Take a meditation moment
Meditation is not something mystical or difficult to do. Like most things, it just takes practice. However, PhD students are workaholics, and it’s hard to escape that persistent, “I should be writing,” mantra constantly echoes in your head. Meditation is a way of teaching your mind to hush, even if it just for a moment. However, your mind, like the rest of you, needs time to rest and recover, too.
I share a very short video that may help you get started with meditation. The key is to tell the monkey mind to focus on breath. Simple, right?
It will be!
