For the 5th month of the year, we’d like to introduce you to 5 great new May-ditation techniques to try out!
1. Body Scan meditation
- Also known as progressive relaxation
- Option 1: Slowly tightening and relax one muscle group at a time throughout the body from top to bottom, or vice versa
- Option 2: Imagine each part of your body fully relaxing, from the top of your head to the tips of your toes. Relax your eyebrows, relax your jaw and let your mouth open slightly, relax your neck muscles, imagine your head sinking further into the pillow, etc.
- TIP: Imagine a gentle wave flowing through you
2. Visualisation relaxation
- Positive scenes, images, or figures that will relax you or motivate you
- Use all 5 senses to visualise yourself wherever you want to be
- Can imagine a person with you, exploring a familiar scene

- Concentration with awareness -> focus on an object or your breath

4. Movement meditation
