If the idea of clearing 20 minutes to an hour in your schedule on a busy day feels impossible, try the following 1-minute meditation with Deepak Chopra.
There’s a well-known Zen proverb that says:
“You should sit in meditation for 20 minutes every day, unless you’re too busy. Then you should sit for an hour.”
The lesson here is apparent: Those high-stress days when you’re over-scheduled and juggling multiple responsibilities are the ones when you need the calming and centering effects of meditation the most—so you better make time for it!
If the idea of clearing 20 minutes to an hour in your schedule on a busy day feels impossible, then do the following one-minute meditation with Deepak Chopra instead. By taking 60 seconds to pay attention to the breath, you’ll regain mental clarity and be better equipped to handle the demands of your day.
