When we are stressed or worried about something, we sometimes let fear control us. We fidget; We lack breath and mental clarity, so it is not easy to control thoughts. Guided meditations and mindfulness exercises are helpful for fighting anxiety and finding a state of balance.
Mindfulness is a type of meditation that focuses on the bodily sensations, or a stimulus allows what we perceive to be maximized. Thanks to this guided meditation, you can find emotional stability by breaking away from the causes that made you understand fear.
Among the yoga relaxation techniques, mindfulness meditation is often used to bring attention to the present moment, which is the only moment we are experiencing. By forgetting the past and the future and focusing only on what we live in the immediate future, we immediately perceive a departure from the worries and all the scenarios that cause us negativity.
One of the exercises against fear and panic is meditation on the five senses. You can choose any fruit to put into practice: one by one, you will have to use your thoughts to analyze them as you have never done before. Then close your eyes and try to feel the texture, shape and tactile sensations with your hands. This continues with the other senses by trying to bring the object close to an ear and slide your finger over it to discover the sound produced, to smell it and finally to taste it.
Another useful way to regain mental calm is through guided relaxation for anxiety and stress. It is a type of meditation that allows you to feel safe and let go of the fear that almost always accompanies us in anxious states.
You can choose whether you want to stay in a sitting or lying position. The most important thing is to find a comfortable place where you can completely relax. Close your eyes, focus on your breath, relax your muscles and let go of your body tension. Let yourself sink until you can no longer clearly feel the limits of your body on the floor. At this point you start to visualize a blue light approaching your body and slowly enveloping it. Focus on the blue color and try to be aware of it for as long as possible. An incense stick can help.
Meditate with your breath
Finally, breathing can help combat anxiety. Many techniques may be right for you; The easiest thing to do is to breathe alternately through the nostrils. Balancing inhalation and exhalation times and changing nostrils will take 5-10 minutes to restore mental balance and a state of calm and relaxation.
Sit in a comfortable position and try to keep your back straight, close your eyes and place your right thumb on your right nostril and your right ring finger on your left nostril. Plug in your right nose, inhale from the left (5 seconds), plug in the left, and exhale from the right (5 seconds each time).
