"Only certain people can meditate" - I heard many clients saying that. But is that really true?
Hi, I'm Corina, a certified meditation coach and I'm here to let you know that you can practice meditation if you really want to.
Myth 1: You have to sit cross-legged when meditating
Not a must: Sitting with a straight spine, lying down or going on a walking meditation can help relax the body and mind and being in touch with your spirit.
Myth 2: You don't want to focus all your attention on yourself
We prioritise everyone else because it's selfish to focus on ourselves. But remember that you won't be able to pour from an empty cup. Fill up your cup first, you deserve it.
Myth 3: You don't practice yoga
But you are breathing and that's what matters. Every time you take a conscious breath, you are giving your mind a break and that's all you need to receive a new insight.
Myth 4: You can't quiet your mind
No need to, focus on your breath and watch your thoughts without interacting with them, like when you watch the beautiful fluffy clouds in the sky.
Myth 5: You don't have time to just sit and be
Think about how many hours you spend scrolling on social media? Do you have time for that? Or just looking for distractions? Only a few minutes a day of pausing and conscious breathing will give your mind a break from your worries and fears.
Myth 6: You have an overactive mind jumping all over the place
Who doesn't? The aim is to bring your awareness back to your breath or a mantra every time your mind wanders.
