Most brain specialists will tell you that one of the best things that you can do for your brain to heal is mindfulness aka meditation. Calming the brain into a relaxed state not taxed by thoughts can make you feel less anxious, more positive & even help manage pain! These are only a couple of the benefits shown in studies.
Jumping straight to “emptying your mind” is likely too much for a beginner, even concentrating on your breath won’t be enough. Therefore, I created other exercises to help me as I progressed my skills in mindfulness. I will cover some of these in the blog. As reading can be a challenge with a mild TBI please let me know if you want me to post audio recordings of the mediation exercises & I will arrange for some to be made.
For all exercises make sure that you won’t be disturbed throughout.
