Beat the Exam Stress with Meditation!

VTU Students are going through a tough time during this semester. In order to study efficiently it is necessary to have worry free mind. A simple 10 minutes of meditation every day before studying is said to increases one's concentration level and have better focus while studying.

Download Experience Meditation: Stillness app from google play store, and practice the 9 minutes of stage 1 calmness exercise before you sit for studying.

Short Description of the App. Experience Meditation

"Stillness in the body causes Stillness in the mind. Therefore, a bodily posture without the slightest of movements is the basic foundation of meditation. 

This technique in this app is to be practiced before commencing any form of meditation as it forms the foundation of all meditation techniques and therefore is considered the first step towards experiencing Meditation!
The aim of this app through guided meditation is to induce psychic rigidity in the body, this happens with an increased conscious awareness of the body, after which you no longer would be able to feel the body.
Awareness is shifted to the breath as you are no longer conscious of your body. Soon you are left with just awareness. At this stage, the mind and body are ready to take up meditation.
Once you have perfected through repeated practice the art of inducing stillness in the mind and the body, you can achieve the state of Meditation in a matter of minutes"
