Mindful Mondays: A Simple Meditation

Hello :) First up, I have been in Melbourne for the past few days, hence this post is a day late. I was going to quickly write one up last night when I arrived back in Sydney - but I find blogging/writing to be one of those things I don't like to rush ... I'll partially write a post, let it 'marinate' for the next few days and then come back to it, to finish it with a fresh perspective. Does anyone else do this? 

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.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on meditation - is it something you wake up early and commit to? This week I am going to try this simple meditation mantra. Maybe you can join me too. I'd love to hear how you go ... I'll let you know how I go next week.

  1. That's an awesome way to meditate... breathing in let and out go...
    i think i'll incorporate that in my next meditation practice?
    In saying so, have you heard of oprah and deepk's free 21 day meditation? :)

    1. I have heard of it! I should definitely look into it, thanks for the reminder :)

  2. Definitely something I should do more of, but in this busy world, it's hard to just stop, and yep, let go :)
