staying focused!

Let’s face it, we are all going stir crazy & have been living on the ragged edge of uncertainty for weeks now. I am not sure how everyone is coping throughout their day, but I wanted to share with you a method that I use to try and keep myself balanced in a world that sometimes feels upside down. One method I use is, Meditation!

BENEFITS OF MEDITATION

If relaxation is not the goal of meditation, it is often a result. In addition to many health benefits that I will outline below, meditation is thought to be a wonderful exercise for strengthening your mental health & well-being.

Practicing meditation is thought to help in many different ways. It is said that it helps us to clear our mind, stay calmer, have better focus, have a greater sense of self-awareness.. Plus it helps inspires empathy, compassion & can help maintain a positive emotional balance.

Studies on the medical benefits of meditation have documented the following short-term benefits to the nervous system:

  • Lower blood pressure
  • Improved blood circulation
  • Lower heart rate
  • Less perspiration
  • Slower respiratory rate
  • Less anxiety
  • Lower blood cortisol levels
  • More feelings of well-being
  • Less stress
  • Deeper relaxation

HOW TO MEDITATE: SIMPLE MEDITATION FOR BEGINNERS

This meditation exercise is an excellent introduction to meditation techniques.

  1. Sit or lie comfortably.
  2. Close your eyes.
  3. Make no effort to control the breath; simply breathe naturally.
  4. Focus your attention on the breath and on how the body moves with each inhalation and exhalation. Notice the movement of your body as you breathe. Observe your chest, shoulders, rib cage, and belly. Simply focus your attention on your breath without controlling its pace or intensity. If your mind wanders, return your focus back to your breath.

Maintain this meditation practice for two to three minutes to start, and then try it for longer periods. 

It is really as simple as that!

It is my hope that in these trying times, that although we may be apart, that we may help encourage each other and lean on one another (virtually). We are stronger together & safer apart. But I do miss you all & would like to send all my clients, fellow brokers/agents, family/friends & community members a virtual HUG & many blessings! May we all get back to “NORMAL” soon!
