Sometimes, what I want more than anything is some quiet time to think. The beautiful thing about meditation is that it doesn't require much. For me, just a few minutes here and there are enough.
Whenever I meditate, it's a process. At first, I think about whatever is currently on my mind. Then I think about how I can resolve it. I mentally plan when I will send those e-mails, make those phone calls, or attack (figuratively) my to-do list. There is peace of mind in knowing that what needs to be taken care of will be taken care of.
Next I reflect. I think about anything and everything. Is there something I forgot to take care of? Is there someone I've been ignoring that I should talk to? Whatever comes to mind gets worked though (or at least I try as much as possible to) by an internal dialogue with myself. I try to be as honest with myself as possible. Did I really try my best today? Why am I procrastinating? What can I do to make tomorrow better?
Sometimes taking some time for ourselves to mentally calm down during our daily lives is the most important thing to do.Follow @nourishnotes
