Meditation is a quieting of the mind, connecting to your breathe
and being open to receiving higher levels of peace, calm and mindfulness.
Being on the computer can be the hardest time to quiet the mind. The flashing words, the images, the continual links to click! Not to mention the continual stream of emails, Facebook news feeds and Twitter updates, oh my. So much continual stimuli can overwhelm our brains, spirits and energy levels to exhaustion. And unfortunately, it's become the new normal for daily life.
So here's a quick 5-minute fix to balance computer time and center yourself right now with ease and gentle focus.
Focus on these simple steps:
1. Close your eyes and put all mental things on a shelf.
Literally: Visual all of your thoughts, ideas and worries being gently placed on a beautiful shelf. Back up and let them be still for now.
2. With eyes closed, take three slow deep breathes.
Feel your rib cage expand fully, and then decompress fully.
3. Now focus on relaxing all parts of your body slowly. Start at the top of your head.
Take a deep breath in and relax ears. Exhale.
Take a deep breathe and relax your jaw. Exhale.
Continue with chin, neck, shoulders, working your way slowly down to toes.
4. After reaching your toes, bring awareness to your heart.
Put a hand on your heart and take three more deep breaths.
Feel your rib cage expand fully through your hand, heart and body. Exhale.
5. Slowly open eyes and come back into the room.
Stretch gently either while seated or standing up.
Observe what thoughts, ideas and worries are still on the shelf and which ones are fading away.
Continue with focused breathing for as long as possible.
Effective meditation changes internal energy and creates greater focus, peace and contentment. This quick tune-up is provided as a meditation technique while at the computer. (It may take practice to sit at the computer screen and not look at it.)
