Meditation. It relaxes you, grounds you, and centers you… if you have the time to do it. I really have no idea how normal, everyday people have time in their daily lives to do anything besides the bare minimum. It’s crazy how the older you get, the more you crave time to yourself, and how little you actually allot to doing exactly what you want to do.
Speaking from personal experience, my days are jam packed from the moment I open my eyes until I go to sleep with things to do. Getting even five minutes to myself alone with my thoughts is near impossible and usually only accomplished in the bathroom. That being said, where I have no “me time”, I constantly feel stressed about not having enough down time. Finally, I had a moment in my life where I snapped and realized, even just taking five minutes was more helpful than not. I began a simple morning regiment that has me feeling more alert, well rested and less anxious throughout the day without taking a huge chunk of time out of my already cramped schedule. I call it my Morning Minimalist Meditation and it’s done in three easy steps, which make all the difference in the long run.
