Some easy things I’ve been trying lately:
-Focusing on my breathing while driving, showering and other activities. Of course is not as intense as in Anapana when sitting in a quiet space, but I’m finding it a helpful practice to calm my mind.
-Bringing awareness over my body several times a day: am I relaxed or tense?
Am I using unnecessary muscles in the current posture? Can I feel my clothes over my skin?
-Trying to perceive my emotional states and feel how my breathing becomes deep or choppy, long or short, etc.
I’m also trying to do some walking meditation. I find it more difficult. I never had any serious instruction about it and while at the 10 days retreat I used to enjoy just walking, but now I’m trying to add a more meditative content to my walks, even when I go to get my car at the parking lot.
I think that all these things help, because the truth is that I cannot practice meditation five hours a day but PERHAPS I can bring the meditation into my activities for longer periods of time.
I wonder if other people do the same.
