How to do this Meditation
When you’re struggling with mental exhaustion, you may not know where to turn. While there are countless lifestyle changes you can make, adding meditation to your routine can help. Fortunately, this Kundalini Yoga meditation is straightforward and effective.
Before you get started, find a space in which to practice. It is worth lighting some relaxing incense sticks and dimming the lights. When you’re ready, sit down and follow these steps.
Start by sitting in Easy Pose, or any position that is comfortable to you. Ensure that your back is as straight as possible at all times.
Next up, bring the thumbs across the palms on each hand. The thumb tip should rest at the base of the ring finger. You might need to stretch a little to get this right.
The backs of your hands need to be together. Bring your hands up to the level of your Heart Center. Press the backs of them together firmly for this meditation.
While your fingers need to be closely pressed together, the top of your hands don’t need as much tension. Keep that in mind when you’re getting into the right position here.
Avoid locking your arms during this meditation. Your arms and elbows should be loose and relaxed. Whenever you feel as though you’re tensing your muscles, release that pressure.
Breathe in deeply for eight separate parts through your nose. When you’ve done that, breathe out completely in eight equal parts. Repeat this as you meditate.
You can do this meditation for between 11 and 31 minutes. If you are new to the world of meditation, you may want to start with a short session. However, as you gain in both confidence and skills, you should find that it is simple to meditate for a longer period.
