Quiet Spaces

Have you ever felt like you were being pulled in 50 different directions? Each kid is asking for your attention for something. Your spouse is needing a hand in the yard. You have to make dinner. You have friends texting you and social media is dragging you into its depths of Twitter feeds and IG pictures to like. You have a million and one things in your head and on your to do list that you just feel so overwhelmed that you are ready to scream and give up.



Recharge your mind with at least 10 minutes of quiet meditation every day. You can do an hour or more of meditation or it could just be turning off the radio while you drive, or somewhere in between.


And "quiet" doesn't have to mean silent. If you are like me, complete silence means the children are up to something. This can just be a time where you sit still and ignore the sounds around you.


If you still find it hard to shut out the world and your brain, find something calm to focus on. I will focus on my breathing (in for 4 seconds, hold for 2 seconds, out for 4 seconds, hold for 2 seconds) repeat until you feel you should stop.


Taking 10 minutes for meditation can help to reduce stress, pain, and anxiety, it helps to regulate blood pressure as well as helps those suffering insomnia. (https://www.mindbodygreen.com/0-8171/5-benefits-of-a-10minute-meditation-practice.html)


I challenge anyone willing to try 10 minutes of meditation and quiet per day to do so for 30 days and see the difference it will make in your life!
