We’ve been talking a lot about meditation and the benefits of doing it everyday. As a Practitioner and a Coach, I know how important it is and how much it can change your life. But as a mother and a business owner, I know how hard it can be to find a spare 20 minutes and some time alone. Every. Single. Day.
Well, here’s the good news… meditation doesn’t have to be difficult or time-consuming. You can actually meditate without giving it much thought! Achieving a meditative state can happen during many activities that you do often… things like:
- Washing the dishes
- Mowing the lawn
- Going for a long walk or run
- Driving home from work
- Using the elliptical machine or treadmill
- Sweeping the driveway
Really, any repetitive behavior that lulls you into a rhythmic activity works… by focusing on the task itself – what your body’s doing, what your breath is like, how your muscles feel – these simple activities put you in a meditative state. All of these things (and many more!) are meditative activities you can use for your benefit. So how about instead of complaining about the chores on your to-do list, next time use the opportunity to help you gain more peace and clarity!
Post a comment below and let me know how you use everyday activities to help you meditate! In the meantime, here’s to a happy, healthy, and prosperous 2016!
