Anyway. A quick post today, about a simple meditation. I might do a few posts on meditation, since it is definitely one of those things that can become a powerful tool in becoming more mindful and present. I'd say I'm a novice at meditation - and the only time I really meditate is during savasana in yoga. Although sometimes at the beginning or the end before savasana in yoga, we will sit quietly and meditate for a few minutes.
One mantra that I have noticed a few yoga teachers teaching us, is when you inhale repeat LET in your head, and on the exhale repeat GO. It is a simple, yet meaningful phrase that can bring you back to the present moment and literally let everything go ...
If you want to try the exercise - I'd suggest sitting in a comfortable spot when you wake up, and for the first few minutes practice some deep breathing, repeating this simple mantra.
