Meditation can seem intimidating, and for many people, sitting cross-legged in the lotus position with their eyes closed is not something they want to do (including me!). That’s why I’m here! To explore some of the common and not-so-common ways to meditate that will fit into anyone’s lifestyle – no matter what your schedule looks like or even if you don’t think you have the time. Let’s dive in!

Walking Meditation

This type of meditation is great for those who have trouble sitting still. Before you begin, pick a natural setting such as a park or beach, where there are no distractions or loud noises. Start off by taking a few deep breaths to relax your mind and body and then walk slowly while focusing on your breath. Pay attention to the details around you such as the colors of the trees and plants, birds chirping, and other sounds surrounding you. How do your feet feel with each step ou take?  When thoughts come up, simply observe them without judgment until they drift away.

Yoga Meditation

This type of meditation combines physical exercise with mindful breathing techniques which help bring peace and relaxation to your body and mind at the same time! All you need is a yoga mat (or just a comfortable spot on the floor), some comfortable clothing, and an open heart ready to find inner peace through movement.

Listen To Music

Music has long been known as an effective form of therapy for reducing stress and calming anxious thoughts. Find songs that make you feel empowered or inspired—whether it’s rap music or classical music—and just let the soundwaves do their thing. Take time to focus on the lyrics or just enjoy the melody without any judgment or expectations. You can even make up silly dances as you go along if that’s your jam! Whatever works for you!

Get Creative With Art

Drawing, painting, sculpting, papercrafting—you name it! Art provides us with an outlet to express ourselves in ways words simply cannot describe. Use art as a form of self-expression and exploration during times when you don’t know how else to process certain emotions or experiences. Whether it’s making abstract shapes on paper with nothing but a crayon, doodling random sketches in your notebook, or creating something more intricate like an oil painting – get creative and let loose! Let the art guide you through this moment of peace and relaxation instead of forcing yourself into one specific way of thinking about things.  You can even join us on February 8th for some creative fun with papercrafting.


Meditation is an amazing way for us all to tap into our inner wisdom, stay connected with ourselves throughout our day-to-day tasks, reduce stress levels, get clarity on life decisions we need to make, and foster greater self-love & acceptance within ourselves – among many other benefits! No matter what type of meditation practice works best for you – whether it be walking meditation, yoga meditation, listening to music, or doing some kind of arts & crafts- enjoy exploring these practices so that they become part of your daily routine & help support & nurture YOUR journey towards health & well-being!
