Have you ever participated in an active meditation before? If so, what do you like to do?

If you don’t think so, chances are that you have, even if you didn’t realize it.

Whenever you are completely focused on what you are doing . . . in the zone, like in sports, relaxed like when you’re getting a massage, or content like when working on a hobby like art or taking a hike . . . that is very similar to a meditative state.

The biggest difference is that meditation is a purposeful act of taking control of your focus, emotions and thoughts by a deliberate choice of attention.

Artwork can be meditative

Hiking can be meditative

Writing can be meditative

Dancing can be meditative

Acts of service can be meditative

Singing can be meditative

The point of meditation is ultimately to tap into our true nature by peeling away the layers of illusions of our body and circumstances. Using positive activities are a great way to learn to focus your attention, if sitting still isn’t working for you.

If you’d like to try a drawing meditation, here’s one of my favorites that I use when I’m experiencing high anxiety and can’t focus: https://youtu.be/DNaNkF64yP8
