Guided meditation to relax the mind
Do you feel like a hamster on a wheel, I know I do, life is hectic and sometimes nonstop! If we don’t find ways to relax and breathe, then don’t be surprised if you start feeling worn out. Don’t get me wrong, we can’t completely avoid stress, but we sure can counteract it!
Quick Fact: For many of us, relaxation means zoning out in front of the TV at the end of a stressful day. But this does little to reduce the damaging effects of stress. To effectively combat stress, we need to activate the body's natural relaxation response.
This is where meditation comes into the picture. Now a lot of people get confused about meditation, as there are so many different types and techniques available. I think we can all agree, the one we’re concerned about, is the one to do with relaxation. More specifically, we want to train the mind through guided meditation to induce a conscious state of relaxation.
To clarify even further: We want to practise a type of guided meditation that induces the relaxation response.
What is the relaxation response?
When stress overwhelms your nervous system, your body is flooded with chemicals that prepare you for "fight or flight." This stress response can be lifesaving in emergency situations where you need to act quickly. But when it’s constantly activated by the stresses of everyday life, it can wear your body down and take a toll on your emotional health.
Ok I hear you saying, tell me what the relaxation response is…Simply put it’s the opposite of the stress response, think about it, deep rest is the opposite of stress. Now I know what you’re thinking, ok great I need to go into a coma or something! Not quite, but you do need to put the brakes on stress and bring your mind and body into a state of harmony.
Again, I hear you saying, easier said than done. But what if I was to tell you that scientific studies and a plethora of empirical evidence demonstrated that Deep Breathing was the fastest way to calm down and induce harmony.
Why Deep Breathing Is the Fastest Way to Calm You Down
Something as simple as deep breathing has been demonstrated time and time again to be the most effective relaxation response. In fact, here’s a short list of physical effects, when done correctly:
Remember I said mind and body need to be in a state of harmony. Well with regular deep breathing, you can synchronise both and then the real magic starts to happen (again another short list of benefits):
Honestly the list goes on and on, but the key takeaway is this: Practised Deep Breathing using Guided Meditation, is simply put the most effective relaxation technique on this planet!
Guided Meditation for Deep Relaxation
Let’s recap, we know that guided meditation is the best way to learn deep breathing. Which in turn is the best way to relax right…got it? Good, now what does this mean. We need someone constantly with us, guiding us on how to meditate and breathe for relaxation. Well that’s kind of right, but not quite…
We can use the power of hypnosis, and more importantly, self-hypnosis to enter a meditative state. From here, we practise deep breathing correctly. Which in turn activates the relaxation response, and we achieve inner peace with mind and body, nice and simple!
