Micro meditations

In a perfect world we would all meditate twice a day for 30 minutes… at least.

But it’s not a perfect world.

It’s a busy, crazy, wonderful, sometimes stressful and chaotic world.

With demanding jobs, families to take care of, kids to raise, and countless other things vying for our attention.

When it comes to meditation, even a brief moment of mindfulness is beneficial.

One deep mindful breath can have benefits.

So here are a few ideas for when you have a chance to grab a moments break.

  • Close your eyes (if possible) and take a deep slow breath
  • Notice the sensation of the air entering your nostrils.  Is it cold or warm?
  • Concentrate on the sensation of your lungs expanding
  • Quickly scan over your body.  Are there any areas of tension?  Can you relax your stomach muscles?  Drop your shoulders?  Are you frowning?
  • Release the breath slowly through your mouth
  • Concentrate on the breath as it leaves your body.

Open your eyes, keep calm, and carry on 🙂
