Meditate with Agapi
The greatest gift you can give yourself and your wellbeing is to take some time every day to meditate There’s a well-known quote: “Meditate for an hour every day unless you are too busy. In that case, meditate for two hours.” And we don’t need to devote hours to meditation to begin to see the benefits! Even a few minutes of conscious breathing can have a tremendous impact. The key is shifting our mindset away from “I’m too busy” or “I don’t have time” to a mindset that focuses on what we’ll gain from even just five minutes of meditation. That’s how we can escape the vicious cycle of feeling so stressed that we’re unable to take care of ourselves in fundamental ways, leaving us… so stressed. If your inner voice tells you there’s not enough time, you can reply, “if you have time to breathe, you have time to meditate.”
How do we do it? We begin to make meditation a habit. Find a pocket of time you might not have previously considered: the moment you wake up, while out on a walk, or even in the shower. Start small: five deep breaths in the morning and five deep breaths at night. Even one conscious breath alone can reset the brain and shift you into being more present with yourself. You can simply start by following your breath and picking up a word that energizes you like peace, calm, serenity, trust, love, etc.
