Using Meditation to relax

Meditation is when you involve your mind in a deeper train of thought. The stresses of daily life often leave our minds racing which could lead to things such as insomnia or even higher amounts of stress.
According to, "We start by paying attention to our breathing. The practical effort to focus completely on our breathing takes our minds away from the 'mind clutter' that constantly tries to invade our mind and eliminate feelings that will lead to a time of calm. With repeated effort the goal of clearing your mind- to think of nothing, does occur and the process of meditation takes on its own energy. The result is, and I guarantee this, peace, serenity, calmness, eventually opening yourself to new insights. "
When learning to meditate, realize that there is really no right or wrong way to do it. As I researched, I found that meditation is just time that you set aside for yourself. " A simple ten or fifteen minute breathing meditation can help you to overcome your stress and find some inner peace and balance, " said.
According to, "meditation can also help us to understand our own mind. WE can learn how to transform our mind from negative to positive, from disturbed to peaceful, from unhappy to happy."
If you are ever feeling stressed or down. Give yourself the gift of 15 minutes to meditate. You might find that it helps you.
