Do you find it tough to slow down, put your life on pause for a few moments and breathe deeply? If so, you are certainly not alone! Most of us have very busy lives where there often doesn’t seem to be enough time in the day. We are stimulated by so much technology and can feel caught in a hamster wheel, rushing from one event to the next. It can be hard to remember to connect to our inner selves when we are so caught up in what’s going on “out there”.
Deciding to take 10 minutes out of your day to retreat in quiet solitude may be the most important 10 minutes of the day for you. The practice of meditation may profoundly influence the quality of your experience of life.
If you find it hard to meditate in silence, a guided meditation may be the right place to start. I often find I’m more productive, more clear, more balanced, and feeling so much better when I start or finish the day meditating. And sometimes when life gets a bit crazy, taking a meditative time out in the middle of the day (even if it’s the last thing I think I have time for) is absolutely the thing I need to do most! I know that the quality of energy I live after meditating is more than worth the brief time out.
Here is a guided meditation that I’ve created for you (under 10 mins!). I hope you enjoy! Please let me know what you think in the Comments section on YouTube. Thanks for listening!
More guided meditations (on a variety of topics) are coming soon. Please subscribe to my YouTube channel if you would like to be notified when they are hatched.
Happy meditating, fellow meditators!
