All you need for mediation is your body, your mind and your breath.

How often have you said to yourself “I've had enough”, “I can't take any more”, “Just give me a break” and you've struggled to find the peace and quiet you need to get your thoughts together, or the strength to carry on.

Think back to the last time you had a break. Can you remember how you felt? Did you return feeling relaxed and recharged?

Meditation is like taking a short holiday where you can unwind, release tension and anxiety and feel totally refreshed. It gives you the opportunity to be still, calm and in control.

When you pause to listen to birds sing, watch waves lapping against the shore or just sit in silence, you are within those moments meditating.
Meditation means awareness. Awareness of the here and now, as when your mind is completely free from distraction it is fulfilled in the moment. You can meditate whilst you’re walking, sitting or lying down. It might take a while to learn how to shift all the thoughts from your head, but with practice it is achievable and you'll soon find that 5 minutes of meditation feels as great as a good night’s sleep.
Meditating on a regular basis has many health benefits. Hopefully you'll discover you're able to cope with stress better, sleep can improve, you're happier within yourself, and hopefully you'll find you will have more control over your life.

Meditation unites the mind, body and spirit. It quiets your body and brings closure to your thoughts so you can start afresh with renewed energy.
