This guided meditation will improve your relationships

Maude Hirst, founder of Meditate with Maude, brings you a 10 minute guided meditation to boost self-awareness and confidence and impact your relationships 

In this ten minute guided meditation with yoga teacher Maude Hirst, she demonstrates how to create change in your relationships by understanding yourself better.

‘I want you to begin questioning what it is in a relationship that you really look for,’ Maude says. ‘More specifically – what parts of yourself do you want to be seen by someone else in a relationship.’

According to Maude, this begins with self-awareness and recognizing your insecurities. The road to improving the quality of your relationships starts within yourself.

Maude helps us understand the role that confidence and self-love play in not only our intimate relationships but also in our relationships with family and friends.

Meditation step #1 Sit comfortably

First, find a comfortable place to sit. I like to sit cross-legged. But if you have tight hip-flexors you might like to prop up your bottom with a cushion. Or sit with your back to a wall. Let your knees drop down towards the floor.

Meditation Step #2 Bring your mind back

When you meditate your mind will wander off. Don’t worry, that’s just what minds do. We’re programmed like that, so don’t beat yourself up. The trick is to notice when it happens and bring your mind back to your breath.

This way you’ll create a circular motion. Your mind wanders off. You notice and gently bring it back. No problem.

Meditation step #3 Stay alert

It’s easy to drift off when you’re meditating and you might feel yourself dropping off – don’t. Try to stay as conscious and alert as possible to experience the full benefits.
