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 Breathing Space meditation can be used in moments of stress to quickly reground yourself to this present moment. The idea being that although the stress may not go away, by stepping away ourselves for a little ‘breathing space’, we can return with some clarity, perspective and regulated emotion – even if only a little.
Before You Begin the Meditation
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.
