If you’re in the business world, at home with the family or on a date there is always a minute to sit, relax and just breathe.
For years, I struggled and learned how to live with panic disorder. Having this disorder sometimes made it very difficult to be in meetings or just focus on any one topic of discussion. In order to make it through those rough patches I would find ways to have a moment for myself to relax my mind, rest my anxiety and get focused.
This video gives some great suggestions on how and where to grab that one minute meditation and here are some of my favorite meditation hangouts:
- The ultimate place to grab a minute… is in the bathroom. The best thing about meditation in the bathroom is that no matter where you go or what the situation is, there is always a bathroom.
- Before a meeting I like to arrive a few minutes early to the location, sit where the meeting is being held and just breathe.
- In your car- not while driving, but either before you leave or when you arrive at a location. This is a great way to prepare your mind to leave behind what your day has been like and let you go comfortably and peacefully into where your day is heading.
Just taking that one minute affects the way you feel, affects the way you communicate and it is also a way to show yourself that you care about you.
