It might seem counterintuitive, but starting a meditation practice can be, well, rather stressful. Each of us has felt the pressures of life mount to the point you can’t function. Whether it’s work, school, family, friends, or a global pandemic, we’ve all had a moment where it all seems to be too much to handle. During these moments of craziness, chances are you take a few deep breaths to calm your body and mind. The cool thing is that there’s more to those deep breaths than you might think.
Mindfulness meditation is the best way to calm yourself down during those stressful moments. It focuses you on the present both physically and mentally. It’s all too easy to forget to pay attention to your mind. What’s even better is that there’s a meditation that suits everyone based on their own personal zodiac sign. Finding the right meditation suited for your zodiac sign will allow you to hone in on weaknesses or areas in your life that might need extra tending to. While one person might need to be grounded and grateful another person might need a perspective shift. Let’s check it out!
Aries (March 21 – April 19): Aries tend to be a little impatient with people and come off as moody and aggressive. Try to practice compassion meditation to shed frustration and aggression you might feel. Taurus (April 20 – May 20): So you’re stubborn and hate change. Try opening yourself up to spontaneity and become aware of your stress and anger. Gemini (May 21 – June 20): You’re fast-paced and a little on edge. Gemini’s nervousness and unsettledness get in the way, so its best to engage your senses to settle your nerves and make you aware of everything around you. Cancer (June 21 – July 22): More than any other sign, Cancer’s feel their emotions much more strongly. You can be extremely negative when it comes to yourself.
