    Stress Meditation - Tips to Follow

    There are four important steps to follow that base any stress meditation program. Here they are:

    1. Find a suitable place for your stress meditation. How should this place be? First of all, it needs to be clean, natural, not too busy, and it has to be private and cozy. No disturbing sounds are allowed, no disturbing smells and no uncomfortable positions.

    2. Breathing. How should you breathe? Firstly, you need to make sure you are breathing slowly and deeply. Take your time, feel the pure air that surrounds you and consider breathing like a way of purifying your body.

    3. Reduce the tension. This might sound harder than it actually is. Basically, try to visualize your tension, to locate it. Is it in your chest, in your legs, in your head? Then you need to focus on pushing down your tension. Push it down more and more, until you eliminate it from your body. At the same time, you need to relax your muscles and to let loose of your contractions. Feel how your body gets lighter, once you pushed away the tension and relaxed your muscles.

    4. Imagine. Visualize, create a place where you feel comfortable, where you feel safe and at peace. It can be anything, as long as all the feelings that come along with that certain place are positive. Enjoy the emotions and the sensations that the place presents to you. In order to do this, you can try it alone, or you can opt for a professional tape with directions on what to do and what to imagine.

    When I use the bathroom I tend to release a huge amount of stress.
