Five minutes of daily meditation can help reduce stress, improve your well-being and decrease aches and pains.
There are many different ways to meditate. The body scan meditation is all about systematically focusing your attention on different parts of the body. Begin by finding a comfortable seat in silence. Set your timer for five minutes and breathe normally as you start to focus you attention on your toes. From your toes to your ankles to your neck and down your arms, try to relax whatever part of the body you’re focusing on. Breathing about five conscious breaths per body part will help make the five minutes fly by in no time.
