Monday Tips: Carve out some time to meditate

My tip for this month is to carve out some time to meditate.

“Don’t ask me to make time for one more thing!” you say.

I reply that even I, who am naturally rather lazy, have finally hit upon a perfect way to get some meditation into my crowded day. I do it immediately after getting up. There is something about being half asleep that makes your meditation practice go a whole lot easier.

“But I don’t have time!” you say.

I reply, “Set your clock for 10 minutes, and you will feel much better about starting your busy day. Find a comfortable seat so that you can sit with a straight back. Close you eyes, and breathe deeply. Focus on how you feel. Where are your aches and pains? How do you feel? Focus on breathing gently as you mentally massage those places. If you have any time left over, practice listening deeply to the sounds around you. And set your intention for the day. What do you want to accomplish? You will find that your ten minutes has passed, and now you can begin your day feeling refreshed and focused.”

Have a wonderful week!
