In all the busyness of your life, rushing around to get everything done, don’t forget to take some time for yourself. Most people think they can’t take on one more task, but try doing something that will make you feel better, allow you to concentrate more and make better use of your time: Be still.
Try to meditate for 10 minutes every day. Meditating causes you to breathe consciously, which can help to relieve pain, depression and anxiety. Set a timer for 10 minutes and sit quietly, focusing on your breathing. Some people like to listen to music or nature sounds while they meditate. If you need help getting started, there are CDs and DVDs available. Check your library before you commit to buying anything and choose one that has a variety of lengths so you can meditate for a shorter or longer period.
You can accomplish the same feeling of relaxation and rejuvenation by practicing yoga or by spending time outside in a garden or by the ocean. Although it may seem like you are adding one more thing to an already-busy schedule, stilling your thoughts for a short period can actually help you get more out of your day.
