Stress is no joke. It can ruin your health, your relationhips and your happiness. That's why it's so important that you work out a way to release the build up of pressure and tension that excess stress causes in your body.

One of the simplest ways to do this is meditation. Now before you dismiss this because you find it hard to sit still or slow down your mind I urge you to read on.

One thing I know for sure is that there is a meditation technique that works for everyone. It's just a matter of finding the one that will work for you. I know because I studied more than 120 different meditation techniques before I understood what would and wouldn't help me to relax deeply and quickly.

To make it simple there are really only to types of meditation. The first is what I call 'passive' meditations. These are the type where you use your mind and awareness to slow down your mind and relax your body.

The second type is what I call 'active'meditations. This type of meditation is for people who really find it hard to relax, get rid of stress or have a very active mind. These are the most effective meditations for anyone who has ever ried 'traditional' meditation that haven't worked for them.

Before we talk more about 'active' meditations let's look at some of the reasons why meditation is so good for you.

Meditation is scientifically proven to lower your heart rate
and blood pressure, change brain wave functions and reduce stress and tension in the physical body.

Meditation is a convenient, practical and relaxing way to spend quality time with yourself without the usual distractions that come with a busy or hectic lifestyle.

The purpose of many meditations is to slow down your mind and brainwave functions. As this happens, your body starts to relax. This is how sleep works. The deeper we sleep, the deeper your body relaxes and de-toxifies. The result being that we wake up feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

Meditation can achieve the very same result while you are awake. The secret is to get your brainwave functions to slow down so that your body believes it is in deep sleep. Then, even after just a few minutes of deep meditation, you will notice a massive difference in calmness and energy.

There are very few ways to naturally enhance the quality of your life and meditation is one of the simplest. It is fun, convenient and gives you a calmness on the inside that nothing else I have ever experienced can bring to you.

If you want to put an end to stress and the pain it can bring to your life and those you love, then find an active meditation that helps you to relax deeply and quickly. Then keep on using it until your can sit quietly anytime and anywhere and fall into the deepest relaxation effortlessly.
