Friday's Makes, Bakes & Learns #12

My Turkish Delight Vodka which I made in week #9 is still not ready to drink - boo!

My learn for today is Meditation

I've been meditating on and off for a good few years now - I'm trying to do it every day.  It is great to help you relax, de-stress and is great for wellbeing.

My favourite way to meditate is with sound (rather than breath).  Find yourself a quiet spot and relax all the parts of your body starting from your head and working your way down to your toes and then concentrate your mind to the sound.

Your mind will still fill with thoughts but you need to just let them come and go.  I tend to use a sound either in the house (washing machine spinning!) or a noise outside and concentrate your mind on that sound or a CD.

Another method I love is visualisation through a guided meditation by Jude at The Beeches.  She has such a soothing voice and the visualisation is fab.  I always feel calm and relaxed after listening to this. You can buy the CD by contacting Jude

There are meditation classes available to attend (try googling) - I first saw a practitioner locally and I felt totally relaxed, calm and able to conquer the world after that one session!

I also attended a Buddhist meditation class which was an amazing experience! link & link
