“The 5-Minute Meditations series was created to help us fit in time for meditation, relaxation, and looking inward – even when we’re busy. You guessed it, meditations are usually 5 minutes or less, meaning only .04% of your day. The 5-Minute Meditations series is a great introduction to meditation for beginners, and a helpful resource for more experienced practitioners.”
This next meditation is a brief version of a body scan. As a current MBSR student myself, I’m currently doing the recommended hour long body scan daily.
Yep, that’s right. 1 whole hour of scanning the body. Noticing my big toe…the space between the toes..etc.. WHEW! I’m REALLY getting to know my body! Anyway, here’s a brief, 5 minute version for you to try, which may be a more feasibly time-frame.
Before You Begin
You may wish to practice this in the morning, on your lunch break, or after a long day to de-stress. Before starting, find a comfortable seated position or even feel free to lie down – find the position that will be most comfortable and peaceful for your practice today.
And remember: anything that happens in this meditation is perfect. Thank yourself for taking this time for you.
