Try this meditation when you are busy, on the go or need a quick emergency breathing session. Even one minute of deep breathing can change the course of your day.

Meditation is particularly helpful during a booze break, because it can help curb cravings due to the positive impact on areas of the brain that regulate self-control.

Don’t worry if your mind wanders — that’s perfectly normal. In fact it’s physically impossible to “empty” your mind. Rather, when you notice a thought, simply acknowledge it and then refocus on the breath.

I hope you enjoy this brief meditation.

One-Minute Meditation

Breathing in, I calm body and mind. Breathing out, I smile. Dwelling in the present moment I know this is the only moment.
