Try these meditations and find the ones you like the most. Then put meditation in your schedule and practise every day. That’s where you will really start to benefit. You can use them when you need them (e.g. when you are stressed or can’t sleep) but it’s also great to practise them regularly.
If you find that meditating brings up difficult memories or feelings in the body, experiment with letting the feelings just be there and not following or pushing away the memories. It’s totally normal for difficult experiences to show up when we meditate. The key is how we relate to them.
Obviously, if you find yourself getting distressed, open your eyes, or take a break, or try a different meditation. If any distress persists, please consider reaching out for help. Contact the wellbeing support service provided by your agency, or talk it out with Beyond Blue on 1300 224636 24/7 and they will point you in the right direction.
