The importance of a drop of water cannot be explained to someone who doesn’t need it, but ask someone who has been thirsty for hours, and that one drop can mean the world, even though it won’t be enough.
The importance of two minutes is the same. It won’t matter to many but for someone who is drowning in distractions and is overwhelmed with anxiety, two minutes of calm can mean the world.
Taking out two minutes whenever possible to be mindful sounds extremely easy. It is easy, and all you have to do is focus on your breathing. That’s it!
Two minutes might not sound much, but the calmness you achieve is soothing, especially if you are easily distracted.
Practicing mindfulness for two minutes between tasks, during breaks, in anxious situations can help you create your bubble of calmness. You feel free, even if it is for a few minutes.
I won’t lie, two minutes is not going to be enough to keep you calm all day, but it is a start, and when you learn to plan your two minutes strategically, you can resist anxiousness, urges and even your spontaneous reactions that you might regret later.
So, go ahead, create your own bubble of calmness and make the most out of your two minutes that matter!
