Meditation has been around for thousands of years, and it turns out it’s pretty good medicine for many people.
Not only can meditation help us reset and tune into ourselves by being more mindful and present, research also shows it carries a host of health benefits. For example, helping to ease anxiety, depression and chronic pain; lower blood pressure; and improve memory, sleep and concentration, among other positives. And for people living with IgA Nephropathy and other life-changing chronic conditions, meditation can help you feel calmer and more grounded in managing your disease.
In this episode, we are joined by Fraqnck Raharinosy, an expert in sound meditation who shares how meditation techniques can help, and how to integrate them into your daily life. He has also worked with us to produce a guided sound meditation for our IgAN community to take advantage of as part of our IgAN Mindful Moments with more tools to come.
Franck has been providing guided sound meditations since 2016 and his compassionate and warm energy shine through.
In this episode, we talk about:
- The benefits of meditating and various approaches, including how sound meditation works
- Actionable tips for incorporating meditation and promote mindfuness in your life, which can help boost coping and self-awareness
- How to prepare for your practice so that you are able to reach a blissful state and be fully present
And remember, mediation doesn’t take a lot of time. When you have a few minutes of alone time, you can sit down comfortably, take deep breaths in through your nose and out through your mouth focusing on your breathing and restoring energy. Meditation and activities that help center you can do wonders for your mental and emotional health. So try it out.
