Meditation Tip 15 – End Your Meditation with a Smile


Meditation is an incredibly fulfilling practice, especially as one deepens their commitment over time. Every part of meditating is special, from beginning the session, to sinking deeper into self-reflection, to closing your meditation. Ending your meditation on a positive note will have a myriad of benefits for your mood, your continued practice, and the rest of your day. At the end of your meditation, open your eyes slowly and gently and spread a big smile across your face.


The benefits of smiling are well established, and when this act closes a serene meditation session, it’s even more powerful. You express gratitude through your smile, acknowledging how thankful you are for your practice and your life. Smiling to end your meditation will help ease you into your day and will ensure that you face whatever may come with tranquility and self-awareness.
