How to Meditate on Your Commute {musings on the NYT article}

Ángel Franco/The New York Times

It's the topic of a trending New York Times article posted this morning, wrapping up the work week with some wika, wika, wisdom. 


Most of us commute to and from work or school via trains, planes, and automobiles; okay, more like ubers, subways, and bikes. And the mere thought of it conjures up visions of overcrowded subways, traffic delays, surge pricing, and STRESS...

You may not be able to control your commute, (that's up to the commuting gods), but you are able to control how you cope with your commute

Meditation. It's simple, really. All you have to do is close your eyes and focus on the present moment. That's it. You can take your meditation to different levels, of course, but please don't be intimidated by the multitude of meditation styles, apps, and gadgets out there. Just try it.

Take a gander at my meditation 101 post for the basics.

For me, the subway, (and NYC in general), can be OVER-STIMULATING and draining for me, and meditating gives me a mini break to decompress and reset my settings. Heck, even our smartphones need a break to reboot and update.

Enjoy your weekend or Columbus Day weekend for U.S. readers!!!
