Guided Beginning Meditation For Anxiety & Stress

It’s not uncommon to have issues settling into deep, restorative, effective meditation. The vast majority of us lead busy, hectic lives. We’re constantly faced with various stimuli: whether it’s our phone, our computer, our co-workers, our commute, or even our entertainment preferences, we’re incredibly overstimulated. We can see it in young people, too: the emergent generations have grown accustomed to constant stimulation, and their ability to focus is often diminished as a result.

With this in mind, it’s no surprise that meditation doesn’t always come naturally to those who attempt it. In fact, if it’s your first time attempting to meditate, you might find that the experience seems to make your mind more active than it was before. This might seem contradictory, but it actually makes perfect sense. After all, the fact that you’ve cleared out some space to sit and be conscious of your mind’s inner workings means that your busy, constantly active internal dialogue will come to the fore. You may become aware of things that you weren’t previously conscious of underlying concerns, worries, anxieties, and preoccupations, for example.

There’s no question that mindfulness meditation is good for our bodies and minds. But, all too often, it’s challenging to actually do. That’s where guided meditations like this one come in. With the help of an experienced, knowledgeable teacher, settling into meditation becomes significantly easier. In this mindfulness meditation, you’ll be led on a journey that will help you begin to transcend the stresses imposed by overthinking things. We tend to overanalyze so many aspects of our lives, especially in the 21st century. We’re presented with so many options and possibilities that it’s hard not to succumb to an excessive analysis of our various choices. This meditation will help you achieve a peaceful, relaxed, reflective state from which you’ll be able to gradually let go of your obsession with over-thinking.
