What is Meditation?
Put simply, Meditation is a natural process of connecting with your inner self and experiencing a deep sense of peace, relaxation & wellbeing. It provides relief from stress as it stills the mind, balances the emotions and rests the body. The term Meditation encompasses a broad variety of practices that promote a calm & peaceful state of ‘conscious awareness’. 
In our modern hectic lives, we can have as many as 60,000 thoughts a day. This incessant background chatter that goes on in our heads is what is often referred to as a ‘Monkey Mind’. Our mind jumps from thought to thought in the same way a monkey jumps from tree to tree, pursuing one distraction after another. Meditation works to quieten the monkey mind, by
bringing the awareness to the present moment. It is the art of simply 'being' (our natural state as 'human beings') rather than 'doing'. Meditation promotes a state of awareness where one effectively becomes an impartial observer of the thoughts without engaging in them. As the mind relaxes, the ever expanding silence & stillness between the diminishing thoughts instils a deep sense of calm, peace and wellbeing in the mind & body.

5, 4, 3, 2, 1: A Simple Exercise to Calm the Mind

Stress can have an impact on our emotional and physical health. So, next time it all feels like too much, try this soothing exercise to guide you back into the present moment.  Begin by taking a few deep breaths, bringing extra attention to the exhale.  Name 5 things you can see. Name 4 things you can hear. Name 3 things you can feel. Name 2 things you can smell. Name 1 thing you can taste.

Tuning into the senses directs our awareness away from anxious thoughts and grounds us by focusing on the physical body. From this state of calm presence, we can meet whatever is troubling us with more steadiness and clarity. And when we support ourselves through the ups and downs, we also create more space to experience joy and peace in the simple pleasures.
