Avoid Burnout: A short stressbuster

September 30, 2010

During your busy day it can be really difficult to find time to quiet your mind.  A meditation session can be downright impossible to fit in.    Here is a short little meditation activity I found that anyone can use no matter how busy the day.

This comes from a Prevention article by Sarah Mahoney.

” Sit upright, focus on your breath, and pay attention to a physical sensation, such as the feel of air in your nostrils. When your mind wanders, notice the disruption, then return your attention to that simple sensation. Jha herself now meditates 5 to 10 minutes at a time, several times a day.” – Amishi Jha, PhD, an associate professor of psychology at the University of Pennsylvania

Give it a try.   This professor says that she has encountered Marines who do this even while deployed in a war zone. If they can do it, you can too.
