Three Mini-Meditations For Busy Moms
“Meditation is a silent heart, a peaceful mind which can make life more lovable, more livable.”
Do you want to meditate and know you would benefit from a regular practice – but you just can’t find the time? Sometimes no matter how hard we try the demands and responsibilities of this modern life get in the way of our best intentions. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t soothe your nerves and return to a place of calm even in your busiest days. Here are three mini meditations from 1-3 minutes that you can squeeze into your day and restore that feeling of peace. All you need is a quiet space where you can safely close your eyes. Use your phone timer and begin!
Square Breathing (one minute)
Square breathing is an easy way to bring a little peace into your day. Close your eyes and visualize a square. Breathe in for a count of four breaths (or whatever feels comfortable to you) as you imagine across the top of the square. Hold your breath in your lungs for the same count as you go down the right side of the square. Exhale for your count as you visualize going across the bottom of the square. And hold the breath out of your lungs and count as you go back up the left side.
Repeat as time allows.
Be the Calm Meditation (two minutes)
Turn inwards by closing your eyes and imagine a version of yourself
that feels calm, peaceful and focused. Bring to mind what you might be seeing, hearing or experiencing that shows you are more calm, peaceful and focused. If you aren’t feeling calmer or peaceful ask your unconscious mind to reveal how you might do this. Can you incorporate this in your day or week ahead? When your ready open your eyes.
Gratitude Meditation (three minutes)
Gently close your eyes and bring your awareness to your breath. Inhaling and exhaling through your nose feel yourself relax.
Now think of something or someone that you are your grateful for.
Visualize this person or thing in your mind and let yourself fully experience everything about this person or thing. Using all your senses – what does he or she look like? What do they sound like? Can you recall their smell? The way they feel?
Let yourself soak in all of these sensations. Think of one thing about this person or thing that you are grateful for.
Let your heart fill with love and peace as you soak in the gratitude for this person or thing. When you’re ready to open your eyes.
