Try This 10-Minute Guided Meditation To Tune Inward & Release Stress
Stress can strike any moment, without warning. It's an inevitable part of being human, but there is something we can do to offer ourselves some relief.
As a certified yoga instructor, reiki master, and sound healer, I created this 10-minute, guided meditation for de-stressing that you can do anytime, anywhere. Singing bowls offer an especially calming and releasing effect, and the meditation itself will allow you to tune inward and receive a moment of peace.
In a guided meditation, an instructor leads your through your meditation—whether that's in-person, online, or through an app or website offering prerecorded meditations. However you choose to do it, guided meditations are a great way to tune in and get centered, especially if you have a hard time struggling to meditate on your own.
And while this meditation is specifically for stress relief, you can find different guided meditations for everything from balancing your chakras, to getting more energy.
Carve out the 10 minutes you'll need, and find somewhere you can sit uninterrupted. Press play, and let's begin.
There's no question we live in a stressed-out society, but that doesn't mean we have to be. Meditation is such powerful tool to help us stay grounded, and it's available to us whenever we may need it.
Keep this meditation on hand for the next time you need it, along with other methods like sound healing and breathwork, to help you stay on top of stress.
