Using meditation as a healthy morning mind exercise
Morning meditation is a good way to combat stress and start your morning right. Not only does meditation help sharpen up your mind and relax your body, but it has also shown promising potential as a healthy therapeutic activity.
One of the best times to do meditation is during morning right after you wake up from a good night sleep. A silent time and place is essential when meditating and early morning is one of the best times of the day to practice meditation.
Right when you wake up, your mind is not yet wired to the mental stress that awaits your day and your body is still fresh from taking a rest. Using morning meditation as a healthy morning exercise is a great way to start your day and here are some helpful tips to get you started:
Helpful Morning Meditation Tips
1. Do a bit of stretching
Yes, you read it right. Just like you do when you need to do some stretching in order to prepare your body for an intense exercise, you must also do a bit of stretching before you go into meditation. Getting a good flow of blood into your body is important in meditation and stretching is a good way to accomplish this.
2. Meditate with a goal in mind
When doing meditation, it is very important that you meditate with a specific goal in mind. This allows your mind to settle in and focus, making your meditation much more productive. If you want to meditate on a specific area in your life or a goal that you want to achieve, use that as a focal point of your meditation. Think only of that single goal while meditating and you will be surprised at how effective your meditation session can be. Proper goal setting is essential even in meditation.
3. Commit And Make Morning Meditation A Habit
Make morning meditation a habit by committing to the practice. Just like some people wake up early every day just to be able to do a round of morning jog, you should also make morning meditations a part of your daily rituals. Consistency and repetition is essential in manifestation and meditation so try to make it a daily habit.
