Here’s a Sample of the “Mindfulness While Waiting In Line” Guided Meditation Script:

What Are You Waiting For?

Waiting is an unavoidable fact of life.

Often when we’re waiting—

in traffic, at the DMV, for our food to arrive—

we grow impatient or frustrated.

We focus entirely on getting to the front of the line and completing the task.

In these moments when you have nothing to do but wait, you have a perfect opportunity

to practice and encourage mindfulness.

Mindfulness While Waiting In Line, Mindfulness While Waiting In Line

Begin this practice whenever you are waiting during your day. Whether you’re physically waiting in line or waiting on hold on the telephone, use the experience of waiting as your cue to practice.

Pay attention to what it is you are waiting for. You are likely waiting for something specific.

Bring this to mind, recognizing the nature of the experience.

Check in to see if there is any impatience or frustration present with the waiting.
