5 ways to boost your mental health

1. Meditation

Meditation is a well established method to boost mental health.

Benefits of meditation include decrease in stress, anxiety and depression; better focus, enhanced attention, and an improvement in the perceived quality of life. Meditation helps the executive functioning of the brain, and is shown to prevent the age related thinning of grey matter - keeping the brain sharp and agile with age.

More importantly meditation provides a much needed pause to the mind. In this pause, the mind rests and the body heals. The deep quiet of meditation has a nourishing effect on the mind.

Whether you are starting out or have meditated before, you can experience the depth of meditation in one of my guided meditation classes. I’ve designed these classes specifically to get the most out in a short period of time. Sign up for a class today and experience a calm and clear mind.

When we bring attention to the breath, we become grounded in the present moment. The mind that is wandering all over the place, becomes focused. It connects to the Now.

Bringing your attention to the breath during the day whenever you can remember, helps you be grounded and focused throughout the day. It can also help overcome anxiety, worry and negative thoughts and emotions.
