When is the last time you sat: quietly. Doing nothing but sitting: quietly?
Usually I’m sitting: looking at my phone. Recently I heard this comment made in jest: “You know whose face I look at the most often? My iPhone’s.” But I don’t think it was a joke. I think it was true.
Today, your challenge is simple: sit quietly for 7 minutes.
I am not that good at this. I usually have a million things I’d like to be doing, so I sit quietly only to lament the fact that I’m not doing those other million things.
That is exactly why I need a routine of presence and sitting quietly. With myself. Without my phone. Without my email or my books or my distractions.
I’ve learned through a deliberate practice of breathing techniques, of meditation and mindful movement that there is a depth and richness within a practice of sitting quietly.
Here’s your moment to sit quietly: try this Guided Meditation that brings awareness to the Here and the Now of this quiet, present moment.
