Zen meditation is a simple yet peaceful way to start meditation for beginners as well as following a guided meditation for a short 10 minute break from reality. Guided zen meditation is the perfect introduction to deep breathing and learning how to focus your mind.
The word zen itself translates to mean "feeling peaceful and relaxed". This is exactly the feeling we're going after when we perform a zen meditation guided or alone. Many people prefer a zen meditation simply because the focus is more on deep breathing, relaxation and softening our bodies. Learning how to meditate can be a tough process but zen meditations can be an easy route in.
Meditation, especially guided meditation can help us relax and forget about our troubles during difficult times. 10 minute zen meditations like this one are perfect for a regular practice as you can listen to them daily without needing to change up what you're following. They can be used on a regular basis and still be just as powerful in 10 years time as they are today.
10 minute guided meditations are all you need to help lower stress, reduce anxiety and provide your mind and body with a greater sense of calm and peace than at any other time in the day. Find a quiet space and take 10 minutes from your busy schedule for a short practice.
Reducing stress is one of, if not the biggest factor in living a peaceful life. Especially in these unusual and unprecedented times, we can all do with lower stress for our minds and our bodies. Zen meditation, especially zen guided meditation is a way for us all to find some relief for a few minutes each day.
