Meditation Techniques

In our busy and hectic lives, where our senses are bombarded, meditation offers us some reprieve, and increased awareness of our mind and body. Various studies have shown that meditation exercises can do so much more for your wellbeing than just some temporary stress relief. Spiritual leaders and mental health experts teach many different meditation techniques. Wim Hof developed his own meditation technique. With the meditation techniques of the Wim Hof Method, you can take control over your own body and mind. Meditation techniques are also essential if you want to practice the other fundamentals of Wim’s method, which are cold therapy and conscious breathing. The combination of these three fundamentals will help you to live happier, healthier , and stronger!

Meditation techniques for better health

Meditation techniques have been practiced for thousands of years, and are considered a type of complementary mind-body medicine. Meditation exercises bring you in a deep state of relaxation, and give you a peaceful mind. The exercises create a sense of balance, calm, and peace that improves your mental health and wellbeing. Best of all, these benefits are not only present during the session; they help you stay calm over the course of the day. Furthermore, meditation techniques are known to be a guide in managing some medical conditions, like high blood pressure, considerable levels of stress, and particular types of anxiety.

Practice your meditation techniques

So how often do you need to meditate? Briefly put, there is no simple answer to this question. This is why we advocate that any meditation is always better than no meditation at all. So, if you are only able to do your meditation exercises once a week, this is not a problem. It is a good thing to start with a few meditation sessions per week and work the exercise frequency up to one session per day. If you find it difficult to meditate every day, then it is recommended to choose a set time, so that you can turn the meditation into a habit. When it becomes evident that you benefit from the meditation exercises, you can apply them more frequently and in specific situations (for example to release stress whenever it arises).

Learning Wim’s method is like studying from one of nature’s best students. My life long fear of cold is history. I now fully enjoy cold immersions, but the benefits are not limited to cold. I am now a better person and a happier being. I smile when facing life challenges.

After 8 months of daily Hoffing, puffing and cold showers I can claim to be cured of my 5 year burnout. Not having had a single cold or flu, my sore knee is working perfectly again, which was very painful the last 2 years. It is like a miracle, and I’m really grateful that our paths crossed.

Wim I hope to train with you someday. I love to jump into that cold water and climb that mountain with you. Your method has truly helped me with psoriatic arthritis. I am no longer taking Humira injections for my symptoms. I am controlling it with breathing, cold showers and ice baths.

I would have paid $10,000 for this, but that would not be enough because this has changed my life. I feel like I have taken Valium yet am supercharged. As a clinical psychologist my days can be very stressful. There is a stillness inside me now, and what I am really amazed by is the peace lasts.

I got anxiety 2+ years ago, and have had panic attacks every day since. Medicine helped a little. I came across your videos and started to walk my 2 miles a day in only a t-shirt at 20F degrees. Within 2 weeks my anxiety went away! I found it to be a miracle.

Cardiac and respiratory arrest began my life. Heart defect and cleft palate pushed diseases. Depression, lack of self-efficacy, and post traumatic stress disorder followed. The Wim Hof Method frees me: I am twenty-nine years old, and I love to live. Thank you!

From the 90s to 2012 I developed hayfever symptoms and had to take daily medications in order to cope. The effect of these medications only lasted for several hours. By using the Wim Hof Method training daily, my body has conquered hayfever symptoms since 2013.

I started the Wim Hof method in October of 2018, and now the holes I had in my brain are gone. My neurosurgeon was so impressed by the scans that he told me I don't have to come back anymore. I take this as proof that this method works to regenerate brain tissue.
