Mini Meditations

I’m just guessing, but if you’re anything like me, your day-to-day can be quite stressful if you’re not careful. Managing stress is a HUGE part of being healthy. It’s amazing how many systems of the body are negatively affected by stress.

But what can we do about it in our busy day?

One of the best ways to combat stress is through mediation. Now that can be a hot topic for some, but I’m talking about simple kinds of relaxation meditations. Moments of calm throughout your day when you purposefully slow your breathing, your heart rate, and your overactive mind.

Here’s how you can do it:

Whenever you find yourself waiting – like at a traffic light, in a waiting room, or in the checkout line – instead of fretting impatiently, just tune your mind into your breathing, and simply listen to what’s going on around you. Don’t judge or try to understand, just hear, acknowledge and focus on breathing and listening.

You can also use this time to tune in with God and ask Him if there’s anything He’d like to say to you. Perhaps you’d like to use the “anchor phrase” from 1 Samuel 3:9 & 10 “Speak Lord, your servant is listening”.

Sure beats shouting at the kids, getting nasty with the cashier, or releasing that migraine that’s just waiting to happen.
