Meditation Or Entertainment

What’s this new Plane Meditation Technique?

Some of you might hate traveling in planes, and how do you guys kill time in there?

By pretending to be asleep, do your official work, or simply watch an entire movie or TV Series!

Halloo Netflix!

But what if say that you can also do another thing which is equally and more peaceful. Yes, meditation is the answer.

If I had the choice to opt between meditation and entertainment, I would definitely go with the entertainment. Like who really wants all peaceful and quiet while up in the air!

But you can try out something new this time, by choosing the meditation. I tried it, and it went really good!

Airplane Meditation

So, how does the Plane Meditation work?

Make sure that you have started off the process before taking the seat on the plane. Many airports have dedicated yoga rooms for the people who are facing pre-flight nervousness. You can choose that room, and get some benefit and peace for a while.

The second tip that you can try is Focussing on your breathing. No matter where you can stand, try inhaling and exhaling long breaths and try it for about 8 times. You will find yourself calmer than before.

The third point to note is the Posture. Take a comfortable position, make sure that there is nothing blocking in between your feet. Keep some space between both the feet, and you could also remove out your shoes and relax. Get the best comfortable position before the plane takes off.

The fourth step will be to close your eyes, and repeat a few positive sentences like ‘I am safe’, ‘I am calm’, and ‘I am at ease’. You can choose any of them or even create your own. Keep on repeating the sentences for 10 to 15 minutes, and feel the difference.

That’s how you meditate on a Plane! You can also install a meditation app on your phone and follow the instructions as given on it.
