Have you ever felt that you couldn’t relate to meditation? You know, that it takes itself too seriously, it’s not fun, it’s kind of boring… well chances are, you just needed to find one that swears like a sailor on leave. 😉
(P.S. Did you know that there may be some evidence that swearing increases pain tolerance and decreases perceived pain when compared with not swearing? How’s that for fucking badass news?!)
Here at Let That Shit Go, I’m all about simplifying your life – and that doesn’t just apply to the clutter in your home. Our thoughts are the basis of our actions, so I firmly believe that adding just a teensy bit of mindfulness to your day can lead to some SERIOUSLY awesome habit changes. Like, it definitely helped me work through common decluttering mistakes and beat decision fatigue, and it might just do the same for you.
And I mean what is decluttering if not slowing down and mindfully sorting through your things, in order to hone on the kind of life you want to lead?
So if you’ve been feeling stressed AF lately, or you’re cooped up at home, or having a bad day – or hell, if you’re just looking for a laugh, I hope this guided meditation will help you quiet all the bullshit and find a little calm.
Oh – and it probably goes without saying, but this meditation contains swearing/cursing and is definitely not safe for work, kids, or people without a sense of humour. 😉
Learning mindfulness has been one of the biggest game-changers in my life. I don’t meditate for hours on end, and I don’t do it every day. But sometimes it’s helpful to take a hot second to find a little stillness. (This is especially true if you feel stuck while sorting through your shit!)
I find it helpful to try and identify feelings that might be flying under the radar, like:
- Are any of my muscles feeling all crunchy bunchy?
- Am I feeling anxious?
- And WHAT THE HECK HAPPENED IN THE LAST EPISODE OF ‘LOST’?! (Okay, so sometimes my mind wanders. But it’s been years and I still don’t get it!!)
Sometimes, a few minutes of sitting and breathing is the difference between “a shitty thing that happened” and “a shitty thing that ruined my whole day”. Know what I mean?
