Have you tried to meditate and given up in frustration? Does this frustration make you feel more anxious than relaxed? If you feel frustrated by your inability to quiet your mind, try this guided meditation as a simple alternative to a more formal practice.
Any kind of meditation can have physiological, emotional, and psychological benefits. Guided meditations give the mind a focus while still allowing you to escape the mind’s every-day busyness and constant chattering. Using your imagination and a guided meditation can help you naturally find peace and a sense of contentment by quietly allowing your mind to settle into a state of calm.
Following guided imagery relaxation videos is probably the easiest way that you can take out 5 to 10 minutes from your day to “escape”. Let’s call it a “mini-vacation” for your mind, body, and spirit. Did you know that meditating for just 5 minutes a day regularly can help you even lower you blood pressure? A guided imagery relaxation video gives you the opportunity to give yourself those few minutes that you so very much deserve, to re-connect with yourself, and to re-charge your batteries for the rest of the day!

That’s all there is to it! Spend a few minutes imagining yourself in a safe place being bathed by a warm, golden light. There are no rules to this and you can change it to suit yourself. You can even change the color from golden to any other color that appeals to you. Maybe you feel you would rather be bathed in blue or purple! When you start, you can ask yourself what color appeals to you most and go with that.
If you want to start meditating then you need to set aside the required time. If you think, “Hey I can’t find the time I’m to busy,” then think again. There are almost definitely periods in your day when you can find at least 15 to 20 minutes or so. For a start you can stop watching too much TV. Once you have found the time then what you need to do is sit on your favourite chair if you’re going to listen to your guided relaxation whilst sitting down. Or lie down on your bed if that’s the position you’d favour.
