One Minute Calming Meditation
This technique is what started me on my meditation journey. My counselor gave me the homework of trying this exact exercise.
Step 1: Breathe deeply into your stomach. And again.
Step 2: Imagine calm as a color. What color would it be?
Step 3: Imagine your stress or overwhelming, as a color. What color is that?
Step 4: Set a timer for one minute.
Step 5: Now simply BREATHE IN the COLOR you imagined for CALM, and BREATHE OUT the COLOR that represents your stress and OVERWHELM.
Step 6: Repeat this. taking deep, super-slow breaths for one whole minute.
Step 7: When the timer goes off, slowly open your eyes and return to your day.
