Create Space Meditation
CYP Weekly Plan: A Little, Often • 6m 17s
It’s often when we feel like we don’t have time to meditate or rest that we need that space the most. When you’re busy, things tend to blur together — as if there’s no space between thoughts — and it’s hard to be fully present and effective with what you’re doing.
Use this practice to slow things down in your head and put more space between each of your thoughts. You’ll activate your breathing to support your mental state and feel how your body responds, creating more space for balance so that you can more easefully manage and transition through the events of your day.
