Meditation for those who have never tried

A short practice will help to cope with anxiety and calm the mind.

Anxiety, as a rule, appears absolutely suddenly and at the most inopportune moment. It’s impossible to focus on anything, negative thoughts just creep into your head, and the word “calm down” from relatives or colleagues is perceived as a mockery. If emotions are running high, a little meditation will help you deal with them. Today we have prepared an eight-minute practice that will relieve tension and relieve you of feelings of anxiety. If you have never tried meditation, do it now.

I do this practice almost every day, it’s called the Breathing Room. In this “room” you can relax, forget about your problems and calm down. The practice can be done at any time of the day and anywhere. The most important thing is that you feel it.

  • Sit comfortably on a sofa or rug: you can sit in Turkish, in a lotus position, or simply leaning on the wall or back of the sofa. Keep your back straight. Place your hands on your knees or on your hips.
  • Stretch your crown to the ceiling, as you exhale, gently close your eyes. Take a few deep breaths in and out: inhale through your nose, exhale through your mouth.
  • Breathe evenly through your nose, put the tip of your tongue on the palate. Relax the face, the point between the eyebrows and the shoulders. Watch your breath for a while.
  • Bring your attention to your mind. Try not to evaluate the thoughts that you have, follow them as if from the outside.
  • Now imagine a beautiful light that comes from the center of your body, it can be absolutely any color. Light begins to spread and grow in all directions. Watch this process.
  • Let the light grow to such a size that you feel it enveloping you. This is your “breathing room”, nothing will disturb you here. Let go of all thoughts and watch your every inhalation and exhalation.
  • Feel the inner peace and harmony while in this bright “room”. Maintaining this state, quietly open your eyes. Take a deep breath in through your nose and out through your mouth.
  • Stretch lightly in different directions before ending the meditation.

Practice is over. See Elena’s detailed comments in the video.
