Meditation: start your day with it and note the difference throughout the day

How do you start your day?

Do you know how important meditation is to your life?

Did you know that meditation can help you to remove anxiety and develop an inner peace needed to kick start your day?

After reading this article, I challenge you to start your day with meditation and note the difference throughout the day.

While sleeping, your body is idle for several hours. When you are awake, it is still not fully active. How you treat your body at this stage will go a long way throughout the day. The kind of meal you eat and the simple exercises you undergo can make the difference. However, the greater benefits can be explored with a simple meditation routine. Starting your day with meditation allows you to re-align your body, re-connect your muscles, and commune with your inner self. It also enhances your physical flexibility and other amazing benefits will last well after you’ve stepped out the door.

How Do I Go About Starting My Day With Meditation?

Starting your day with relaxation and meditation doesn’t necessarily mean you need to wake up a few minutes or hours earlier. It is as simple as separating yourself from the real world for around 10 – 15 minutes when you wake. This routine can calm your mind, refresh mood, and provide good energy to start your day off. You can simply say your daily prayer, activate “silence mood” on your gadgets, turn off your PC and TV, and avoid other interruptions and distractions. Make sure you are alone and uplift your surrounding with soft instrumental music. In your meditation, you can see, feel, observe, and accept your thoughts. You can also navigate every moment of your life, feel your body and relate to your inner being. It is the best time to set a particular goal or task for the day. This set goal will be the driving force of your day. You’ll discover that with a clear path in mind, it will be much easier to direct your focus towards achieving your goals.

Giving thanks to God every morning helps you to realize how grateful you are and give you the courage to kick-start the new day. Exercise helps to unwind your muscles and also oxygenates the cells in your body. This removes toxins and helps to improve the quality of your blood. Controlled breathing lowers your blood pressure thus releasing tension in the body. If you make this a daily routine, you will forever enjoy the several benefits it can produce to your body, mind, and soul. In the end, you will feel inner comfort arising, your mind will be clear thus preparing it for all the tasks it will have to do later in the day.

Now you see what to do the first thing in the morning – calming your mind to start your day off right. Once again, I challenge you to try this out! For all the benefits it will provide you, learn how to meditate.
