December is the perfect month to learn to meditate, or perhaps to reconnect with your meditation practice. Why December, you ask? Well, December is the month that most of us get caught up with the frazzled pace of getting stuff and going places and doing things. While there is some joy in that, it is temporary and can be depleting. It is a conditional type of happiness. There is a deeper, more sustainable type of happiness and joy that is available ALWAYS. One way to reconnect with this lasting, always available type of peace is the simple act of sitting quietly and connecting with your breath.
Here are some ideas:
- Look up in the sky (Ahhhh-mazing, right?)
- Find a comfortable seat (maybe it is in your car?). Close your eyes and take 5 deep breaths. Count them as you breath in, and as you breath out.
- Find a comfortable seat, close your eyes and listen to a short guided meditation (click below for a 4 minute guided meditation)
