We get it, finding time in your busy day to meditate is NOT the easiest thing to do. That’s why we’re here to make it a little easier, with our Mini-Meditations! Great for on-the-go, so feel free to try these during commercial breaks, at the office, when you wake up, or right before bed.
Some benefits of mini-meditations are:

Become more alert, receptive and engage in clearer communication
Increase your intuition and daily problem solving abilities
Feel relaxed and happy
…and much more!

3 MINI-MEDITATIONS FOR THE PERSON ON THE GO.
Stop, breathe in through your nose and out slowly through your mouth (5 counts in; 5 counts hold; 5 counts exhale)
Focus only on your breathing and repeat 1- 5 times
Feel grateful and smile
Do this first thing in the morning and at bedtime and, most importantly, several times throughout the day
FEEL. Beginner +1
Rest your attention on different parts of your body, starting with the top of your head and moving toward your toes
Focus your attention on each section of your body and consciously relax that part of you
In 1 minute you should be able to do your scalp, eyes, cheeks, mouth, jaw, neck, shoulders, chest, arms, belly and legs
MATCH. Beginner + 1
Take a comfortable breath in and count how long it takes you to do so, most people reach a count of 3, 4 or 5.
The number isn’t important, so long as it is comfortable for you.
Whatever number you reached on your inhale, match that number on your exhale.
Repeat for one minute, setting a timer so you can focus on the exercise. Increase the minutes and you want to increase the benefits.
