Relieve stress with a short meditation break
Meditation has been shown to help fight high blood pressure, insomnia and the many aggravations of day-to-day life. The benefits of meditation can be enjoyed just about anywhere. Here's how to fast-forward to inner peace in as little as a minute or two.
Find a quiet place where you will not be disturbed, and sit cross-legged on the floor. If you are at work, a straight-backed chair will do fine. Lying down to meditate is not recommended. If you lie down to meditate, there is a pretty good chance you will fall asleep.
Now, closing or half-closing your eyes, breathe in slowly through your nose, letting the air fill your lungs, all the way down to the diaphragm. Focus on the rising and falling of your abdomen. Most of us routinely take shallow breaths -- a few good deep ones should relax you and bring you fully into the present.
Imagine that your mind is a calm lake or a clear blue sky. Focus on that image. Continue to breathe deeply. Remain in the moment. From time to time, a random thought may enter your mind like a wave upon the water. Observe it for a moment -- without clinging to it, or disrupting your focus. Then, let it go. Every now and then, think about your breathing.
Stick with it, even though you may be frustrated at first. Eventually, you'll be able to meditate with your eyes open while washing the dishes, waiting to give a speech or stuck in traffic.

SCIENCE OF YOG AND SEE THE DIFFERENCE
