How To Reap The Benefits Of Meditation Without Meditating

FlowersOne of my favorite pieces of advice from Eckhart Tolle is to take a few conscious breaths throughout the day. Don’t have a regular meditation practice?  No problem! While meditation can be infinitely beneficial, purposely pausing to take a deep breath, whenever you remember to, can create space, clarity, and peace in your daily life.  Before you open the fridge, make a phone call, or turn on the car, take one or two deep breaths.  Over the course of time you might find your days going smoother, your moments of peace lasting longer, and your intuitive faculties growing stronger.  The only way to experience the benefits of taking a few conscious breaths throughout each day, is to test it out!  

This video created by my father, Peter Spero, provides a blissful moment of clarity and peace akin to a deep breath.  I hope it brings you as much joy and relaxation as it has brought me!

    Great idea! I don’t even realize that I’ve been holding my breath until I make a conscious effort to breathe deeply. It really helps to calm down, focus and relax. Thanks for the reminder!!

    And then the drone crashed, LOL! Just kidding, nice video, Petrov. I am mindful of my breathing when I am at work but hardly ever when I am at home. Thanks for the reminder, Katie.

    • Anytime! And it is so interesting to think about how, in your line of work, you would definitely be in tune with your breath, but then not as much when you’re home. Because I think for most people the opposite is the case, they don’t take a breath till they get home!
