Meditation is a proven technique for leading a life with intention and purpose.
These 4 meditations will help focus your attention so you can enjoy more peace, happiness and success.
Meditating For Slowing Down.
Where's your most peaceful setting?
- You can create a serene meditation space wherever you live. Pick a corner in your bedroom or living room. Clear away clutter and put down a cushion or chair. Light a candle or burn incense.
Relax your entire body.
- Take deep breaths. Scan your body from head to foot. Sit up straight. Lower your shoulders and loosen any tension spots. Close your eyes or hold them slightly open.
Silence your mind.
- Observe your thoughts without pursuing them. Gradually turn your attention to your breath. Count your breaths if it helps you settle down.
How can you simplify your schedule?
- Bring your new sense of ease into your daily routine. Pare down your to do list. Give your full attention to one activity at a time.
Meditating For Setting Specific Goals.
What does a meaningful life mean to you?
- Think about what achievements bring you the greatest satisfaction.
What are the priority areas you want to target?
- Identify what you feel most passionate about. You may want to spend more time with your family or advance your career. Maybe you want to go back to school or take up a new hobby.
Where do you want to go?
- Visualize it. Picture what you want your life to be like in a year or five years from now. Start setting short term goals that will make your new path a reality.
How flexible are you?
- Life is full of surprises. Be prepared for obstacles and detours. View them as opportunities for learning and growth. Learn how to be more flexible.
Meditating For Repetition.
Do you understand the value of repetition?
- Progress usually requires persistence. Make a commitment to being diligent and consistent. Look forward to how good you'll feel when the behaviors you desire become automatic.
What great new habits do you want to adopt?
- Form tendencies that are good for you. If you've been watching television to relax after work, come up with a list of alternatives like taking a walk or playing ball with your kids.
What's your action plan?
- Figure out how to implement your resolutions. Sometimes it helps to take it one day at a time and give yourself rewards to reinforce your motivation. Writing out your plans will clarify them in your mind. You can also post your resolutions somewhere as a reminder to stick to them.
Meditating For Evaluation.
How much progress have you achieved?
- Once you start living more deliberately, keep track of your results. Use your meditation time to gauge how things are going and where you want to improve.
What do you see when you reflect on your daily activities?
- Look at the situations where you succeed in becoming more deliberate and the times when you falter. Try to find the triggers that help to keep you on course.
Do you listen to what other people say?
- Other people can give us valuable feedback and insights into our own conduct. Use praise, criticism and reactions from others as resources to help you develop.
What are your specific resolutions?
- Refine them. Becoming more deliberate is a lifelong process. Schedule ongoing reviews to make mid-course corrections and to stay up to date with your changing needs.
Discovering your hidden talents can open up new dimensions and opportunities in your life as well as bring you a sense of fulfillment that you never realized was possible just a short time ago.
