Ten-Minute Meditations for Less Stress and More Joy
Are you curious about meditation but aren't sure how to start?
Do you want to reduce stress and have more clarity, focus, and overall joy in your life?
Maybe you've tried meditating in the past but had trouble sitting still or keeping up with your racing thoughts?
In this course, you'll learn how to meditate in the best possible way: by practicing meditation.
You'll get the opportunity to learn about and experience several meditation styles and techniques so you can find the one that works best for you.
These meditations are no more than ten minutes long so they can easily fit into your day.
With clear, logical, and straightforward explanations you will learn about the benefits and challenges of meditation, the proper technique for sitting and how to be still, and what to do with your mind and those racing thoughts.
There is also a shorter two-minute "desk meditation" for breaks at the office - or just or those days when you are short on time.
By the end of this course, you'll understand the basics of meditation and have everything you need to meditate whenever you like.
Here's to better sleep, a sharp and focused mind, and a more peaceful life!
