This is part one of a series on stress management and relaxation through meditation here at Be a Lion (also available on itunes). Make sure to check out my future episodes to help you kick stress to the curb. You’ll learn about the benefits of meditation and get instructions, exercises, relaxation scripts, etc. to help you practice. Coming up shortly, I’ll also talk about stress prevention.
For today, I’m going to share a summary of the introduction I give in the podcast.. Of course click here for the full podcast with guided relaxation meditation script. Or click here for just the guided relaxation meditation.
Here’s a summary of my introduction to the guided meditation I give in the podcast:
Stress has serious effects on our physical wellness, our emotional well-being, and the day-to-day quality of our lives. As much as 80% of visits to doctors are due to stress-related issues. Stress seriously affect our personal relationships and also makes our experience of ourselves unpleasant. When we are under stress, it’s difficult for us to practice good self-care.
Through stress management and relaxation, you improve your life in large and small ways. If you’d like to counteract many negative consequences of stress, relaxation works wonders.
Furthermore, the power of meditation is beginning to be recognized in the scientific community. According to the Mayo clinic, meditation helps you get a new perspective, the more self-aware, manage stress, focus on the present, handle unpleasant emotions, and even helps with certain health and emotional issues.
I hope this introduction is helpful and enjoy the podcast!
