Glynis and Michael Sitting on Sofa

A beginners guide to meditation

Glynis BarberStress Management 12 Comments

The practice of meditation is of great benefit as the mind and body are closely connected. Meditation can help lower blood pressure, reduce the stress hormone cortisol and is a wonderful way to process the turmoil and challenges of life.

A daily dose of meditation keeps stress at bay

It’s a discipline like any anything else, just like exercise, but once we make it part of our daily routine, it can have far reaching benefits in our lives.

Meditation can be intimidating

If you have never meditated, it can seem a difficult thing to do. Common misconceptions are that you mustn’t think when you meditate. That is simply not possible as our brains are thinking machines.

It’s how you engage with your thoughts that’s important

In the video below, I sit with Michael Brandon (my husband) who is an experienced meditation teacher. He’s taught in clinics as well as prisons in the UK and the US.

This is just a taster to get you started. How to settle down and get into the groove.

Give it a try.
