3 Simple Meditation Techniques To Try Today
Pregnancy and life as a new mum can be both a wonderful and anxious time. With so many questions and much to do for your baby it can feel overwhelming. Meditation is something you can do anytime, anywhere and Pregnancy Yoga Teacher Kim Sprague (www.kimteachesyoga.com) shares three simple techniques you can try for between 4 and 8 minutes whenever you can.
Find a quiet spot when you can sit comfortably, on a chair or on the floor. Use a cushion to prop your hips up so they sit higher than your knees and, if on the floor, try having your back supported against a wall. Close your eyes gently and begin.
focus the mind. Some examples are ‘I am calm’, ‘My baby is safe and happy’ or the yogic mantra ‘So Hum’. Repeat the mantra either internally to yourself or out loud, as you inhale and exhale, to help quieten mental chatter.
