Besides being an ancient technique for relaxation, meditation is a simple but powerful alternative for revitalizing your spirit. As an effective method for loosening, it helps us keep our internal energy in tune with the atmosphere surrounding us; it is also the perfect way to show our gratitude to the universe and vent those imprisoned feelings that are unable to flow naturally.

Meditation is such an easy-to-do activity that despite being busy with a heavy schedule, you only need two minutes of daily practice to experience endless physical and emotional benefits; you could do it at the beginning of the day as a way to express your gratitude for a new day, or before you’re going to sleep, as a relaxation technique to get a night of deep sleep.

Before, we shared the importance of accompanying your meditation sessions with sounds of nature, which will help you transport your mind to a safe place where you can achieve peace of mind. Several scientific studies revealed that natural soundscapes stimulate the neural connections in your brain, reduce body stress, and activate the parasympathetic nervous system, which allows you to restore your balance. 

In a previous post, the sea was your companion during your meditation exercises, this time is the turn for the jungle; let yourself be wrapped by the sound of the wind caressing the tree leaves and experience its therapeutic effect.

Remember to apply these simple tips during your meditation session:

  1. Wear comfortable clothes

    Take off your shoes, you don’t need them for this! Instead, use clothes that allow you to move freely.

  2. Find a quiet place

    To get more concentration, it’s important to look out for a place where you can’t get distracted or interrupted.

  3. A good posture is important

    The proper way is to sit on the floor, on your knees or cross-legged, with a straight back and loose arms.

  4. Focus your attention on the sounds of nature

    Close your eyes, let your thoughts flow and imagine every detail of the environment: its smell, walking barefoot on the ground, and the wind moving the trees.
