How you spend the next 299 seconds can have a profound effect on your mental health and physical well-being. You can begin to regulate your blood pressure and your heart rate, release anxiety, and deliberately access your para-sympathetic nervous system which aids your body to relax and renew, while calming the sympathetic nervous system, which stimulates the body's stress response.
Sound too good to be true? Try it for yourself! Master Teacher Jason Campbell has made it easy by composing and producing five minute meditation pieces. His Taoist 5 Element Music is designed to maximize just five minutes of your day for meditation. The notes chosen in each piece vibrate into your body at the appropriate frequency for you internal systems to recalibrate and reset. Sound vibrations breaks down negative thoughts and stagnant energy. The musical rhythm will regulate your breath and help you take deeper, more efficient breaths, which have been linked to better mindfulness and decreased anxiety.
Included below is a special bonus piece from an upcoming album due out later this year. Give it a try yourself and see how you feel in just 299 seconds.
