10 Minutes To More CreativityWednesday, April 8th, 2020
Only 10 minutes to more creativity? That sounds doable, right? It is, and it’s as simple as sitting quietly and focusing on your breath.
For the past several years I have been recommending meditation to my private clients. It has been significant to most.
At our Creative Arts Business Summit, I would lead a guided meditation. For some of my clients, this was a powerful exercise.
Today in our times of stress with the coronavirus, meditation can have a profound effect on us.
I also have my own meditation practice that is part of my morning ritual. I was around meditation for a long time before I started to practice. My sister has taught mindfulness meditation for more than 15 years after many more years of a personal practice, and my husband has also had a long-time practice.
Despite their encouragement, I could not think of myself as someone who meditated. After all, I couldn’t possibly sit still that long. The first time I tried, I stopped and looked at the clock and barely two minutes had passed. And, I could not shake the long-held idea that meditation somehow was for hippies or new-age types.
I somehow got over that.
Read, I stopped self-sabotaging myself. And, I began a meditation practice. I have found that it has a positive impact on my life. I can see this in my everyday activities and in my own creativity.
Especially in today’s uncertain times, I find it grounding.
