With final exams and the semester coming to an end, I think we could all use a moment to unwind. I know this time can be a bit stressful and overwhelming and I think it’s so important to take a step back, breathe, and refocus. That being said, the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh, PA has been putting out some fantastic short meditations that I thought were perfect for this time.
They have a variety of different guided meditations where you can choose whichever one you feel you need the most to unwind. The one I thought was ideal for everyone and can be used for any time you need to refocus was their “Counting Meditation.” It utilizes Isamu Noguchi’s “Measured Time” clock and kitchen timer as a visual aid to take you through the meditation. It’s a short 3-minute meditation that really helps you be more mindful and present by allowing you to take a moment to stop and focus on your breathing. It’s a great way to slow down and gather yourself and your thoughts.
