I’ve got another little trick called the 20 Second meditation that I would like to share with you quickly today.
The reason why this is called The 20 Second Meditation is because a meditation is a one pointed concentration on something, generally we focus on our breath. The 20 Second Meditation however is a focus on positivity and similar to that of a mantra meditation.
There is no need to sit crossed legged on the floor, or with your eyes closed I do this walking in the countryside or taking a shower or simply wandering down the street.
When in negativity, science tells us that 17 seconds of continuous positivity changes our thought patterns and generates more positivity on its own.
How do I start
For the first time you do this 20 Second Meditation find somewhere quiet and private.
Now For 20 seconds I want you to tell yourself how amazing you are. And I want you to do this out loud, doing this exercise out loud works better than quietly in your mind. I want you to Just keep praising yourself, tell yourself how proud you are of yourself, how wonderful, how amazing, how great, and do it with passion.
Keep going for the full 20 seconds, and you will see the shift inside yourself. Keep going with praise of kindness and positivity for that full 20 Seconds.
Just 20 seconds
At first it feels a little hard and strange but keep going for just 20 seconds and you will feel the shift inside yourself
It’s a bit like pushing a car, the first bit requires effort to get the car rolling, but once moving it will keep rolling for a bit all on its own. Just like your mind, effort to start the shift keep the momentum up for 20 seconds and you can stop. Your mind will keep rolling for a bit with positivity. We have changed our negativity mindset into a positive in just 20 seconds.
I do hope you have fun with this little exercise, and if you follow this website it’s just another tool for you to combat any negativity that may arise.
