Quieting the Mind in Just a Moment

We overthink things. We can get so used to life being complicated, that even when it’s not, we’ll figure out a way to make it so. Today, let’s break that habit with a simple practice.

Invite your mind to settle down a few times a day. At first, it may not accept your invitation, because quite frankly, it’s not used to being asked to go somewhere quiet. It mistakenly thinks chaos and confusion are it’s natural environments, and that’s okay for now. It is a work in progress.

As you notice moments when it would be good to slow down by taking deep breaths, move more slowly, or just be still – mind will become more accustomed to this new space that’s being created within your days. You will breathe deeply, drawing your breath and awareness in, and your mind will meet you there. You can slow your body down, moving at a more gentle pace, navigating the moment with grace, as your mind can meet you in a more peaceful moment. This is possible for you. Practice, and make it so.

A few seconds, a minute, a moment may be all you have; and it is all you need.
