Bible Meditation Mind Health
Individuals that meditate do it differently. Some may meditate with low volume instrumental music playing in the background, while saying positive affirmations and doing deep breathe exercises. There are those that meditate in complete silence for a few minutes to half an hour. And there are other individuals that meditate for getting rid of a bad habit, such as smoking cigarettes, OCD conditions, drug addictions, and/or spiritual health.
Meditating using Bible verses is beneficial for Christians and non-Christian people. When meditating it's important to do deep breathe exercises, by inhaling through your nose, hold the air in for 2-4 seconds, and then exhale slowly through your mouth. The affirmations in meditation have to be spoken where you can actually hear them, and not just saying them in your mind.
