Meditation will lower your stress hormones.
And there are other benefits- people who meditate regularly have been found to focus better, keep calm, and make better decisions in stressful situations. We also have evidence that you can let go of extra weight much easier when your stress levels are down. You don’t have to meditate every day but the more frequently you do it, the better you’ll get. Take it from me, even five minutes can work wonders for your mental and physical health. These are the kinds of meditations I use myself, and do with my clients to bring about energy, focus, confidence, competence, and calmness.

(Music: Khumjung, by Ben Leinbach. From the album Calling Wisdom.) It’s a relaxation meditation that can bring down your stress, help you to focus better, sleep better, and help your body to work bettter in general.
Meditation with purpose.
I created the three meditations below for both relaxation and specific purposes: 1) manifesting an optimal day; 2) going within to get answers to difficult questions; and 3) rejuvenating your body and mind. We start with relaxation and then go into the specific mental focus exercise at the end. Please note I am not a psychologist, I’m an exercise physiologist, and I cannot guarantee these meditations will change your mind or your life. However, my clients and students like them, so you might too. Click the link to get the meditation.
Meditation can be an amazing manifestation tool. For years elite athletes have been taught how to envision their perfect shot, perfect goal, perfect game, in order to realize that vision, play their best, and win. You can use these very strategies to be YOUR best. This meditation can be extremely useful if you have an important event coming up in your future. It can also work wonders to make an average day better-than-average.
What do you do when a hard decision comes your way? Sometimes the answer is obvious. But sometimes, we have a gut feeling to do one thing, yet our logical side says we should do something else. When we’re making important decisions and we want it to be something we can stand behind, something we won’t regret, and something that reflects our true values, it often requires quiet contemplation and getting in touch with our inner wisdom. This is a guided meditation to help you get better connected to your inner wisdom and help you make those important decisions.
If you don’t have time to get enough sleep, meditation is a good temporary way to rejuvenate your body and mind. There are 3 great times to meditate: in the morning to start your day out right, in the evening to bring yourself down for sleep, or at a turning point in your day to get ready for something important. This is a great meditation to use at any of these times to refresh your mind and help your body to release any pent up stress.
