How To Meditate In Less Than 30 Seconds!

How To Meditate In Less Than 30 Seconds!

I know you’re busy.


I totally get it.


I’m a mama to an almost 3 year old who is with me almost 24-7. I’m pregnant and running a business from home at the same time. But this is not a competition. It’s just me saying ‘I get it’.


If you’ve ever said I don’t have time to meditate, then I’m going to put this out there:


Do you have time to feel stressed out?


Do you have time to feel like cr*p?


Do you have time to go to the doctor and be told you’re suffering from chronic stress and anxiety that could lead to depression and that if you don’t do ‘something’ (they rarely tell you what to do about it!) then you are going to crash and burn?


I know how this feels. And you don’t have to get to depression or burn out to do something about how you feel right now.


Meditation can help.


Meditation is a powerful stress release tool.


And you don’t have to be flexible and sit cross-legged to meditate. You don’t even have to close your eyes!


But how do you find any time to meditate when your day is already crammed full?


Well here’s the thing. No matter how busy I think I am, there are always moments in the day when I’m waiting. And that’s where meditation comes in!


Have a think about your day…when do you find yourself waiting?


  • When you’re waiting for the hot water to come on in the shower?
  • While the microwave counts down?
  • While you’re stuck in traffic?
  • Waiting for public transport and you’re staring at your phone filling in time?
  • Waiting to cross the road?
  • Scrolling through your newsfeed on Facebook during your lunch break?
  • Waiting to pick up the kids from school?
  • While you breastfeed your baby?
  • Waiting to pay for the groceries?
  • Waiting for the doctor that is always running late even when you have booked an appointment?
  • Lying in bed waiting to fall asleep?

Even when your diary looks crazy, there are these moments…these moments of ‘waiting’…when you can meditate!


So give this a go in those moments when you find yourself waiting!


The Power Of 3 Soft Sighs


Take a deep breath in through your nose and then a long sigh out through your mouth…

(When you sigh, make sure you can hear the air coming out of your mouth)

Sigh like this three times…

And then notice how you feel…


That’s it! You just meditated!


Don’t be fooled by how simple that was. It IS simple. It’s the ‘doing it’ that will make the difference in how you feel.


So the next time you’re waiting for the hot water, or the kids, or lying in bed worrying about what tomorrow will bring…


Stop. And meditate…with The Power Of 3 Soft Sighs.
