The people I work with are busy. They want to live each day with less stress and greater health and happiness, without necessarily having to adopt the pre-defined spiritual or new age lifestyles often associated with meditation.
If this sounds like you, why not think of meditation as just another part of everyday life. A little something you do to keep well, like brushing your teeth, having breakfast or phoning a good friend for a chat.
Here is my meditation starter pack.
1. Order my book 'Inhale. Exhale. Repeat' and start reading! The book is illustrated, easy to dip into and full of inspiring ideas you can start using straight away. It's a really practical guide and It will walk you through meditation step by step.
2. While awaiting
Relax features 5 guided meditations drawing on breathing exercises, guided imagery and simple mindfulness. I am quite a bookish person and I love to read. However, since publishing the audio meditation albums, I've had a lot of great feedback from listeners telling me how much more helpful it is to have my voice guiding them along the meditations.
The meditations range in length from 2 minutes to 15 minutes, so you can listen to one at a time or play the entire album through (50 minutes). Once ordered you will get immediate access and you can start listening along and meditating right away.
3. Well done! You're up and running now so keep going and enjoy the journey.
If you want to evolve your understanding even further, why not attend a group training or meditation class?
If you can't get to a group at the moment, private sessions are great because you can get established really, really swiftly.
Something that many people don't realise is that having the enthusiasm for meditation is a miracle in itself. So always remember, the fact that you have the spark of meditation interest, means you're already a success.
It is absolutely beautiful that you are interested in meditation.
