Two Minute Mindful Breathing Meditation
When it comes to caring for our bodies and minds, we usually have the best of intentions. We plan on exercising more, eating better, going to bed earlier, and working to let go of negative emotions such as anxiety, fear, or anger.
Unfortunately, our good intentions don’t always translate to tangible change in our lives. For instance, many people want to integrate mindfulness practices and meditation into their routine, but find it difficult to do. It’s understandable, of course. When you have a packed schedule and a long list of responsibilities, taking the time to practice mindfulness meditation isn’t an easy thing to do. Or is it?
Mindfulness Meditation Here and Now
In fact, integrating mindfulness exercises into your existing world doesn’t have to be cumbersome, difficult, or time consuming. There doesn’t need to be any sort of struggle. You can begin to live a more mindful, peaceful, and serene life right here and now.
Why wait another minute to be present in your life? Instead of waiting or procrastinating, simply try this 2 minute mindful breathing meditation with Mindfulness Exercises founder Sean Fargo.
Two Minute Meditation
In this meditation, you’ll begin by finding a comfortable position to sit in. If you’d like to close your eyes, that’s perfectly fine. This can be helpful for eliminating distractions.
Next, you’ll reach out with your awareness into your body to check for places of tension or discomfort. We often carry tension around us without realizing it. You may need to soften your shoulders a bit, relax your jaw, or simply allow yourself to sink into your chair, cushion, or mat.
Once you’ve begun to soften and relax your muscles, you’ll bring your attention to the area where your body makes contact with the chair, cushion, or floor. You’ll focus on what it feels like to experience the force of gravity pulling you downward, and you’ll follow that feeling as you begin to ground your energy down through your body and into the earth. Then, the mindfulness breathing meditation will begin. Enjoy, and feel free to share with friends.
