Meditate on the go? Absolutely!
You don’t necessarily have to stand still or in silence to meditate… of course, that’s an important part of the practice, but in my experience the WOW moments happen while you are moving that body!⁣
.⁣
It’s similar to when you learn to sing: often times you will be asked to stand still so you can notice some body mechanics, but this ends up creating rigidity and tension that are not only useless but can also be harmful.
.⁣
Your body knows what to do, it is only necessary to remember it on a mental level and it is therefore more about removing layers of useless data and integrating the ones you already have (your body is very wise!) rather than adding others.
Let’s try this very simple practice which will come in handy in every moment of your day: pay attention to how you breathe.
Put a reminder on the phone if you want, something to remind you during the day to bring attention to how you are breathing. Breath is already movement!
.⁣
Meanwhile, are you breathing as you read this post?
Breath is the only body mechanism both voluntary and involuntary, therefore (fortunately) we keep breathing whether we realize it or not; our body is wiser than our mind (and anxieties that often cause apnea).⁣
.⁣
So the breathing, just like life, happens: but you can decide whether to be aware of it or not. ⁣

How does your breath move? It is fluid, it is rigid, it satisfies you or you need more air? ⁣
