Here are 3 ways to destress and master inner peace through meditation.
Our lifestyle has dramatically changed over the years. We are busier than ever, sprinting from one task to another while managing work, family and social life. In this process, our bodies go through all sorts of emotions, stress, and struggles, and it’s about time we press reset and #relax for a while. This week, Be Beautiful has brought on board Raahima Salaar, a lifestyle blogger to teach you 3 meditation techniques to de-stress, refocus and master inner peace. Let’s learn them together.
Technique 1 – Breathing
All you need to do is sit upright and form a Gyan Mudra, which is known as the gesture of knowledge and wisdom. Simply join the tip of your thumb and index finger and form a circle, while the other three fingers are stretched out. Then, breathe deeply. Our pro suggests doing it 5-6 times. This technique will help you destress and calm down.
Technique 2 – Visualisation
The second technique is called visualisation. You can either sit back or lie down on the bed and then, close your eyes.
“What I do is I imagine a big, thick tree in front of me or a plain wall,” explains Raahima. “And then, I imagine black fluid flowing from my head, which symbolises all the stress and anxiety that I have collected throughout the day. Then, I project all of that towards that tree or wall.”
You need to visualise all the stress, anxiety and bad energy leaving your body in the form of that black fluid. Take a deep breath and open your eyes.
Technique 3 – Counting Backwards
This is a very simple technique. All you need to do is sit straight, with your feet touching the floor. Place your hands on your thighs, close your eyes and start counting backwards. This technique is beneficial for people with insomnia and people who over think a lot and don’t know how to switch off their minds. You can count from either 20, 50, 100 or 200 to 1. Then, take a deep breath and open your eyes.
