Mindfulness Technique – Meditation

“If you just sit and observe, you will see how restless your mind is. If you try to calm it, it only makes it worse, but over time it does calm, and when it does, there’s room to hear more subtle things—that’s when your intuition starts to blossom and you start to see things more clearly. Your mind just slows down, and you see a tremendous expanse in the moment. You see so much more than you could see before.” – Steve Jobs

“It feels good. Kinda like when you have to shut your computer down, sometimes when it goes crazy, you just shut it down and when you turn it on, it’s OK again. That’s what meditation is to me.” – Ellen Degeneres

“Meditating helps a lot for me personally with taking a lot of deep breaths, closing my eyes and just centering myself and listening to my inner self… That definitely is something that keeps me sane in the bubble.” – Lebron James

Today, we’re diving into the wonderful world of mindfulness with a focus on meditation. This powerful technique can be a game-changer in managing stress, enhancing focus, and improving memory. Let’s start by listening to what Amy has to say about mindfulness!

Meditation

  • Find a quiet spot where you can sit comfortably or lie down.
  • Pop in those earbuds and listen to the Guided Meditation we’ve got for you. It’s totally normal to zone out a bit during the 10 minutes, so if you drift off, just gently bring your focus back to the meditation.

Reflection

  • You can jot down your thoughts or record a voice memo – whatever floats your boat.
  • Share your reflection with us on the path. Use this prompt to guide your thoughts:Did you meditate on something specific? Explain your meditation experience using words. Describe how it felt, what parts of the meditation clicked with you, and how it vibes with your passion project or interests.

*Don’t forget to check back in and hear what others in your cohort have to say and responding to at least two posts!
