HECTIC DAYS?

Lost ConfidenceDays get hectic, some more than others. I’ve tried to analyze the business, but nothing seems sane. We pull up the calendar or schedule on the computer, and then double-check the I-phone. Every minute taken up with some chore, activity — YOU NAME YOURS.

Sure, there are a lot of things we can’t ignore like feeding the family, getting groceries, sending the kids to school, and if you work outside the home, another chunk of time. If both hubby and wife are employed, the chunk gets bigger.

Then, there is the time to schedule for kids’ activities, meetings, writing and meeting deadlines. Hey, what about the gym for exercise and

STOP!

You need to get centered, calm, and clarify yourself. Wouldn’t you like to improve your creativity, concentration and connection to others?

MEDITATION!

I hear your replies loud and clear – “I do not have time for this. I’m too busy.” No, you are not going to sit cross-legged and go into a trance with “HMMMMM or AHHHHH.” Start out slow. When you wake up, do not jump out of bed. Instead, take a minute or two for some deep breaths from your lower abs to your chest. Feel the breath creeping up and filling your lungs, and then a deep exhale as the breath returns to your abs. Practice. Practice. During the day while driving, working or wherever the day takes you. In just this little bit of time, you become aware of a clear mind and get to know your body. Make this your daily silent time without anyone knowing what you are doing. Your private breathing time. Soon, you will find yourself more cool, calm, and collected in everything you do,

AND!

Do not be surprised when you increase this time from one or two minutes upward. A silent mind is the rewards you gain along with no clutter in your thoughts.  Your daily activities seem less hectic and your enjoyment of life fuller.

Inhale, exhale, inhale exhale and breathe deeper and enjoy with every breath you take.

Listen to YOUR body.
