I’ve written about how helpful meditation has been to keeping me grounded and sane, especially during stressful times when work and life are busy. For my irregular schedule, I find it easiest and most beneficial to do small meditations – sometimes only two minutes – throughout the day. My husband knows how much I find these breaks helpful and recently shared a website with my that is designed specifically for taking a calm, peaceful break. The website is aptly named calm.com. The site itself is simple and easy to use: choose a background (if you’d like to look at a peaceful image) and then choose a meditation method – guided or non-guided, and finally choose a length of the meditation.
Sometimes, I prefer to be away from my computer for my meditation break and there’s a free app you can install on your iPhone or Android device so you can take your meditations away from your work area.
I find I look forward to these breaks of calm during a chaotic day and the easier I make it on myself to take a break, the more I tend to do so. Do you have a meditation habit? Do you have a time that you set aside for meditation or do you break on an as-needed basis?
