It would be great if we had a stop sign when we are racing around being too busy, or when our mind is racing around in circles!
We forget to enjoy the moment and those that are around us. We get overworked and the mind & body are stretched beyond their limits.
If you find it hard to stop and take a breather, use our phone to set a timer for a couple of times a day. Really you don’t have to do an hour long meditation, you don’t have the time for it! All you do is feel your feet on the floor, focus on your breathing and follow your breathing as you inhale and exhale, for three times only. Doesn’t take long and you have given yourself a mini break!
And yes I do know that you will ignore the timer a couple of times too, and that is just fine. Even if you manage to take a small step once today, or once this week, it is still a step in the right direction!
