Re-energize Yourself in Only 20 Minutes

This morning I had one of those ugly, noisy, crying, destabilizing mornings with my kids. My 3yrs old is just finishing a nasty cold and my 18 month is entering the terrible twos. By the time I got to work I was exhausted. As luck would have it I stumbled across this great article from Psychology Today on how to re-energize yourself in only 20 minutes. Here are the top 3 suggestions from Dr. Barbara Markway on how to recharge in the fastest time:

“1. The first aspect of meditation is learning to stabilize your attention, and the way it's usually done is by focusing on the breath.

2. You take a few deep breaths, and then you just let your breathing settle at its natural pace. Do this for 20 minutes.

3. You can't fail at meditating! The Magic Moment is that moment when your attention naturally wanders. It's in that very moment when you have a choice to act differently. Do you criticize yourself for this lapse in attention? Or do you simply say, "Oh, my mind wandered. Let's go back to the breath now. These magic moment is the ability to start over."
