As Americans, it’s commonplace to hear someone say, ‘I don’t have time for that.’ And it’s true. Our lives are non-stop, it can feel like we are on a hamster wheel rushing from thing to thing. But what if you could make a simple, easy change to your life that requires no more than 15 minutes and will change your perspective on most everything and make you feel better?
Meditation can ground you in the here and now. Meditation can give you ‘just a moment’ in the morning before your day begins to pause. Pause and give space. There are some super simple, easy ways to squeeze meditation into your life too. And it isn’t as scary as it sounds.
1) Most every smart phone has access to a ‘Meditation App.’ These apps often include a timer, or even guided meditation options. You can program any amount of time too – even 5 minutes makes a difference.
2) Try getting someplace (a work meeting or a yoga class) a few minutes early and sit, breathe and allow your mind to be in the same place as your body.
