I am one of those people who wakes up at 2am and worries about things that do not matter AT ALL.  Such as the email I forgot to send or whether I should get my son a size 3 or 4 in jeans.

Do you do this too?

As I write this I am feeling bonkers. No shit, I will stress for yonks over ridiculous things that during the day have zilcho importance.

I find it tricky to slow my thoughts and ‘just be’ at the best of times. I try and meditate daily which often turns to weekly, but at least I have the thought to do it right? Surely that counts for something!

When a friend passed on this super duper simple mediation technique that takes literally 30 seconds of your time I was all ears and namaste.

Being my obsessing stressy self I am now all over this practice like a rash.  It is a little tool in my belt that I rip out if I’m feeling over whelmed, anxious, worrying about dumb shit or even if I have a few minutes to spare.

It is called the 4,7,8.

Check out the below video and give it a crack. Pop it in your tool belt and hopefully it helps you stress a little less. I think it may just be taking the edge off for me.

Namaste time poor zen seekers, get cracking on your 4,7,8’ing.

What do you do to slow your mind?
