Zen Meditation

Let’s talk zen meditation. It’s quick..it’s easy to do…and it can be done literally anywhere. Zen meditation uses your breath and your senses. Taking the focus off your thoughts and placing awareness on the present moment, it can bring a surprising amount of stillness and peace. It can help in the everyday tasks, in feelings of overwhelm, quieting the mind or just to enjoy it for it’s own “zen-ness”. 

You can do this while you’re cooking dinner, in the shower, sitting outside, walking to your bus – the list is endless! It can be as long or as short as you like.

Focus your attention on your breathing..feel the air as it slowly enters and leaves the body. Relax your mind. Acknowledge the moment. Notice your thoughts come and go. Bring your attention back to your breath. What can you hear? What can you smell? What can you feel by touch? Breathe..
