One of the best ways to do that is to take 10-15 minutes each day when you first wake up to practice morning meditation. Practicing meditation first thing in the morning is a great way to start your day because you are getting yourself into a relaxed state of mind right off the bat, which will help you to better handle any stresses that the day throws your way.

There are so many benefits to practicing morning meditation.

And some of these benefits include the following: stress and anxiety relief, decreased blood pressure, enhanced immune system, and an improved ability to concentrate and focus. Morning meditation involves the internal process of coaching your brain to bring both your mind and body into a state of total relaxation so that you can achieve a heightened sense of awareness, or consciousness.

Morning meditation is very simple to do, yet many people tend to resist it because the act of not doing something or remaining still and relaxed are concepts that seem totally foreign to them, as we have been conditioned into thinking that we must go, go, go all the time. All you have to do to practice meditation is sit alone with yourself for 10-15 minutes, away from distractions and other people, and breathe deeply. You can listen to relaxing sounds from nature or the soothing narration of a guided meditation recording too if you would like.

An important thing to note about morning meditation, however, is that you should try to perform it at around the same time each morning and do it on a daily basis too so that it becomes a habit, as much as brushing your teeth or taking a shower. If you practice it on a regular basis, before you know it, you will start to see noticeable improvements being made to the way that you think, feel, and act in your everyday life.

She started meditating a few years ago, while living in Brazil, and has REALLY enjoyed the benefits of meditation since then. With regular meditation, Rachel reports feeling more calm, at peace, relaxed… and having a greater sense of “knowing”. 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.
