Meditation during Self-Isolation

April 02, 2020

Health & Wellbeing

There are many preconceptions of meditation – much time sitting in silence in strange cross-legged body positions or hours of studying to find the practices that fit you best.  

 

However, meditation should be simple and accessible for everyone, and can even be performed in a short space of time - hours of reading and research are not necessary to start enjoying some more peace of mind.  These exercises can also be performed in any space, making it meditation a perfect thing to practice while in self-isolation.

 

Use these simple points below to begin your five-minute meditation, try and repeat for a whole week and see how you feel by the end of the seven days!

 

 

  • Begin by taking deep, full breaths and exhaling slowly out of your mouth three or four times.
  • Focus on your breathing, following the inhalations and exhalations. 
  • The idea here is to de-stress, reset your mind and distance yourself from your daily worries.
  • Focus on simply counting your inhalations and exhalations, and try to move from faster breathing to slower, considered breaths.
  • When you have finished, take a moment to reflect on how you feel and any changes that you appreciate.
