Coaching for Creatives | 2-Minute Meditation

twominutemeditation

Almost every creative I work with wants to incorporate more meditation, prayer, stillness, whatever you want to call it, into their day. But it can be easy to put off when you think about all the effort that goes into taking time to be still. I myself have been putting off my own meditation practice because the amount of emails I could answer or the blog post I could write in the time I should be dedicating to meditation wins. So lately I’ve been practicing the 2-minute meditation.

Because two minutes is all it takes.

Taking two minutes to center and ground myself has been working wonders for my attitude and ability to focus. I find it especially helpful to take two minutes before I transition from one task to another. So before I go into a meeting, before I sit down to write, before I go pick up my baby from daycare … I simply take two minutes to be still.

Try this: Close your eyes. Feel your feet or sacrum firmly rooted to the earth. Quickly scan your body from the tips of your toes to the top of your head. Inhale to the count of four and exhale to the count of eight. Flood your body with light and as you exhale feel yourself relax a little more. You can do all of this in just minutes. Try incorporating this practice throughout your day over the next week.
