Don’t worry – tame the hurry
I recently wrote about meditation on the go which means concentrating in your breathing for a brief while to calm your mind. Well, this is nearly the same thing but at least for me this works even better when I’m in a hurry.
As we know, hurry isn’t a given but rather a perpective or a feeling. A bus ride takes its time regardless whether you’re anxious or not to get where you’re going. So why worry? Tame the hurry by concentrating on how the soles of your feet feel to the ground as you go or when sitting down. Works best with some barefoot shoes (or five pound shoes from Top Shop which have virtually NO soles) on for you can actually feel the ground but feel free to be mindful in high heels as well!
Concentrating on the concrete feeling in your soles instantly shifts your focus from should be into now.
