I have been very overwhelmed lately. In my time I try to accomplish as much as possible, though some days I really don't feel like it. In a world where everything is so fast paced, it gets scary as time passes on by and you are stuck there wondering how you can ever slow it down. Have you realized that when you are faced with so many tasks you can not buy enough time, but if you are forced to sit through a class, watch an advertizement, or anything else like that, you suddenly want time to move forward. In the end you realize, wait...I didn't have any time for myself, whether time moved fast or slow.
Just for kicks I found a meditation app, and found at least five minutes to do this. I sat down criss-cross applesauce on the floor, let the heat from the sun shining through the window hit my face, and I closed my eyes. I played the recording on the meditation app, and it was like a big sigh of relief. This was my time. All of thoughts that I constantly worry over were pushed aside. I wanted to cry at how eye-opening this was. I found time!
It gets exhausting always having to do something. Just five minutes of doing nothing, gave me some time back. It re-centered me and my thoughts without having me feel completely drained.
In class I found a woman who has the most soothing voice. I stated that she should read for audio books or meditation apps. Ironically she does meditate. I think meditation is highly underrated and I might give it another go. It's an adjustment, but I say that everyone should at least try it, as it is an easier way to release the negativity we build up inside. It pauses the stress. It makes us think afterwards. This period of self reflection and quiet is needed for everyone. Consider it like a small five minute get-away but for your brain.
