Chuck's 5-Minute Meditation Break

5-Minute Meditation BreakWelcome to the Liquid Mind mindfulness meditation break. This page is a courtesy for those wanting a short "timed" five-minute musical meditation.

I start and end my day with a short meditation, which helps me navigate the sometimes choppy waters of e-paced modern living. Heck, go ahead and take a five-minute meditation break at work today (I won't tell anyone)!

There are hundreds of meditation techniques, but the one I use is a simple "clearing" meditation, just breathing and counting. It's normal and natural for thoughts to come and go while meditating; I just think of thoughts as clouds and let them float by.

Here's how to do it:

  1. Find a quiet place to sit, or put on your headphones (I start by thinking of a beautiful place or pleasant memory).
  2. Press the "take a break" button below and close your eyes -- adjust the music volume so it's fairly quiet.
  3. Breathe in and count "one" silently, breathe out and count "two" silently.
  4. Repeat step 3 above, allowing your breathing to naturally slow during the meditation.
  5. At the end of five minutes, the music will stop.

That's it!

Why meditate? The mental, physical, and emotional benefits of meditation are well documented by evidence-based research. It's a free and beneficial way to moderate the stress we sometimes feel, living in our hurry-up e-world. I’ve found over the years that meditation sharpens my perspective, allowing me to make well-reasoned decisions more quickly.

I began the Liquid Mind® series over 30 years ago after healing from anxiety and panic from the stress of overwork and the loss of more than 60 friends to HIV. If you suffer from anxiety or panic for any reason, there is hope! Please see this link for my story of recovering from panic and anxiety.
