You don’t have time to meditate?
Even though I totally don’t believe you, I’m going to play into your belief (just for a moment) that you don’t have time to treat yourselves well. You don’t even have enough time for a short meditation or to implement simple relaxation techniques.
I hear it every single day —
“I don’t have time to exercise.”
“I don’t have time to meditate.”
I’m sorry – did you completely forget who you were talking to? My calendar is so jam-packed with appointments, tasks, reminders, project ideas, quotes… ok I’m making myself tired.
My point is that I get it. I know how busy we all are and how crazy and overstimulating our environments have become. That’s why I want to offer you a solution.
I know that you can’t always sit in front of a screen and watch one of my 4-minute workouts or meditations, so I’m giving you 5 simple relaxation techniques to bring peace, love, and harmony into your day.
5 Short Meditations That Will Change Your Life
1 – Next time you drive somewhere, sit in your parked car for 10 full breaths before going inside. Think “I am” as you inhale and “happy in this moment” as you exhale.
2 – Instead of singing along with the radio on your drive, say 10 nice things about yourself out loud, starting each item with “I am” – I am beautiful, I am strong, I am funny, I am creative… Start your list with a whisper and end it with a shout!
3 – Grab a pillow and set a timer for 4 minutes. Sit up nice and tall on your pillow and imagine your favorite vacation spot. Think of the smells, sounds, and sensations of everything in that spot.
4 – Close your eyes and hum in the shower. If your tone is high, slowly bring it down one note until your voice is as deep as it can get. If it’s low, make it higher and higher. Examine how each tone makes you feel. Find your favorite note and use that one to hum during your next meditation.
5 – Place your hand on your heart. Take 10 deep breaths. With each inhale, imagine someone you love. With each exhale, send them love straight from your heart. Can you feel the energy coming from your heart space? Awesome!
