Guided meditation. Meditation is good medicine that helps clear out mental clutter and information overload. Some of the skills it teaches us are increased self-awareness, patience, imagination, and creativity. Let this short, six-minute, guided meditation take you to a place of quiet rest. See yourself sitting or lying in soft grass on the bank of a quiet river. Gently rest your attention on the sound of the water and the flow of your breath. As you notice thoughts arising, imagine placing each thought on a leaf and letting it float away. Rest and recharge.
