Being able to relax and be calm helps us to reduce our stress. Meditation is not just about sitting crossed-legged on the floor and clearing our minds.
By taking some deep breaths we start to feel and become calmer. Lots of meditation techniques use the breath as a focus.
In the Soul Essence meditation groups or one to one meditation, I go with what people are comfortable with, chairs and cushions are available. I will normally use my voice and guide people through the meditation
To relax with meditation you need to accept thoughts will come into your mind when you first start, when they do just bring your focus back to the voice or your breath. The more you do this the longer you will be able to clear your mind and start to relax.
Being able to relax and be calm will help you sleep, lower your blood pressure, and relax in general.
