Meditation is part of the wellness coaching offered at Unity Physiotherapy & Wellbeing, along with yoga and compassionate mind training. Meditation helps us connect to ourselves, noticing what’s present and trains the mind to come back to our point of focus when it drifts to another focus and it nurtures our wellbeing.
Meditation can be part of an overall plan to help you manage pain and stress, and ultimately look after your health and wellbeing.
Meditation is an awareness state, where the mind is calm yet alert, which trains our concentration and attention. It can have many benefits including training our attention and concentration, improving cognition, increasing self-awareness, calming the nervous system, improving vagal tone, and it can potentially help change and manage pain. Meditation could be seen as something that trains our attention, nurtures wellness & thriving.
‘Connect, Notice & Nurture With Meditation’
There is a common misconception that meditation is about relaxation and stopping thinking, it’s not although a relaxation response and a calmer mind (not one absent of thoughts) are often by-products of meditation because it stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system (rest-digest response) and gives an anchor for our mind to keep being returned to. There are many different forms of meditation practices, which can be seated or laying practices with a point of focus, for example the breath, a word, phrase or image.
