Quick Fix Meditation

Now, picture the ocean, with its waves rolling in and breaking at the shoreline, then rushing up the beach over the sand, then being swept back into the sea.

Hold this visualization in your mind’s eye for a few minutes as you watch the waves rush up onto the beach and retreat back to the ocean.. Now shift your focus to the waves offshore.

Keep seeing them reduce in size until you visualize a smooth surface of water.

Picture small ripples appearing and the sun as a soothing reflection off the water.

Hold this visual. Feel the sense of quiet and calm. Once you feel relaxed, bring yourself back to focus on your breathing. Breathe a few slow, deep breaths, exhaling just as slowly.

Open your eyes and return to the place that you’re resting, and then return your thoughts to the present issues.

Use this quick fix as often as you can during the day to relax and keep your thoughts on a positive track. Remember, by relaxing your mind your body will follow suit and you will have a much more successful and happy day.
