Seniors Guided Meditation - Sitting or Reclining
Being a boomer, I am in the age group where I'm exploring meditations for health
and relaxation more than ever.

eyes. Clasp your hands in your lap, or rest them at your sides. If sitting, let

breathe in and out evenly and moderately up to 50 counts or another even number.
Count 1 breathe in
Count 2 breathe out
Count 3 breathe in
Now that your breathing is
regular leave the counting behind and think of a positive thought, or
alternately, picture a sun rising, watching it emerge over the horizon warming
your body and lighting and lightening your inner vision. Mentally enjoy basking
in the sun's warmth for as long as you like.
Finish your meditation by
taking a nap or going to sleep for the night, or if you wish to arise, take a
final deep breath in, slowly let it out, open your eyes, stand up and stretch.
