I, like many people, struggle to sit still with meditation. My mind wanders (damn monkey mind)! My hips start to hurt, I get bored, I get itchy and then I give up. I recently discovered meditation that involves rocking the body with the breath. It was a game changer for me. It helps me to focus on the movement and my breath and gives me less opportunity to start wandering. It also keeps my back and hips from locking up.
I thought I would share a short rocking meditation with you.
I woke up this morning with the words running through my head "Unplug and then plug back in". It wasn't from my IT guy, it was the answer to a client I spoke to yesterday.
We were talking about anxiety and stress. Right now we live in a world with a whole lot of chaos. We need a way to turn it off and remember to breathe. Then the answer came, "unplug and plug back in".
So I got up and I made a 5 minute meditation. You don't need anything fancy. You can sit right where you are and be guided through 5 minutes to unplug and plug back in.
