Relaxation Meditation Room


This remarkably easy Relaxation Meditation makes use of a little-known secret about the eyes. Allowing your eyes to rest in a soft downward gaze has an instant, automatic relaxing effect.

 Steps of Relaxation Meditation

  1. Sit comfortably.
  2. Allow your eyes to gaze comfortably downward, letting your focus go "soft" - not focussed on anything in particular.
  3. Without closing your eyes completely, let your eyelids drop to a level that feels most comfortable.
  4. Continue gazing downward. You may notice your breathing becoming more rhythmic.
  5. It's ok to let your attention drift a bit. If your eyes become very heavy, it's ok to let them close. If you notice you've come out of your relaxed space, simply bring your attention back to your relaxed downward gaze.

Benefits of this meditation:
• Relaxation and stress reduction

• Increased alertness

• Can be used as a regular 10 - 15 minute meditation, or for an effective 1 - 2 minute stress-buster or a quick relax and recharge break
