In class, we’ve been looking at how that spring break is like our beginning meditation. It’s a short break for your brain. There are many ways to meditate. We begin our classes simply thinking about our breath. It’s not always easy but over time, like anything we practice, gets better.
The great thing about meditation is that you can do it anytime, anywhere. Here are some of the other ideas we talked about to help get us back on track when our minds start to wander:
Use the phrase: Focus my eyes, focus my mind, focus my body.
Take a walk, do 10 push ups or 20 twenty jumping jacks, go for a 10 minute bike ride
Take a shower or bath
Get a drink of water or a healthy snack
Make sure you are getting enough sleep
