Experience the power of meditation with this simple 5-minute breath meditation

What is meditation?
(Likely not what you think.)

What in the world is meditation?

Does it look like…
Monks in yellow robes chanting, cross-legged?  
Hippies, sitting around naked under a full moon?  
Athletes participating in extreme sports?  
Children in public schools across the country?

(Yes, I've heard all these answers.)

Meditation is… wait for it…

A family of techniques that retrain your brain to focus its attention.

That’s right. It’s being fully present, in the moment.
Not necessarily without thoughts, but fully aware of what’s going on within and around you.

Your mind is conditioned to bounce around from one thought to the next. Which is awesome. (Except when it’s not.)

Ever wanted to quiet your mind, but it JUST. WON’T. STOP?

Me too. And, it's ok. There’s nothing wrong with you. You’re not bad at meditating. You’re normal.

Through practice we can train our minds to bring our awareness back to the present, where we can go beyond the thought or emotion and connect to our inner truth.

Below there’s a simple 5-minute meditation that people say is relaxing, regenerating, and super easy to follow along to.

The power of meditation - according to science

Today, there’s more and more scientific research on the benefits of meditation. Brain scans have shown that a regular practice can literally change your brain.

Meditation has been shown to help reduce stress, anxiety, depression, and addiction, and to help increase memory, sense of self, empathy, and the ability to concentrate.

Best mediation pose

The best meditation pose is one where you’re comfortable.

Straighten your spine. Open your chest. Relax your shoulders.

Relax your eyes and eyebrows. Close your mouth and breathe through your nose (if you can.) Your eyes can be closed or partially closed, gazing at a spot a little ways in front of you.

Use the audio below for a simple, guided, 5-minute breath meditation.
