Mini Breathing Meditation for Anxiety and Stress Management.
How often are you focused on what needs to be done next instead of what you are doing right now?
We often create stress for ourselves by thinking into the future and hurrying to get there.
Find a pleasant chime or tone on a meditation or mindfulness app or extension like, the Insight Timer app, Headspace app or Bell of Mindfulness Chrome and Firefox extensions to download to your computer, phone and tablet.
Many of these apps let you choose how often the bell will chime and some even let you choose the sound of bell you like best.
- Whenever the bell chimes, stop what you are doing and, if possible, close your eyes and put your feet flat on the floor.
- Then, take 3 deep breaths, feeling the breath go all the way down into our body. Pay attention only to those breaths.
In just these couple of minutes, you can bring yourself back to the present moment, forgetting about your long to-do list.
If you feel comfortable with it, you can even blow the out breath out, like a big sigh or a whooshing sound to release the tension that might have built up since the last bell.

After releasing the breath, you rest in open awareness, which allows you to become aware of more subtle qualities.
