Just a quick note today for anyone who could use a little boost—because wowzers, what challenging times right now!
Here’s a little meditation that might help you get through the day with a little more ease and grace:
- Get into a comfortable seat and bring your attention to your breath.
- Inhale for four counts, thinking, “Peace.”
- Exhale for four counts, thinking, “Love.”
- Continue with this peace-love mantra for at least five minutes.
- You could even use this mantra throughout the day, with your eyes open, while doing things at home or at work.
You could also think “I am” on the inhale and “Calm” on the exhale.
The main idea here is to take long, slow inhales and long, slow exhales. This will help soothe your nervous system and give you a chance to get back into balance. Try it now. 😉
Don’t underestimate the benefits of taking a few minutes to breathe deeply. It will have ripple effects into your family, co-workers, and maybe into your community. We can do our part right now to help the whole world heal, one slow breath at a time.
