Three Minute Breathing Space

I’m too busy to meditate!  I don’t have time to sit on a cushion in the morning!  Or in the evening!

OK, we’re all too busy and though we desperately need to stop, slow down, tune in, and allow comfort and ease to return to our bodies and minds, we just don’t have the space in our schedule to do so.  It’s not easy out there, and some days are less easy than others.

To help you find a way to have a little bit of structured mindfulness practice I’ve recorded a 3-minute Breathing Space meditation, that ironically is 4 minutes long!  The first minute is a bit of “the basics” (e.g. basic posture, reminder to form the intention to pay attention without judgment), but the final 3 minutes are very simple: tune in to the body, tune in to the breath, then watch whatever is arising in body/mind with equanimity.  This first recording is in the m4a format used by Apple computers:

This second recording is in the mp3 format:

 

So give yourself a break!  You’ve been working so hard today, and you deserve to take at least 3 minutes off to allow your body/mind to rest.

Peace,

Jim
