With the ongoing war in Ukraine, it feels like world events can be extremely stressful. That can make it hard to find the time and space for meditation. It's more important than ever to find ways to center yourself and connect with your inner peace.

Here are a few tips for meditating when the world feels chaotic.

  1. Make time for yourself every day. Even if it's just for a few minutes, make a point to find some peace and quiet each day.
  2. Find a comfortable place to sit or recline. You may want to use a cushion or blanket to make yourself more comfortable.
  3. Close your eyes and focus on your breath. Inhale and exhale slowly and deeply, focusing on the sensation of the breath moving in and out of your body.
  4. When you notice your mind wandering, gently bring your attention back to your breath.
  5. Don't worry if you can't meditate for very long or if your mind is constantly racing. Just do your best to relax and focus on your breath.

Meditation can be a great way to connect with your inner peace and find calm in the midst of chaos. It may take a little practice, but eventually, you'll be able to find a sense of peace even when the world is in turmoil.

In these challenging times, it also helps to focus your mind on something peaceful, like nature or a place you find happy. Try to visualize that place in your mind's eye, instead of clearing your mind for meditation completely.
