For the start of the New Year, I have a very simple meditation for you today, the ten count. I’ve shared this one before, but will do it again with fresh, new, new years’ energy.
This is a great meditation, or mindfulness exercise, to step gently into the meditative waters, and begin working to tame your monkey mind.

Okay, this is a very simple meditation, at least on paper.
The goal is to simply to repeat 10 breaths, or ten inhales and 10 exhales, without hopping on a train of thought.
In other words, if you picture yourself in the train station of your mind, we don’t want to catch any of the trains (or thoughts) coming into or leaving the station. We can see them come in. Watch them stop, or head back on their way, but we don’t want to hop on the traincar and explore. You already have a great train, it’s the meditation you’re doing.
So we’ll simply inhale…and count to 5, exhale, count to 5, and do this ten times in a row…when a thought comes up, and it will…see the thought, but leave it alone. If it helps, you can say drop it…or thinking, or simply I am present a recent favorite of Jessica’s inspired by our upcoming interview with Paul Selig.
You can do this meditation sitting down with both feet planted firmly on the ground, or laying down on your back. Eventually, you could even, or espically do this walking, or running as well…it’s one of the first meditations we taught in our mindful running and mindful walking programs…
