Feeling anxious? This 5 minute meditation will do the trick

In need of a quick and simple pick me up meditation guide? International Mindfulness Advocate, Neil Seligman and founder of The Conscious Professional can help bring you into a sense of calm with this five-minute meditation for anxiety

Only FIVE minutes we here you scream? We know, it’s something we all need in our day to day lives.

Mindfulness meditation has been the new kid on the block for quite a while now and is proudly dominating the health and well-being scene. Here for good, meditation is recognised for maintaining healthy well being, beating stress and soothing a chaotic mind.

Amongst all the huge benefits of meditation, anxiety is one of them. Research has shown meditation to significantly reduce anxiety by strengthening a person’s mind to regulate emotions.

It helps you to feel in the present moment by paying attention to the negative thoughts and emotions which we sometimes tend to ignore, hence causing the build up of feeling anxious.

By recognising these thoughts and emotions you become true to yourself and practice self love and self realisation. Meditation then breaks that barrier and provides a pathway to detach from the negative and shape a more positive, peaceful mind.
