Try this meditation technique
Gain clarity and stop your mind racing with this simple, super-fast Ayurvedic meditation technique. ‘Bee breathing’ works well when your mind is in overdrive, ‘because the sound you make is a distraction, and your mind loves a distraction,’ says Danielle Marchant, author of Pause Every Day (Aster). ‘Practising bee breathing regularly helps to calm your central nervous system, so over time you’ll find it easier to meditate.’ To get started, find a quiet, comfortable place, close your eyes and put your thumbs in your ears to block out the senses of sight and sound. Inhale and, on the exhale, make a humming sound to create an internal vibration that sounds like a buzzing bee. Repeat for 10 breaths, focusing on the hum. When you open your eyes, scan your body and notice how much clearer and calmer you feel.
