I often find myself doing two or three things at once, running and listening to music, eating and watching/reading something, checking my iPhone whilst waiting for something to download on my computer. Silent meditation helps me to re-focus and to remember to just sit.
Try this meditation with your eyes open, and allow yourself to just listenfor five minutes. What does "silence" sound like? How does it affect you? Are you able to continue breathing into the silence and be still?
I would love to hear your thoughts and experiences in the comments below!
