Meditation is a way of relaxing the body while simultaneously focusing the mind to find calm and contentment – a safe space to connect with your thoughts, feelings and emotions. Regular meditation practice can help rest the mind, reduce stress and promote relaxation.
Step into your ‘me-space’, where the boss isn’t nagging, the kids aren’t screaming and your time is yours and yours alone. Escape the busyness of everyday life. Just 30 minutes of ‘mind-bliss’ meditations and breathing techniques is all it takes to bring a little more peace and balance into your day. A few of the main benefits of regular meditation can include physical and mental relaxation, stress and or anxiety reduction, sleep and energy improvements.
It's often best to create a fairly quiet and relaxed environment to stop distraction and ideally, it’s a place where you feel comfortable and warm. For Fernwood members, meditation sessions are available for free via the Fernwood Pulse platform.
