Meditation guided sessions typically happen at select times, either in a meditation class setting or at home in your free time. Sometimes, however, you might feel the need to take a short break and meditate when something at work gets stressful, or you suddenly feel overwhelmed on your morning commute. You can utilize various portions of your guided meditation routine throughout the day whenever you feel a need for calm in a hectic setting.
Breathing exercises can be key to your meditation routines by helping you to absorb positive energy in your surroundings better. One thing you can try begins with you placing your tongue against the roof of your mouth. Breathe deeply, but effortlessly, being careful not to overextend your lung capacity or work too hard. Inhale to the count of seven, hold your breath for three counts, exhale to another count of seven, and hold your breath for another three counts. You can repeat this recipe as many times as you like until you feel relaxed. You can vary the counts on the inhale, exhale or on hold to fit into your comfort level. Also, be careful not to hyperventilate.When you feel overwhelmed and want to calm yourself quickly, try this guided meditation task that you can do while sitting at a desk, standing in line, or at any number of places or settings. Begin by visualizing a cord of aura energy traveling from your root chakra to the center of the earth. Allow your crown chakra to open up to receive positive energy as you release any negative feelings you are experiencing. Visualize your chakras aligning. It may help you to physically move your body. One thing you can try is swaying your upper body. As you feel your chakras aligning, roll your head and neck to loosen up this area of your body, as it can often hold a lot of stress. Then shrug and roll your shoulders to free up any tension stored there.Allow each chakra to open and receive the positive energy around you. Do not worry that someone might see you and think you are odd. If you are standing in line or sitting at a desk, you will simply look like you are stretching your joints. You can even incorporate this exercise into your standard meditation routine. Incorporating these two exercises throughout the day can give you the overall feeling of well-being throughout the day when you do not have the time to complete your full session of meditation guided.
