Meditation Station (part 3)

March 25, 2019

“You should sit in meditation for twenty minutes every day - unless you're too busy; then you should sit for an hour.” -Dr. Sukhraj Dhillon

Ahhhh, busyness. Busyness is the new black. Busyness is the new emotion. Busyness is the new coping mechanism. “How are you?” Busy.

Meditation Station (part 3) l Mukha Yoga

What is busy anyway? It’s a life with no space, it’s barely breathing as you move from one commitment to the next, it’s consumption, it’s overdoing as a means of getting. Meditation is the exact opposite, and in fact the antidote to busy.

Through a constant and consistent practice of meditation, we receive the effects of cumulative peace and pause. I consider meditation a pause button, best practiced at those natural “spaces between” throughout the day: between night and day, between work and home, between being alone and being with others. Meditation slows our thinking and reactions and has been proven to decrease symptoms of anxiety and depression.

I offer you this, from one “busy” person to another. Meditate however you can, whenever you can, as often as you can. Let it be anywhere from 3 minutes of closing your eyes and consciously breathing and being present to a 20 minute sit in front of an altar. The benefits of meditation are cumulative. Therefore, through constancy and consistency, shifts will happen. You will find yourself with an increased ability to pause and breathe before responding to people. You will experience more peace and ease in your daily life. Too busy to meditate? Give it three minutes.
