Quick and Easy 5 Minute Meditations for the Busy Woman
Since I started working for myself I have been trying to be better about self care and peace of mind. When you are trying to build you own business/project/career from the ground up the list of things to-do can be extremely overwhelming. I’ve never been very much into meditation until I tried it.
The effects of meditation, at least for me, are subtle and even more pronounced once I get into a consistent groove of meditating daily. I feel more relaxed overall and my reactions to things aren’t so…colorful. 🙂
One of the biggest myths about meditation for me was that I needed to be in a perfect space, my legs crossed, with complete silence. This is not at all true.
My meditations happen randomly, sometimes early in the morning before a long work day, sometimes right before I get my children and other times before bed when my anxiety is on fleek.
I’m sharing 5 minutes meditations today because sometimes it feels like we can’t even take 5 minutes for ourselves–but the truth is–we can.
I’m giving you permission to take 5 minutes for yourself and meditate daily. Obviously if you have more time to meditate longer you should! I have a short attention span when it comes to mediation but I am hoping to get better and stay in longer as time goes by.
There are also plenty of apps that you can try–if you have an Apple Watch there is a “Breathe” app that is native to the watch that you can do anytime of day. It only takes a minute and it’s a great way to reset.
These are some of my favorites. If you have never tried mediation, you should. It is worth the 5 minutes. Take the time to reset and restart.
