An Easy & Fun Meditation

I picked up this book (A Morning Cup of Meditation) a few months ago and have been enjoying the benefits of an easy and enjoyable meditation ever since.  All it takes is a quick read and you’re good to go.  With 10 associations you can use in your breathing, you’ll find relaxation, energy and a grounded sense of being.  I’ve used this simple technique while falling asleep, during turbulence on a plane, on short & long walks when my mind needs a break, and other circumstances where I needed a simple reminder to focus my thoughts into a healthy and productive place.

In a nutshell, “A Morning Cup of Meditation” teaches you to count your breaths and associate words/feelings with each breath.  Starting at 1, counting up to 10, and back to 1 again.

The book quickly explains the meaning behind each word, how you can put it into practice and it even has pictures!  (I like pictures.)

I took some time to meet with Radar (a.k.a. The Little Brown Side) and get his thoughts on the book.  Here’s our little interview:

[me]
How did you like the book?

[Radar]
Well, I don’t read per-se, but the colors are nice and my mom really liked it.

[me]
You know you’re talking about me in the third person, right?

[Radar]
Yes, but let’s act as if this is professional and you are not the one interviewing me, ok?

[me]
OK.

[Radar]
Do you like this book?

[me]
I thought I was interviewing you.

[Radar]
Just answer the question.

[me]
Yes I do.

[Radar]
Well, there you have it.  You seem much calmer when you try these things.  You definitely stress me out less.

[me]
Well that’s good.

[Radar]
Yes. Very.  I’m part Chihuahua you know.  We shake at anything so it’s nice when you’re calm.  I like you.  Can I lick your face now?

[me]
Yes, but I don’t know if that’s considered professional.

[Radar]
Oh, right.  I forgot.  Would you like my signature?  I’m famous, you know.

[me]
Yes, you are.  You’re top of my list.

    Love this post. Love Radar and love you! Why didn’t you teach me this meditation technique when you were visiting! I think I could use it. Guess I will have to go buy the book!
