I’m currently halfway through my Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction course at Queen’s University, Belfast. It’s a bit of a fancy term for sitting meditation because that’s we’re doing. As part of the course we meditate every morning doing a body scan and/or a 10 minute silence. Our tutor has also suggested homework for us and I’m recommending you try it too.
In the car, before you turn on the ignition, take 3 deep breaths and feel the breath going in and out of the body. Then start the car and see how being mindful affects your subsequent journey. That’s it!
