Dorm Room Workout: One-Moment Meditation
I know that this series is called Dorm Room Workout. But sometimes, when you’re tired, stressed, sick or just feeling crappy, a workout is not what your body needs. I know, you never thought you would hear me say that. But it’s true! Sometimes your body needs your help to repair and restore, not to beat it up more.
But by telling you to skip the occasional workout, I don’t mean that you should ignore your body! Instead, I wanted to share a technique I just discovered. It’s called One-Moment Meditation, and it comes from a book called (drumroll please) One-Moment Meditation! The idea behind this technique is that it’s a short, simple meditation. And the best part? Once you’ve had some practice, you can do it anywhere. So it’s perfect for those moments when you wish you could restart your brain like a computer.
This video takes you through the basics of the One-Moment Meditation technique. I tried it and loved it. It made me feel relaxed, energized and happy. What are you waiting for? Give it a shot!
