You’re a hard working individual! Give yourself a break and check out this cool website..
It’s pretty simple, you just do nothing for two minutes. It’s easy and relaxing! So go ahead and let your worries slip away….
I was talking to a tibetan lama and he said, we westerns should take 5 minutes every 2 hours to be really mindfull of what were doing at that moment, noticing how you feel, what you think but don’t lose concentration on what you are doing. Do that for 2 weeks and then slowly increase the time and you will feel much better during the day.
Haha my comment was meant for the science article about researching anti-matter for the first time; I don’t know why it was posted here. I did it and it felt incredible, very meditative. Usually when I do stuff like that my vision changes in very interesting ways. Perspective starts to change and my depth perception kind of becomes malleable.
I took a mindfulness meditation class at one point, very difficult, but almost impossible when the other students couldn’t take it seriously. I really want to try it again now. I’m not sure how long passed -after- the 2 minutes… But I know I caught my thoughts straying and had to go back to focusing on my breathing a lot. Practice is needed.
Thanks for sharing! I found this website while “stumbling” a few months ago—needless to say, it caught me by surprise, who knew 2 minutes lasted so long! haha. Since then I’ve set it as my homepage so whenever I open my browser I force myself to relax for a little bit.
