Silence the Craziness

Posted by & filed under Ideas, TED, Wellness.

Many college students feel the same way I do right now: overworked, overwhelmed and anxious about tomorrow. We let all of our responsibilities overwhelm us, impeding the completion of any. What we need is some down time, away from it all, a chance for our brain to re energize and refocus. Take a peek at this short video, and see how 10 mindful minutes can change our day.

    When using my phone to rate, my thumbs are too fat to hit the right stars. Please change this to 5 stars!!!!! As a professor of Teacher Education, I encourage my future teachers to use mindfulness as a discipline tool.

    Great commercial for meditation ! This left me wanting to know more about how to be in the present!

      I just decided on this topic because it was me at the time…. way too overloaded and seriously sick to boot(plus my wife is a counselor). However it just really hit me that many of my students were in the same boat like I was, some perpetually. I have always had a private place where i go to block out everything and I hope others can develop the skills.

    I love the ‘simply doing nothing’…I’ve always called it my ‘not be’ time- I don’t have to be anything for anybody during the ‘not be, sit in my comfy chair, stare at nothing’ meditation time. Better and more energizing than the 10 minute power nap.
