THE SECRET FOR MEDITATING OUTDOOR – WARMER WEATHER
There is nothing more cozy and enthusiastic than the warm weather and peaceful sound of nature. Such natural feeling cannot be compared to an impressive or elegant home. The pride of nature cannot easily be overwhelmed by the creation of man and this has contributed to its success in meditation. Though indoor meditation has proven to be a success; however, many experts have confirmed in their studies that a connection with nature (no matter how long or short) influences calm minds, refresh mood, and peaceful thoughts. In this context, you will learn how to benefit from outdoor meditation.
A meditation garden is where you relax and absorb good energy by focusing on a particular image or object. This garden doesn’t have to be complex; a simple design and an organized structure are all you need. The most important thing is to create an area that is built with the aim of providing relaxation. Many backyard structures and garden support skylights to let the sun shine and create a warm weather. Indeed, nature is calming and gardeners know this. Studies have shown that meditating outdoor in gardens has proven to reduce stress and negative thoughts. When you start meditating in this environment, ensure that you take note of what you are thinking about, and keep focusing your mind until you have achieved for that session.
Get Your Breathing Right
When meditating outdoor, take 5 seconds to inhale deeply through your nose and then the next 5 seconds to exhale deeply through your mouth. Use each exhale to bury all your negative thoughts and breathe in fresh air to keep you refreshed.
Water is soothing
Unknown to most people, the sounds you hear contributes to your stress levels. Terrible sounds from machines, car horns, and sirens can cause anxiety and panic attacks. Alternatively, the gentle sound provided by water creates a connection that can erase your stress, promote relaxation, and enhance meditation. It could be as simple as tabletop fountain or the waving sound of gentle rain outdoor. Whatever natural water feature you can provide within your home or neighbourhood, make sure you use it to your own meditative advantage.
Regardless of the time and place, listening to music can help you relax. However, listening to meditative music in a quiet environment will produce a greater result. All you have to do is go outside to a quiet location (like your garden or backyard space) and focus on your worries while listening to inspirational tunes. In a few minutes, you will refresh your mood by letting out negative thoughts and energy.
Beginners are expected to start with 5 or 10 minutes, and as time goes by and your confident increase you begin to meditate for longer periods.
For those who don’t have larger spaces outdoor, you can bring the outdoors inside. Do this by placing colorful flowers, bonsai trees, and beautiful potted plants into your home. You can still achieve that outdoor connection indoor.
