Gift of 5 Minutes of Meditation in a World Driven by Technology
The blessing and curse of technology
Technology is an amazing thing, especially during the pandemic. Through video conferencing we can connect with others outside of our families. Children have gone back to school in virtual classrooms. Businesses that never conducted business online before are now online all day, every day.
Social media feeds keep us updated on what’s happening with our friends. We get instant updates on happenings from the other side of the world. Facts that used to live in libraries are now available with a simple online search. There’s a flood of information behind every click of our mouse or tap on our smartphone. It’s amazing, powerful, and, at times, utterly overwhelming and stressful. It can feel impossible to keep up.
Meditation as a tool to combat stress
The world keeps moving faster and the louder it gets, the harder it can be to hear our own inner guidance system. This makes it hard to know what to do next.
A meditation practice can help. Meditation helps us disconnect, get quiet and reconnect with ourselves. In this way, we can hear our own inner knowing over the noise of the world around us.
Keep it simple
Meditation doesn’t have to be a big production. It requires no special skills or training, only the willingness to sit and listen. In today’s video, I will lead you through a simple, 5-minute seated meditation practice. You can do this practice anytime and anywhere you want to feel more grounded or are craving a bit of calm. Try meditating for 5 minutes every day for the next week. I’d love to hear about what you experienced.

Thank you, Diane. I needed that. It wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be. I’ll try to extend the time minute by minute.
