When was the last time you took time to do absolutely nothing?
I just watched this TED talk by Andy Puddicombe and it reminded me that one of the most refreshing, healthy things I can do is to just sit and be present for 10 minutes.
Just 10 minutes a day.
It will help me to calm my mind, to relax and to destress. And it’s totally free.
But how many of us actually take the time to do this?
Watch the video–it will take less than 10 minutes–and think about it. Is this something that you can do for yourself?
I’m going to do it. 10 minutes a day. It’s a gift that I can give myself every day–for free.
ps. Thanks to my friend Alisa who treated me to a fab lunch at Revel and the conversation we had there that helped me think again about the value of being in the present.
UPDATE: 10-15 minutes of meditation a day is doing wonders for my mental and emotional health. Most days, it’s hard to quiet my mind but each time I do, even for just a minute, I feel better. Totally worth it. Hope you will try it!
