Throughout life there will be times when we feel obligations and responsibilities pile up and become a heavy burden. Many of these responsibilities are actually necessary and are a crucial factor in determining our overall success. However, at the end of the day, they take a lot of time to accomplish. Consequently, leaving very little time for us to recover. Luckily, a short break can go a long way, especially if the short break consists of a delicious refreshing tea and also a short but powerful meditation. With today’s post, we will go over a few simple steps you can take to help overcome the hustle and bustle of your day.
Step 1: Find a Quiet Place
The very first step is to find a quiet place. You need to remove yourself from all the distractions that surround you. Somewhere, where you can hear your own breathing and where there are no electronics. During your session, make sure you are disconnected form the outer world to be fully committed to meditating. Remember, this short time is dedicated for you to relax, therefore, leave all your obligations and responsibilities out of your mind. If done properly, you will gain a peace of mind.
Step 2: Savor the Tea
During your meditating session, it is recommended to have tea prepared. Few teas, such as ours, are used during meditation due to their relaxing properties. As you take the first sip, feel every single sensation that it awakens in you. Take in the aroma, the taste, and let yourself enjoy the moment. At this instant, you should only be dwelling on the tea and its taste and aroma.
Step 3: Reflect on Your Experience
Once you are finished with your tea, take a few more minutes and reflect on the experience. That positive feeling that you get from the experience will help you overcome most of the friction that you come across throughout the day.
With these simple yet powerful steps, you are ready to meet the outside world with a more organized, relaxed and positive mindset.
