Are you a stress – carrier?
I was born a stress – carrier
I carried not just my worries but others’ too. Over the years this stress manifested in numerous accidents, body aches, migraines & many ailments which had no reason to occur
One day, I decided to seek help. I spoke to people, joined support groups & finally began meditation
Till date Meditation has been that one life savior for my stress & unfounded worries. Anyone can meditate anywhere in any state. Amidst noise, with music, while walking
There are a lot of myths around it. The only truth to it is that it requires sitting in silence, mindfulness & discipline that very few can master
Some things that might help you manage your stress
– Slow breathing while cooking. Mostly cooking is a solitary venture, hence conducive to meditation
– After hitting the snooze button, when you really do not want to get out bed, is a good time to ponder on the day ahead & to meditate for a calm start
– Mindfulness during your lunch breaks, coffee breaks. It leads to being more aware & more in control of our body
– Giving to others – Listening to meditation & muscle relaxation videos
– Focusing on one’s breath
What is your meditation?
