Dr Oz: 10-Minute Meditation Technique & Meditation Health Benefits

Andy Puddicombe says you need just 10 minutes a day to meditate and calm your mind. Learn his technique and see just how easy it really is to bring a little “ohm” to your life.

Dr. Oz says he knows the amazing health benefits that meditation can provide, like lowering blood pressure and reducing stress, but he admits to struggling with working it into his daily routine. He admitted the biggest challenge for him and to settle in and calm down because his mind is always racing. Does that sound familiar? I bet a lot of us have a hard time turning off the switch of our thinking, but what if all you needed was 10 minutes a day? Do you think you could commit to meditating?

Dr Oz: 10-Minute Meditation

At the age of 22, meditation expert Andy Puddicombe left college and decided to become a Buddhist monk. He told Dr. Oz he was having a tough time, which led to a lot of unhealthy behavior like drinking too much alcohol, so he decided to quit school and move to India to become a monk. Andy says he does not recommend his method to find more calm in your life, but if you have just 10 minutes a day, you can change your life for the positive.

  1. Set aside 10 minutes a day
  2. Download the Free Headspace meditation app or set an alarm or timer
  3. Find a space where you will be undisturbed
  4. Sit up straight with your hands relaxed on your lap
  5. Take a deep breath in through your nose and out through your mouth and slowly close your eyes.
  6. Mentally scan your body, starting at your head, making a note of how it all feels.
  7. Do not try to change anything. Just pay attention to what feels comfortable and what feels uncomfortable.

You can find Andy Puddicombe’s full 10-minute meditation video on Dr. Oz’s website. Have you ever meditated? If not, what holds you back? If so, do you think it has made a difference in your life?
