Meditation is not necessarily about stopping your thoughts or OM'ing away your troubles. Meditation can be as simple as taking a walk in nature, allowing the beauty and peace that surrounds you to fill your senses.
You cannot prevent or avoid all stressful situations but, if you learn how to enter into a relaxed and calm state, you can better manage the way unfortunate events and circumstances affect you.
For anyone who wishes to take steps towards a happier and more fulfilling life, these mindful breathing practices and guided visualisations for relaxation can be incorporated easily into daily living to help pave the way.
The state of peace and tranquillity is available to everyone. There is no darkness that cannot be driven out – or at least greatly diminished – by the light that already exists deep inside of you. It is a matter of tapping into your true self, thereby gaining assistance to become the best possible version of yourself that you can be.
