If we talk about meditation, most people think of it as a boring activity in which you have to sit still. However, meditation can be performed in a variety of different ways, perhaps more than you think. In fact, it can be done when you’re doing daily activities too, so let’s get started!
1. After waking up
Start each new day by meditating. Choose an alarm sound that doesn’t attack your hearing too much. Instead, choose one that has a soft melody to slowly wake you up from dreamland. After that, spend two minutes slowly breathing in and out while using your senses to be as aware of your surroundings as possible. Continue with your daily routine after the two-minute mediation is completed.
2. While taking a shower
Feel the water falling on your body and focus your hearing on the sound of water splashing against your body.
3. While dressing
Pay attention to what you are doing. Inhale the smell of your clothes. Feel the clothes slowly slipping onto your body and focus on the fact that you are living in the present moment.
4. While eating
Paying attention while eating makes you taste food better. Focus on what you’re doing such as smelling the food and tasting the food.
5. While walking upstairs
Focus on walking upstairs by counting the steps or being aware of the movement of your muscles, which can help you feel less tired.
6. While driving
Meditating while driving is really crucial because driving is a task that requires the utmost focus and awareness. Focus on the road ahead of you and check the wing mirrors. Don’t do anything else or look away from the road, because it might break your focus.
7. While exercising
It is really easy to mediate while exercising. Just focus on your breathing. Breathe in and out evenly. Doing this not only helps improve your meditation skill, but it also helps you feel less tired.
8. Before sleeping
If you are someone who has trouble falling asleep, then you should meditate when you go to bed. To do so, don’t use your phone before going to bed. Close your eyes and slowly breathe in and out. Relax your tired muscles and fall asleep. Meditating before sleeping can help you feel fresh when you wake up the next day.
Meditation helps train your body to function in a more organized way. It also helps you to feel relaxed and ready to start a new day, working and living happily and efficiently, as well as making your mind feel at ease!
