Daily Short Meditations Packs a Big Punch
By Angela Artemis
By now everyone agrees that a practice of daily meditation is beneficial to your emotional, mental and physical health.
Benefits of meditation
The benefits of meditating run the gamut from cultivating inner peace; increasing contentment and joy; heightened feelings of control over emotions and reactions; reducing stress levels; helping to eliminate habits such as smoking; aids in weight loss; positively affects social relationships; faster rate of healing from disease, lowering blood pressure; boosting creativity to improving confidence, just to name a few. And, studies show that it takes only twenty hours of cumulative meditation to create lasting physical changes to the brain. These changes affect how we react to stress and increase our sense of peace and contentment.
Do you have trouble meditating?
But what if you're one of those people who has trouble meditating or are too busy to meditate? How can you get the benefits of daily mediation if you have an over active mind and cannot sit still long enough?
The best way to train your mind to be still and relax is to use guided meditations
Listening to guided meditations is a bit like using training wheels to learn how to ride a bicycle. You use the training wheels until you have improved balancing on your own and then you can remove them. By listening to a soothing narrator take you step by step through a meditation you slowly, over time develop the ability to reduce your thoughts and relax enough to do the meditation on your own.
When you listen to a guided meditation your mind is engaged in following the narrator's directions and when your mind is absorbed in listening, your own rate of thinking distracting thoughts ceases. And, prolonged and cumulative time spent in relaxation is the key that triggers the benefits of meditation.
Most guided meditations are too long
The problem beginning students of meditation encounter when using prerecorded meditations is that they find them to be too lengthy. It's difficult for busy people to make time to meditate as it is. Most guided meditations are twenty to forty minutes in length and this say beginners, is too long. The danger of using long meditations is that the student will give up too soon before the benefits kick in due to lack of time to listen to the long recordings.
Use a recorded meditation that is the right length
One way to overcome this problem is to use a guided meditation system specifically designed for the beginner such as the ReAwakening Meditation Program. The Re-Awakening was created for the beginner or busy person in mind. The longest meditation is twelve minutes with most averaging around nine minutes. Plus, the entire system takes just 16 days to complete. Studies have shown that just five minutes of deep relaxation can positively affect stress levels and lower blood pressure. So, with that in mind the Re-Awakening system was created.
Are you too busy to meditate?
It's quite challenging for someone who has trouble sitting still or is too busy to make time for long daily meditations to begin by meditating for twenty minutes or longer on day one. That's why the Re-Awakening guided meditations are short. But don't let short fool you; they may be short but they are powerful!
The Re-Awakening guided meditations were created to address every need from boosting health benefits through relaxation, getting the answers you need to problems in your life to increasing your powers of intuition.
