12-Minute guided meditation for anxiety relief

Feel cool, calm & collected in 12 minutes.

I’ve been trying to get back into meditation lately to calm my anxiety and feel a little more zen.

But sitting in silence isn’t as easy as it sounds when you have an over-active imagination. That’s why I LOVE guided meditation videos.

It’s sooooo much easier listening to the sounds of waves or Japanese chimes in the background, while someone talks soothingly to you for 10 minutes. There’s less chance for your mind to jump from ‘What’s for supper’ to ‘Oh crap, I forgot to finish that report today’ to ‘How much longer IS this?!’

WHY MEDITATE?

If you’re anxious, easily stressed, or prone to panic attacks, it’s important to take time every day to look after yourself. When you’re all frazzled, your health suffers – trust me, I know. Everything from the physical stuff (headaches, tummy aches, muscle aches, nausea, getting sick, racing heartbeat, etc.) to the mental stuff (depression, irritability, moodiness, sadness, snappiness, etc.).

Using guided imagery is an easy way to nip stress in the bud quickly. 

MEDITATING FOR ANXIETY RELIEF

You’d be surprised by how quickly you can de-stress and feel more relaxed by just breathing deeply for a few minutes. That’s all meditation is really –  just focusing on your breathing.

It’s a great way to release tension.

And the best part? You can do it anytime, anywhere, for as long as you like.

RELAXING GUIDED MEDITATION

If you’re new to meditating or find it hard to sit still without letting your mind float in ten different directions, guided meditation is a great solution.

It’s an easier way to block out distractions and calm your mind and body at the same time.

JUST 12 MINUTES

Block off some “me time” before work, over lunch, after a bath, or whenever you can squeeze in a few minutes and just practice deep breathing. This 12-minute guided meditation will help you feel less stressed and release built-up tension.

It’s like a mini holiday for your body and your brain.

  1. Hey!!
    Its an nice share..
    Yes, I agree to your words .

    Depression and anger both are conditions of mental state of a human being.

    Both of these disorders are dangerous for overall health conditions of human being. They both occur simultaneously, both are considered as companions.

    I must say this is the best share for people who really want to get relief from this problem.

    Additionally, I must say that Meditation is the best way to eliminate the stress and depression from life.

    To start with it may take ten, twenty, thirty or even more of these deep breaths for your mind to calm down but with practice you’ll be able to get to the same calmer state in a handful of breaths.

    Thanks a lot for sharing this..
    Keep doing good work..
    God Bless U!!

      Thanks Sapana – glad you enjoyed the post. 🙂

  3. I’m a big believer in the power of meditation, so I support this all the way. I don’t feel anxiety often, but when I do, it is necessary for me to shut down and meditate…usually that’s all it takes. 🙂 Happy New Year to you and your husband, Mel.
