Here’s a Sample of the “Stress Relief With Breathing” Guided Meditation Script:

Welcome to this simple meditation to relieve stress.

Get into a nice position where you can be upright, elongating the spine.

It is best to be seated in the traditional meditation position with legs crossed, but if you need to have your back supported, you may sit in a chair.

Gaze around with your eyes, taking note of your surroundings.

See the colors clearly.

Notice things that are completely still around you, like the ground, furniture, and structures.

Can you become aware of anything around you that has movement?

Look around without putting labels on the things you see, just observe their colors, textures and patterns.

Notice how far away things are from you, or how close they are.

See how the light lays upon things, illuminating them.

Allow your mind to naturally find a spot in front of you to fixate on.

Begin to slowly blink your eyes, and do not look away.

Feel the relaxation within the darkness each time you blink.

Repeat think until your eyes want to naturally close.

When you close your eyes, notice a gentle wave of relaxation sweep over your entire body.

Bring your awareness to your breath, what is it like?

Did you take a nice inhale as soon as you focused on your breathing?

Pay close attention to how your lungs expand and contract with your breath.

It is a very natural and gentle sensation.

Noticing how your belly also expands and contracts easily as you breathe.

Allow the breath to relax you.

In and out…..

Expand and contract….

Refresh and relax…..

Inhale and exhale…..

Kevin Wood

Before I realized words were my calling, I was stringing together language of a different sort, code. I taught myself to program while in school (for philosophy), and built WordPress sites for a living. It was a grind, but it was fun. Until it wasn’t. Lucky for my sanity, I found this little thing called writing. Now, I write in the technology space, it was a natural extension of my skills. I know tech and I know writing. Why not combine them.
And that brings us to the present day. Creating epic content for tech-related websites, startups, SaaS businesses, and high-traffic online business and marketing blogs. I only write for companies who I’m passionate about.
