Asperger’s Syndrome Meditation

You may have heard or read that meditation is a wonderful aid in combating anxiety and stress, as well as helping with sleeplessness, and dealing with situations where you feel bombarded by noise, people or other environmental factors.

It’s easy to think that this information is great for other people, but not those with Asperger’s. People with Asperger’s Syndrome often face difficulties with overstimulation and the resulting problems, such as difficulties with focus and concentration, among other things.

The good news is that the right teacher or recorded meditation combined with the right environment can make meditation and mindfulness a positive experience for someone with Aspergers. Choosing a meditation practice that takes your particular requirements into consideration can provide a wonderful respite; helping you to achieve the peace and stillness that can bring you the following benefits:

  • Freedom from distractability
  • Reduction of anxiety and stress
  • Allow your mind and body to feel more connected
  • A chance to be fully present in the moment without worrying about the past or the future, resulting in a richer enjoyment of what is happening at that moment.
  • Relaxation
  • Learning new skills and techniques to help you be more in command of your emotions

With the right environment, teacher and language, people with Asperger’s Syndrome can achieve the wonderful rewards of a regular meditation practice. The trick is in tailoring the resources to suit you instead of the other way around.

My hope for you is that the meditation and mindfulness practices you learn bring you relief.
