4 Mindfulness and Meditation Practices For Busy People
Have you ever wondered how you can possibly find the time to practice mindfulness when you are so busy with your daily activities.
It seems that it is challenging enough to keep up with your tasks at work and staying sane at the same time.
Here are four ways to make mindfulness a part of your life without modifying your schedule.
1. In the Shower
Whenever you take a bath or a shower use this time to cleanse your energy. Take some deep breaths and visualise the water washing all of the stress and negative energy away. This can be a powerful technique for balancing your chakras and feeling great. Practice slowing down your breathing and feel the amazing power of the water.
If you have seen our spirit science video on water maybe you can also practice sending love energy to the water or put healing crystals near the faucet so that the water coming through your house is cleaned energetically too.
2. Tea & Drinks
If you drink any sort of herbal or natural beverage try slowing down. Take the time to savor the many smells and flavors of the drink. Take the time to breathe slowly, reflect, meditate and really be aware of that moment in your life. Visualise the healing that comes when you fill your body with good healthy fluids.
3. Eating with Awareness
Each little flavor, color and smell is a whole new adventure. Slow down and see if you can identify all of the ingredients. Observe the impulse to eat specific foods and the impulse to eat fast. Slow down your mind and ask yourself why you feel those things.
Imagine the healing effects that your food will have on your body. Are you giving your body what it needs to feel whole, stay healthy and thrive? Observe the taking in of energy. This food is the basics that feed your body, mind and soul.
4. Waiting in Line
Waiting anywhere can be a great place to begin meditating. Slow everything down in your mind. Observe the people or objects around you. Take in the beauty and observe your feelings.
If you are safe to do so, close your eyes half way and take a deep breathe. Go inside yourself mentally and focus on your breathing. Observe the amazing chemical exchange going on inside your lungs with each breath. Oxygen to carbon dioxide over and over.
If you don’t have a regular practice take some time to at least stretch each day. You can do this while waiting for your morning coffee to brew, while waiting for your ride to come for work or while watching a movie at home. There are many times where we can stretch and keep our body loose and receptive while also practicing meditation.
