The Power of Meditation
I’ve recently downloaded the app Calm, and have been listening to How to Meditate with Jeff Warren.
Meditation to Improve Concentration
Meditation isn’t new for me. I have attempted to practice it many times over the years. Today, I have decided to start again! This morning I listened to Jeff Warren speak about Home Base. Coming back to a Home Base to anchor me in the now, and become better at concentrating on whatever it is I am doing. People usually choose breathing – to focus on their breathing – to help bring them out of their mind, back to the now and help them concentrate on what they are doing.
I wasn’t sitting down while listening to the second session in his series of How to Meditate, I was emptying the dishwasher. I decided that was okay, because while I am doing stuff, is when my mind and negative thoughts can get a grip on me. While I emptied the dishwasher, I practiced bringing my attention back to my breath. Back to my Home Base… to concentrate on emptying the dishwasher… not focusing on my thoughts.
Just for today, I will do my work honestly as I concentrate, as best as I can, on the task at hand. I will bring myself back to Home Base, and as far away from my thoughts as possible.
