Unnoticeable Meditation for Young Adults
An unnoticeable meditation practice is possible anywhere at any time, without anyone knowing what you are doing.
This technique brings balance into the body-mind: If angry or upset begin to practice the even breathing; it calms - just begin to breathe in and breathe out regularly. Listen to the breaths if it is quiet, but most importantly inhale and exhale evenly.
If feeling anxious at school or anywhere practice a few sets of the even breathing. Always remember in any meditation - do not hold your breath either after the inhalations or exhalations.
If you have the opportunity, take a walk while evenly breathing in and out; swinging your arms back and forth in opposition. That means, when your right foot steps forward, your left arm swings forward. I use this practice myself each day when out for a long walk along the canals in my city.
And, biking, running, and swimming are additional invigorating opportunities for reflection; meditation. These moving exercises all need increased oxygen, and when you breathe deeply and evenly you pull in oxygen and breathe out waste products like carbon dioxide.
It is interesting to note that our carbon dioxide is what plants breathe in to grow; one more example of how humans and the natural world are interdependent upon each other.
An active meditation, where there is no way to do multi-tasking, gives you a chance to clear your mind and make space for solving issues.
Walking between classes at school, while concentrating on even breathing, may be just the amount of time you need to solve a minor problem. And no one is seeing how you are making use of your time. A walk gives a change of scene, and makes us let loose of the emotional feelings that may be keeping us from seeing the facts that are really right in front of us.
