Med­i­tate to sound

The Simple Things - - LIVING | MINDFULNESS -

Be­ing in a noisy train car­riage can be a good opportunity to med­i­tate mind­fully. No­tice the sounds that sur­round you. Close your eyes and hop from sound to sound: the train vi­bra­tions, the doors open­ing and clos­ing, peo­ple talk­ing, news­pa­pers rustling, some­one on the phone, high heels tap­ping, scratch­ing, the train en­ter­ing a tun­nel, two trains pass­ing each other, doors open­ing, peo­ple shuf­fling out, some­one clear­ing their throat, zips be­ing pulled. This med­i­ta­tion ex­er­cise in­volv­ing sound can be prac­tised any­where. You could do it sit­ting on a bench, ly­ing down on the grass or at the hair­dresser’s.
