Disconnect and Return

Personalized support for learning how to integrate mindfulness into your life. Delivered fresh everyday by our world renowned experts. Choose meditation duration:

Hi, and welcome to your Daily Mindfulness.

Today I'm going to talk about

the importance of disconnecting.

So even though we're living in a

hyper-connected, busy world, it really

is important to disconnect from it all

intermittently so we can gather our

attention and return it to ourselves.

When we disconnect from all the

external busy-ness, we can return

to stillness and calm within.

When we disconnect from the external

noise, the media, the messages,

the opinions of others, then we

can hear our own inner wisdom.

When we disconnect from the

noise in our mind, we can let

go of the stress, anxiety, and

suffering that no longer serves us.

And when we disconnect from reactivity,

by breathing deeply in times of overwhelm,

we ground ourselves in strength and peace.

My invitation today is just to remember

that when you're seeking clarity,

calm, restoration, or perspective,

remember you can disconnect in

order to return to yourself, to

awareness and to the present moment.

You can disconnect and return

again and again and again.

And as always thank you for

your practice and your presence

here with us in this community.

Inviting you now to settle

in for today's meditation.
