No time to meditate? Quick tip on how to unwind…

Besides checking in with yourself periodically and making sure you are breathing right (deep, slow inhalations), there are a lot of quick little things you can do to relax and de-stress.

If you don’t have time for a bath with candles, bath salts, and incense, you can easily make an adjustments and create a similar effect in your 10-minute shower session! Instead of fluorescent lights, light a candle. Plug the shower and instill a few drops of essential oil, such as lavender, mint or eucalyptus into the tub. The scent will vaporize while you shower. Voila – you can now enjoy a spiritual aromatherapy shower session, with no extra time needed. Just take as long as you would a regular shower, and enjoy the experience. Trust me, making these little adjustments will make a big difference in how you feel during and after the shower. Try it out and see for yourself.

Shower happy!

  1. Meditation can be so difficult for beginners, but I like the idea from the mindfulness line of thought that there is no such thing as a bad meditation session, and that the very act of bringing ourselves back to focus each time we drift is the essence of meditation practice. That way, we don’t frustrate ourselves if we are having a particularly emotional or upset day and find it difficult to surrender to the breath.

    1. Yea, it is easy to lose focus when trying to meditate. Clearing your mind takes a lot of patience and practice. But turning the lights off and tuning out the rest of the world in the shower is a great first step!
