You’ve worked 8 hours a day, Monday through Friday, and you’re looking forward to the weekend.

That is, until you remember you’ve got a “fun” run on the shcedule, and your sister’s cousin’s husband’s niece’s first birthday on Sunday, and you’ve got a long list of chores around the house that need attention.

The key to meditation is calming the mind. For most people, this may seem impossible, but with a few minutes of focused breathing, sitting still and letting yourself be truly calm, it will start to seem less impossible to find your zen.

The benefits of mediation range across many areas of life, from reduced stress to improved concentration. An article from the Huffington Post on the subject says that meditation “encourages a healthy lifestyle, increases self-awareness, increases happiness, increases acceptance, slows aging, and improves cardiovascular and immune health.”

There are thousands of videos for guided meditation online, some with specific goals like decreasing anxiety, and others with more general aspirations.

If videos aren’t your style, you can also download a meditation app that can guide you to enlightenment, whenever you need it. Some of the more popular apps include Headspace, Buddhify and Sattva, but there are hundreds more to choose from.

Whatever your method, by incorporating meditation into your weekend routine (busy or not), you’ll be your most prepared for the week ahead.
