Taking a Break Meditation

young-422332_640

There are going to be times during the course of our illness when we need to take a break from our daily routine. Like it or not, our minds are different from those who do not have mental illnesses. Sure, everyone experiences anxiety, low moods, and irritability. However, those of us with mental health disorders do so at greater intensities. Our threshold for such mood states is much lower. Therefore, we need more downtime, more alone time, more time to process, more time to recuperate, more time to rest.

I will take the time I need to rest when I feel myself becoming overwhelmed with daily life, and I will know peace.

  1. This is great. And it’s cool because there are so many things that may not be considered ‘meditation’ in a typical sense, but can totally be done meditatively (things like making tea, cooking, hiking alone). Good reminder. Thanks for posting.
