Getting offline

Can we get offline more often?

 

Healing Tip

Get offline

 

We were not that surprised to hear that on Twitter the fifth most popular New Year’s Resolution last year was to get offline more often.

What is the quality of your concentration? We spend lots of time being stimulated by the many things in our life. I find that being online can really challenge the focus I have. I may go into Facebook with the intention of posting about a workshop, for example, and 30 minutes later I’ve had an interesting time reading about lots of stuff, but I haven’t actually written the post! Do you find the same?

Wouldn’t it be great if everyone who does decide to get offline regularly spent some of that time meditating. What a great benefit that would be to the world!

Meditation Tip

Before you sit to begin meditating try these simple routines. They will help you to relax and loosen some of the tension.
Remember to do them slowly and mindfully.

  • Gently stretch your arms up and then slowly down to the side several times.
  • Then slowly bend forward and down as far as you are comfortable. Straighten up and bend backwards.
  • Breathe slowly and deeply through your nostrils for 5 rounds of inhalation and exhalation.

Meditation Tip

Comfortable meditation

It’s important to be comfortable when you begin to meditate. Discomfort is a huge distraction for the mind.

For you, sitting comfortably might be on a cushion with your legs crossed. It might be on a chair or even on the floor with your back against a wall.

No matter which position you choose there are two important things to keep in mind.

The first is that your back should be straight – not ramrod or stiff but erect.

The second is that you are able to be comfortable for the period of time you’ve set yourself for meditating.

Meditation Tip

 

Meditating to music

 

Listening to music can be a very soothing form of meditation. Of course the music needs to be something tranquil with no lyrics. Many people use classical music, particularly that of the Baroque period. Some of the popular composers from that period are: JB Bach, Vivaldi, Telemann and Pachelbel.

If you try meditating to music remember to really focus on LISTENING.

This means bringing your mind back to the music each time you notice it wandering.
