Enjoy an Attention Restoration Meditation at least every 90 minutes at work. Give your mind a self-compassion break so that you can resume work with renewed focus. Put aside the time needed to be full with this meditation and use earphones so that you can block out noise in your environment. After enjoying the meditation, give yourself a few moments to sit and simply “be.”
I thought I did this meditation already. I think this new iOS is messing things up.
After an hour and a half meditation as I made a protection necklace for my daughter(while listening to nature sounds) this is just what I needed to bring my mind back to only the sounds of the nature! The necklace is turning out beautiful also ;-)
The Source: an Attention Restoration Meditation
Reverence is a beautiful word to describe the gifts of nature. The soothing sounds of nature are always there if only we take the time to listen. Sometimes the sounds can also be silence.
I started my day with strong intentions & positivity. Then shame set in. I slowed down. I started avoiding the things I set out to do today. I started ignoring my body & mind. This mediation gave me the confidence I needed to keep going.
Still sounds nice to me...
I found this to be very relaxing!
Nature is cool
Nature sounds are the best. Really gets you out of that urban-officey headspace for a minute
Focusing on the tranquility of this meditation grounded and centered me and my mind.
My 'go to' meditation for a mental time out
I love this meditation for those times that I just need a mental escape - it lets my mind become calm and quiet during chaos.
I remembered being out in the garden and touching the flowers for comfort.
This particular meditation and the beautiful soundscape of bird song and water calmed me right to my core. So simple, so clearly part of our own nature. 🙏
Remember what it feels like
I learned that my mind has been capable of such quiet but at times when my life is very busy I often find myself in a meditative hurricane where I have some kind of stillness but my thoughts are still swirling around me. And it's at that moment where I have to try harder to calm the storm surrounding me so all that is left is quiet with the occasional leaf that floats by. 🍂
