This is a practice from my latest book: “Leap Before You Look.” This practice is chosen from the section “Meditation Practices.”

In the midst of your busy day, when there seem to be so many things to do,
Stop moving, stop talking,
Stop what you are doing, and feel.
Hold your body in the same position.
Feel this moment just as it is. Hear the sounds.
Notice the sensations in the body.
Notice the speed and texture of your thoughts.
Remain like this for sixty seconds.
See? The world around you continues, even without your involvement.
Who are you now, outside of the game?
Now continue with your day.
