Got 10 Minutes? Meditate.
It's day 4 of the Renew Challenge.
Reviving your life requires peace of mind. Meditation is an ideal way to clear the mind in a short amount of time. If you are seeking a dynamic meditation practice, walking meditation, also known as mindful walking, requires you to move in the environment. It reaps many of the same benefits of traditional meditation.
One study found that meditation reduced everyday anxiety by as much as 39%. Brain scans show meditation reduces perception of pain and experiences of anxiety.
Not sure how to meditate? No problem. These resources might help:
- Follow the steps in The 10-Minute Mindfulness Meditation to Clear Your Mind.
- Read our blog post on Meditation 101: Know Your Options.
- Listen to a guided walking meditation in A Daily Mindful Walking Practice.
After you give meditation a try, tell us how it went in the HNHN Facebook group or post a picture of yourself after meditating on Instagram. Tag @healthynurseUSA and #healthynurse so we can encourage each other.
