5 Steps to Finding your Zen in the ‘Silly’ Season

As the silly season hits us at a lightening speed life undoubtedly becomes chaotic, what with shopping for gifts, end of year school productions, office parties and the like and as Murphy’s law has it, your child will run in at the eleventh hour in an absolute panic because they don’t have a gift for their new bff…….

‘Oh dear, I (insert expletive here) forgot!’ you think to yourself. Inevitably a late night dash to the shops follows…….

All of this extra ‘Merry’ Season activity can add more to the load of our already crazy busy schedules resulting in extra stress and fatigue.

One of the ways we can reduce stress and find some inner calm is through the age-old art of meditation. Meditation has proven health benefits, such as:

  • Reduces blood pressure
  • Reduces anxiety and stress
  • Improves immune system
  • Improves breathing and heart rate
  • Increases energy levels
  • Increases mental clarity and memory
  • Improves mood…..

just to name a few.

Not sure where to start……..no worries here are 5 simple steps to get you going.

5 Simple Steps to Meditation

  1. Find a quiet place with no distractions
  2. If you’re usually active, try just sitting for 5 minutes at a time to get your body used to not doing anything.
  3. Close your eyes and focus on your breathing
  4. Take a few deep breaths in through the nose and out through the mouth
  5. Let any thoughts float away without paying attention to them

Try doing this for 10 minutes a day, it will get easier the more you do it and then you can increase the time.  If you are finding that it is difficult to shut off the mind chatter, try lighting a candle and focusing on the flame while breathing.  You’ll find in no time that you will be getting through your day with more flow and you will be able to cope more easily in times of stress.

So here’s wishing you a happy and more calmer Christmas xx
