When you think of meditation, you may think of meditation as a serious daily discipline of twenty-minute practice of long deep silence of the mind. But the facts are meditation doesn’t have to be long in-fact for many people short periods of meditation throughout your busy stressful day can be more helpful. That is why this less than 5 Minute Meditation Technique is perfect for busy people. Meditation is not about having no thoughts.
Meditation is about fully being in the moment, or about being able to fully present on one thing at a time. Today we have access to so many different types of meditation techniques that can do that, some more effective than others.
As a Meditation Teacher and Stress Therapist for many years, my role was to help encourage and support adults and children to make meditation part of their daily life. So they would feel less stressed and anxious, more at peace, happier, healthier being more connected to the self.
20 years ago I was asked to teach at a local secondary school, where there were a lot of challenges. Having taught large groups of young people meditation before I was aware of the challenges. I wanted to make meditation teenage friendly as possible. Especially for young males struggling with anger issues.
I eventually came across a Qi Qong style based meditation, which I slightly adapted for my work. This 5-Minute Meditation Technique which actually takes just over 4 minutes, became the most popular technique I ever taught. It still had a traditional slant although a little bit different from the more Traditional Based Meditation Techniques I had studied and taught at that time.
We are so lucky today to have access to so many styles of meditation so that we can choose what style works for us. I began my practice of meditation over 25 years ago with more Buddhist-Style Meditations, Transcendental Meditation, and Mantra Meditations. Years later I discovered some fab techniques that could induce a deep meditative state in just a few minutes.
I believe the most important key when your teach someone how to meditate . Is that you give them a tool they can use as simply and easily into their daily life. A tool that will eventually help them access the stillness, peace that is always there no matter what appears to be going on around you or to you. Many people use only guided meditation and although I used guided meditation for a lot of deep healing work. I often explain guided meditations is where someone guides your thoughts stimulating memories of your senses. More traditional meditation helps loosen off and gives you space from your thoughts, something most people need today.
As most of my work involved teaching stress management for 18 years my clients wanted to see some sort of tangible result, quite quickly. The 5 Minute Meditation Technique is the perfect busy persons tool. It is simple, fast and effective. Even the most stressed-out clients and students are very surprised at how quickly this technique works. You can learn how to experience more deep calm in stressful situations or use it as a power nap to get through a busy or exhausting day. It also can be practiced in the office, at home, it can be done with the kids, it can even be practiced on public transport.
This is a great meditation for beginners and more experienced meditators who want something simple and effective to use throughout their day. It is also one of the techniques I teach in my Accredited Relaxation Therapist Training and Stress Management Training Programs.
