#FastFit // 5 Minute Meditation

#FastFit // 5 Minute Meditation

Meditation will help fix your mind in the present moment, instead of dwelling in the past or future.  In a highly technological and fast paced world, it's easy to get caught up in the noise around us, and lose sight of the inner voice that guides us in our decision making and keeps us focused on our priorities. A few minutes each day, set aside to focus and quiet your mind, is a great tool to reinstate some of that stillness.  You would be amazed at how quickly the stillness pervades into even the most stressful of situations. Here is a simple practice to get you started.
  • Find a quiet space, and a comfortable cross legged or lotus pose seat.  You may want to sit on a small pillow for low back comfort.
  • With a tall spine, place your hands in your lap and draw your head gently up and back.
  • Gently sway side to side like a pendulum until you settle into a still, centered position.
  • On each breath in, you count from one to ten.
  • Each time your mind wanders away from your breath or the counting, you begin again at "one."

When I first started using this meditation tool, I counted "one" over and over again for the entire session. That happened repeatedly. Until slowly, I learned to focus on only the breath. To quiet the voices and noise. If a thought arises, acknowledge it and let it be like a cloud that drifts by, ungraspable. Them begin again at one.   If you reach ten, then begin again at one. The beauty is in the simplicity. A regular practice can bring greater focus and awareness into your work, your day to day, your workouts or training, and help bring ease and quiet to the noise.
