5 Surprising Things That Are Secretly Meditation

Life's tempo these days is like a crazy rollercoaster – whirling us around like socks in a washing machine. And let's be real, we need ways to unplug, unwind, and chill like a cucumber. Or else, we might end up as stressed as a cat during a cucumber ambush.

Enter meditation, our friendly neighborhood superhero.

Yep, it's a game-changer. Yet, meditation comes with a bunch of myths that can be as tricky as unraveling a slinky. I used to believe meditation wasn't my jam. With my mind ping-ponging around like a caffeinated kangaroo, I thought, "Well, that's not happening." But guess what? I had been meditating all along, just not in the traditional 'lotus pose' way – I meditated while reading.

Hold on tight, because there's more to meditation than meets the ohm.

Turns out, according to Veridiana Julião, meditation pro and Zen App coordinator, there are all kinds of meditation vibes out there. Let's chat about mindfulness and a dash of that groovy Hindu philosophy. You've got options, people!

Mind the Zen Gap

Mindfulness is like that chill friend who's all about staying present. It's like you and the present moment are having a serious tête-à-tête. Worries from the past? Buh-bye! Future anxieties? See ya! It's all about focusing your superpowers on one thing, like a cat eyeing a laser pointer.

So, here's the kicker: if you're totally engrossed while reading, grooving to tunes, or nailing any other activity, you're already meditating like a pro. Yes, you're doing it, and you didn't even know!

Unintentional Meditation Adventures

Here's the inside scoop: we might slip into a meditative state when we least expect it. You could be:

Crafting like a creative ninja

Tending to your plant buddies

Doing a funky dance workout

Veridiana also explains that in the world of Hindu meditation, it's like you're an onion, peeling off layers to reach your true inner self – your soul. While other activities might not put you at the 100% soul level, they're like your meditation training wheels. It's proof that you can absolutely do this.

P.S. Meditation isn't about hushing your brain – it's about tuning into yourself. So, don't worry if your brain sounds more like a rock concert than a silent retreat. And don't expect to become a meditation guru on day one – it's like thinking you'll master breakdancing in a single lesson.

Keep Calm and Zen On

Remember, Rome wasn't built in a day. Marathon runners didn't start with a sprint. And just like that, meditation takes practice. If you're new to the meditation club, start small. At Zen App, Veridiana suggests hopping into guided meditations. They're like a gentle hand-holding session, with meditations as short as four minutes (yep, you heard that right).

When thoughts pop up during meditation, treat them like clouds drifting by – acknowledge them, and then let them float away. They're just thoughts, after all. And remember, it's all about the journey. Whether you're reading, dancing, or even just savoring the stillness, it's your personal journey to zen, baby!
