The world is getting increasingly fast-paced, and the more we put off catching up, the wearier we get. Life appears to be claiming more and more of our time and energy, and as a result, the relationship between mental health and mindfulness is getting popular. Mindfulguides encourage doing 5-minute best-guided meditations every day.  Every day, we must juggle money, careers, families, health, and social lives, all of which take a toll on our physical, mental, and emotional well-being. You don't have to go it alone if you want to start meditating. For better sleep, reduced worry, self-healing, and more awareness try this easy meditation for beginners.

  1. Make yourself at ease and take a deep breath. Sit with your back straight in a chair. Under your knees, place your feet flat on the floor. Relax your arms while resting your palms on your thighs. Look straight ahead, but don't fix your gaze on anything in particular. Instead, pay attention to everything in the room at the same time. Start with taking a deep breath and feeling your feet. Feel them making contact with the ground or the inside of your shoes. Feel the humidity, the temperature, and the texture of your socks. From the inside, pay close attention to your feet. Don't "think" about them; simply "feel" and "sense" them.
  2. Pay close attention to your body. Move your focus to your calves after a few breaths. For many breaths, feel and sense them. Then, from your legs to your bottom against the chair, to your belly and lower back, chest and upper back, shoulders, arms, hands, neck, face, and finally, your head, transfer your attention from body part to body part. Then, at the same moment, let your awareness encompass your entire body. The goal of this mindfulness meditation exercise is to use your attention to "scan" your body, pausing for a few breaths on each component. This exercise will improve your ability to focus and direct your attention and is employed in the women empowerment course. 
  3. Thank You for Sharing Your Mind. You may find that as soon as you sit down, you begin to recall events and feel compelled to act on them. This is a normal component of the procedure. When such ideas arise and attempt to divert your attention away from your body, simply repeat softly to yourself, "Thank you for sharing," and return your focus to your body. If you're uncomfortable or frustrated and want to quit, simply sit still. Know that the discomfort you're experiencing isn't due to the exercise; rather, it's something that happens when you become aware of your baseline condition. The first step in dissolving this underlying condition and reclaiming the energy it drains is to become aware of it.
  4. Anytime, Anywhere: Use Mindfulness Meditation. This strategy may be employed in any stressful scenario, such as a business meeting or a packed subway journey during rush hour. When we are apprehensive, our unconscious thoughts are interpreting, judging, measuring, and anticipating, using essential energy, and increasing worry. We regain that squandered energy by refocusing our attention on our bodies and breath.
