Meditation is a great way to reduce stress and anxiety. Here are five simple meditation techniques that can be done in just five minutes:
Deep breathing: Sit comfortably with your eyes closed and take slow, deep breaths. Focus on your breath as it enters and leaves your body.
Body scan: Sit or lie down in a comfortable position with your eyes closed. Focus your attention on your body, starting with your toes and moving up to your head.
Notice any tension or discomfort and breathe into those areas, relaxing them as you exhale.
Loving-kindness: Imagine someone you love or care deeply about. Picture them in your mind,
And silently repeat phrases such as "May you be happy, may you be healthy, may you be safe, may you live with ease." Repeat for five minutes.
Mindfulness: Sit comfortably with your eyes closed and focus on your breath. When your mind wanders, gently bring your attention back to your breath.
Notice any thoughts, feelings or sensations without judgement and return to your breath.
Visualization: Imagine a peaceful scene, such as a beach or a mountain top. Picture yourself in that place,
feeling relaxed and at peace. Spend five minutes in this visualization, allowing yourself to fully immerse in the experience.
