I created My Meditation Garden, as a result of all of the stress that I felt while practicing law and owning my own law firm. Meditation led me to realize law was not my calling and that I was actually miserable in that profession. Now, I am the editor of My Meditation Garden, a site which I created with the busy and stressed out parent, professional, entrepreneur, and college student in mind. My goal is to bring information about meditation, its benefits, and ways in which you can incorporate it into your daily life in easy to understand, plain English.
I've been requested by many readers to post more information on guided meditations as they have found them to be the easiest way to start a meditation practice to relief stress.
I have been meditating for about 9 months now and have seen and felt the incredible benefits it has had on my emotional, spiritual, and physical life. I am much calmer and have way less anxiety and migraines than ever before in my previous career (lawyer).
I created The Big List of Free Guided Meditations for everyone to benefit from and would love to get feedback on them. Which one you enjoyed most, which if any I should add to the list, etc.
I am constantly updating the list so any feedback will be greatly appreciated!
While yoga and meditation are proven by their use for centuries, some people still have difficulties to practice them. Biofeedback is another way to fight stress that combines similar mind-oriented techniques and real physiological measures. Example is paced breathing heart rate variability biofeedback tools.
