Hopeful Spirit: Meditation and Mental Breaks

Feeling unhappy? Overwhelmed? When was the last time you relaxed?

Don’t have time to relax?

I get it. You’re busy. Everyone’s counting on you.

But what if you escaped for a few seconds by closing your eyes and just letting yourself breathe deeply?

What if?

What if you locked yourself in your room for a moment while you fell on your knees for a quick prayer?

Or a fun YouTube DIY tutorial?

What if you spent five minutes playing Mario Kart?

Do you think you might feel differently?

There’s something magical about letting our minds go blank and rest. It can happen through meditation, when we lean on God instead of trying to push through on our own. Or it can even happen when we just take a mental break from adulting. Sometimes the mental rest comes from using a different part of our mind as we learn something creative.

In an effort to be more supportive and reach out, I’ve set up a new service. If you want help relaxing through trying something new and fun, please consider my Arts Subscription. You can learn more about it by clicking here or subscribe to it here.

But no matter how you do it, just do it. Sit back, for at least a few seconds. Mediate. Release. Go blank. Or get curious. See if music or another stress-less art activity helps you decompress.

Your mind’s been going and going and going. You’ve worked hard. You’ve had results. But maybe you’re hitting some burn out.

Do you need a recharge? Let’s see what happens though when you stop staying “on” all the time.

You might feel amazing after a break. You might feel relief if you spend some time away from your worries so you can catch a mental breather.

So escape to mother nature (or your bedroom). Lean on God. Allow your spirit a moment to feel some hope.
