MINDFULNESS MEDITATION FOR BEGINNERS
You may have thought about trying meditation, but it can be hard to know where to begin. I’ll show you how to start, feel better, reduce your stress, and enjoy your life a little more – in just a few minutes a day.
Life gets busy.
When it does, quite often the last thing we do is take time for ourselves.
Just a few minutes of quiet time can do so much for your health.
Research shows that meditation:
Helps with depression
Boosts brain power
I’m Jennifer Houghton. I’ve put together an online program based on the live courses that I teach. It is flexible so you can do a few minutes at a time or a full hour – it is up to you. My goal is to help you feel the benefits of meditation right away without making major changes to your schedule or lifestyle.
Who Is Mindfulness Meditation For?
Here are five scenarios where you could profit from starting meditation:
What is mindfulness?
Mindfulness is a way of being fully present in the moment. It means you are not wasting mental energy reliving the past or worrying about the future. You feel calm and grounded at the same time.
You can improve your ability to stay calm by practicing mindfulness during a meditation. During meditation you focus your attention on what is happening right now, in this moment only.
In meditation you might choose to focus on your breath, or on a sound, or on a physical sensation. Each time your mind wanders (and it will – A LOT), you gently remind yourself to focus on the object of the meditation. By doing this, you improve your ability to concentrate.
When we practice this kind of meditation regularly, we get better at it. Plus, we learn how to apply mindfulness in our daily lives. We become more patient with ourselves and others. We can concentrate better. We are less affected by stress.
What’s included in the Meditation for Beginners program:
◄ Introduction to Meditation – a recorded class that provides you with the information on how mindfulness works.
○ Learn what to do with your mind while you meditate.
○ Learn the building blocks of a practice.
○ Get the tools you need so you can begin meditating on your own.
◄ A series of 5 guided meditations for you to follow. Progress at your own pace as you become more comfortable with meditation.
◄ A ‘cheat-sheet’ for you to use when you are ready to try meditating on your own without the recordings.
◄ BONUS: A recorded meditation you can use while you are walking. This will help you learn to apply mindfulness skills in your daily life. You can practice staying grounded and focused no matter what is happening around you.
Science is showing that mindfulness meditation:
• slows ageing at a cellular level
• increases gray matter in the parts of the brain that control memory and concentration
• makes us more forgiving and patient
• diminishes the pain we feel
Mindfulness is a skill and just like any other skill, you get better when you practice. If you have a busy mind like most people, you can still do this. All it takes is sitting down and trying it for a few minutes a day.
