Meditation in bed in the morning – what are the benefits?
These are the good reasons why I recommend you start your day with a short meditation:
1. A loving start to the day: meditating in bed in the morning is like giving yourself a warm, heartfelt hug. It is an act of self-love in which you gently accompany yourself into the day. The hustle and bustle can wait – start the day with a 5-minute meditation to find your inner peace and tune into the positive possibilities ahead.
2. Connect with yourself: Meditating in bed in the morning allows you to connect deeply with yourself. You can shut yourself off from external distractions and simply immerse yourself in your inner world. This is a moment of self-love and mindfulness that you have earned. You will be amazed at how strong you will feel when you take time for yourself on a regular basis.
3. Fill up with positive energy: a morning meditation in bed gives you the opportunity to prepare yourself for the day in the best possible way. Presence and stillness in your mind give you great strength. It will then be easier for you to formulate positive intentions for the day. This gives you all the energy and motivation you need to master the challenges of everyday life. By focusing on the good, you will be able to shake off the negative energies of everyday life more easily.
4. Stress reduction and relaxation: Everyday life can often be stressful before you even leave the house. With meditation in bed, you can reduce stress before it overwhelms you. Close your eyes, breathe deeply in and out and feel the tension release from your body. Relaxed and serene, you will look at the day through different eyes.
5. An oasis of creativity: morning time is creative time! By engaging in a 5-minute meditation in bed in the morning, you open the gates to your creative side.

How to start your morning meditation
The most crucial factor to start morning meditation in bed is to follow a routine. Place a compact pillow in a corner of your bed where you can sit or kneel comfortably. Once you have found a comfortable position, close your eyes, take a deep breath and begin the meditation. Let thoughts just be there – they don’t interfere, but don’t pursue them either. Pay attention to your breath and let it flow in and out calmly. Keep at it every day.
Tips for successful morning meditation
It is important to give your morning meditation some time to take effect before you jump into your daily activities. Set a time limit for yourself when you meditate in the morning and stick to it. It can be 5 minutes – but it can also be 15 minutes. Whatever fits into your daily routine. Sit up straight – don’t meditate lying down in the morning – so you don’t fall asleep. Instead of getting rid of thoughts, let them be, close your eyes and concentrate on your breathing to calm it.
