Is it really Ten Minute Time Out Thursday already?
I can't believe the week has just flown by so fast.
I mean it is always better than those weeks that seem to just drag on and on. But anyway.....
Then today's topic has perfect timing.
We all get rushed for time. We all feel like we have to hurry up and wait. We all have to do this or that thing. And it can leave us feeling really frazzled.
Today's topic is all about meditation. Now before you go running away thinking I am not one of those crunchy hippies or into buddha. I am not going to talk to you about guided meditations or even finding a quiet place to be.
See I used to think the same way. I had all these preconceived notions and ideas of what meditation was and how it had to be done.
I also used to be sure that I would never be able to do it.
Boy was I wrong.
Now if you are one of the ones more advanced in your meditative skills and you are just looking for a cool new hack or tip. Here is the only one I have to give today. Check out http://calm.com. It can help you reach that level of ommmm much faster.
But for those of you out there like I was before I got it. Meditation does not have to be a mystery. It is not hard to do. And we all have done some form of meditation before.
This is an awesome quote I found today.
So see even if you think is going to be hard, you have already done it many times. And the thing I like about that quote is it gives us an idea of what mediation feels like. I use the thought of what a really good nap feels like sometimes to get myself to a relaxed state.
And like I said in the video I have used this technique every where from being at the hospital to just trying to center myself in my own house when I am having one of those mom days. (You know the one where you can't even pee in peace.)
Any kid in my house: “What do you mean you don't want an audience while you pee?”
My toddler: “Mom what's an audience?”
Me: “Never mind. *sigh*”
So if you find yourself in a moment where you just need to catch your breathe or just gain some peace or clarity for a second. Make sure to follow the tips I gave in the video. Breathing is key and allowing the thoughts that come to you to know you will address them in a minute or two.
So take ten minutes of your time today and focus on finding your zen! It will really help you out in that next moment of crazy that pops up in your life! We all have them.
Here's to Your Happiness, Health, Wealth, and Freedom!
