With this guided 4-minute meditation by Tara Brach, you can begin incorporating mindfulness into your life right here and now. Practicing mindfulness doesn’t need to be time-consuming.
Have you ever wanted to live a more mindful, present, and peaceful life? That’s a question that virtually all of us would respond affirmatively to. However, the thought of trying to shift our habits and patterns can be overwhelming — it can even lead to greater anxiety and stress.
People often think of developing a meditation practice the same way that they would conceive of entering into a new exercise routine or dramatically changing the way that they eat. By this, we mean to say that it’s easy to conflate something like meditation with the kinds of big, scary changes that can be uncomfortable and difficult to stick to.
You’re probably tried introducing significant changes into your life in the past, but found yourself unable to stick to them. A good example of this is deciding that you’ll begin exercising five days per week, starting now. After a couple of weeks, your initial drive starts to fall away, and it’s easy to create excuses for why you can’t stick to your ambitious plan. And to be fair, carving an hour or more out of your day without exception can indeed be a difficult thing to do.
Fortunately, mindfulness meditation doesn’t need to follow this same pattern. In fact, there’s no reason that you can’t incorporate meditation into your daily routine — no matter how busy you are. That’s because meditation doesn’t need to be time-consuming or complicated in order to be effective.
To this end, we’re offering this free 4 minute meditation with Tara Brach. As you’ll see once you begin, it’s possible to achieve some of the enormous benefits of meditation and mindfulness without having to worry about setting aside hours and hours per week. Simply follow along, breathe, and enjoy the immediate results.
