How do you meditate if you don’t have time for a full-on meditation?

For many of us here at Mudita (however not for all of us!) meditation is a daily practice which helps regain inner peace and focus.

However, sometimes we don’t have time for a full-on practice.

What do you do if you don’t have a lot of time for a regular meditation practice?
Have you ever tried meditation in a public transport? Or while going for a walk?
Have you ever tried focusing on your breath or listening to relaxing music?
What works best for you during busy days?

We’d greatly appreciate if you could share your experience with us! :slight_smile:

I’ve never tried meditation, but due to the meditation timer on the Mudita Pure I’m interested in giving it a try.


I am more of a relaxing music kind of person. Yesterday I had a nice moment with this album by C. Diab.

When I’m too busy to have a full on meditation session, I practice mindfulness throughout the day. In the form of mindful walking, having a tea or coffee meditation, and anytime I am waiting for an appointment or for someone and I dont have anything to do.


That’s cool, did you ever research meditations? Do you know how does such meditation timers works? :woman_in_lotus_position:

Hi! This is interesting, do you use any tools for these moments of mindfulness? Any meditation apps or something? Can you describe more these moments? What do you do, what do you think about? :woman_in_lotus_position:

Hey there guys I’m new to this group but I couldn’t help but see the topic. I also used to have the same problem until I started following this one guy who helped through it, I don’t have the videos right now but I can send you the link (it’s free) where he guides you through it… this is the link
Much love, Mercy


Breathing is one of my go-to mindfulness activities when meditation isn’t practical. Something as simple as focusing on the breathe without trying to alter the breath pattern can provide a sense of calm. I also like @nkarp14 strategy of simply focusing on a simple task (walking, drinking, etc.) as a form of mindfulness.
