Guided Meditation

A Midday Meditation to Reset Your Day

Take a break from the whirlwind of the day with this 12-minute meditation to cultivate calm.

It’s lunchtime—the perfect time for an afternoon reset. You’ve already accomplished so much, and still have so much left to do. A midday meditation can help you slow down from the busy-ness of the morning, so you can take a moment to breathe, gather your energy, and refocus. Taking a moment for yourself in the middle of the day may help you return to your to-do list with more clarity, creativity, focus, and insight.

Meditation and pranayama coach Gabrielle Marchese’s afternoon meditation is designed to help you come back to the present moment and set your intention for the rest of your day.
