These brief guided mindfulness exercises can help provide a respite from your busy day. Each is about 2 minutes long and they can be done alone or together.

Moment of Mindful Movement

Try the Moment of Mindful Movement if you’d like to take a break from sitting and feel more energized, or to help you shift restless energy before doing the Moment of Mindful Stillness. This is also a good option if you tend to have difficulty with sitting/still meditation.

Moment of Mindful Stillness

Try the Moment of Mindful Stillness, if you’re looking for some restful calm, or as a pause before doing the Moment of Mindful Movement.
