Meditation is proven to have a long list of mind/body benefits, but standard meditation might not be your cup of tea. While I enjoy sitting and trying to quiet my mind, sometimes I simply can’t turn my thoughts off. When this happens, I turn to one of the many alternatives to traditional meditation.
Gong Bath Or Singing Bowls
Gong baths and singing bowls can be used for at-home meditation, but I strongly urge you to find a live local class. Not only are the sound frequencies the perfect mix of relaxing and uplifting, but the vibrations are a powerful part of the experience.
You can easily download binary beats on iTunes or Google Play, my favorites being from Sangita Prana Sound Healing. These soothing beats stimulate the brain, but you must use headphones to enjoy the full experience.
Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) Tapping is a growing trend in self-meditation, and a favorite of Louise Hay, Wayne Dyer, and Dr. Christian Northup. Head to The Tapping Solution on YouTube to quickly learn this alternative to traditional meditation.
Alternatives To Traditional Meditation
These are just a handful of alternatives to traditional mediation, each of which can boost your immunity, clear your mind, lower blood pressure, ease stress, and balance your mind and body.
