I was caregiver for my Dad, Mom and brother for several years until their passing.   Although, I concentrated on their needs which were  overwhelming most times, I found meditating early in the morning proved very helpful and relaxing before starting a challenging day.   Medication and prayer help were useful tools during these difficult times.

There is a walking meditation. The object to come back to is the feet touching the ground. I really like to do it in a park or nature area but it is also good walking to a destination or even down the hall. It is really nice when you are walking a labyrinth.

I wonder if you can meditate while your walking?

I meditate twice daily with different techniques: qigong standing meditation (zhan zhuang) in the morning and sitting meditation with religious content in the evening. Standing meditation is good for stabilizing the body and cultivating energy, and a precursor to other qigong practices and tai chi. Sitting meditation is both relaxing and spiritually meaningful.

My Apple Watch has a very simple breathing exercise which is similar to meditation. The watch reminds me throughout the day to stop and breath with a flower opening and closing. It is very soothing and quiets my mind.

Thank goodness for my Apple Watch that reminds me to consciously breathe and take a few minutes to myself during the day. A quiet time by myself first thing in the morning with deep breaths gets my day started on the right foot!

I list "meditate" as a daily to-do item on my Reminders app.  Once a week, I try to meditate with a "sangha" (meditation group).  Most weeks, we meditatte for about 20 minutes, discuss a "dharma" (reading related to meditation) for about 20 minutes, and then meditate for another 20 minutes.  Having a regular meditation schedule with a group ensures that I really will meditate on those days.

 

The rest of the week, I try to meditate at least 15 minutes each day, using the free Insight Timer app on my phone to time me or to give me a guided meditation of a specified length.  If I can't find 15 minutes, then I will at least do a five- or ten-minute (usually guided) meditation.
