Apple Watch Meditations

The "Mindfulness" feature on an Apple Watch offers short mini-meditation themes to think (or not-think!?) about. Some examples:

Gently focus on the feeling of your breath as it rises and falls.Remind yourself of a challenge you've overcome. Think about the traits you have that helped.Think about a person you're likely to see soon. Imagine what giving them your full attention will feel like.
Bring to mind three people you are grateful to have in your life. Reflect on why you appreciate them.Notice your thoughts but try not to get caught up in them. Let them pass by.Think about something you've learned from an experience you've had recently.
Notice your emotions right now and consider how they may be shaping your experience.Find one thing to appreciate about yourself. Think about why this is meaningful for you.Think about the last time you were kind to yourself and how that felt.
Link something you're focused on to one of your core values, like kindness or integrity.Think about the best idea you've had recently and why it was so interesting to you.Think of someone who helps you feel relaxed and centered. Imagine them supporting you now.
Be curious about your own thoughts. Notice what comes up and any impressions you have.For this session simply focus on your breath. Cool as you breathe in. Warm as you breathe out.Find one thing to appreciate about someone close to you. Why is this trait meaningful?
Notice your surroundings. Appreciate the time and energy it took to create the things around you.Recall a challenge you've handled well. Apply this sense of resilience to a current problem.Think of a recent experience you've truly enjoyed. Recall what made that moment so wonderful.
Think about someone who inspires you to be a better person, and why.Rather than noticing everything around you, focus on one thing. Let it hold your attention.Become very aware of the things you see, hear, and feel. Let this focus your attention.
Recall a tough time that came up recently and what traits you have that helped you through it. Connect with your strengths.Think of a quiet place in nature. Relax into this peaceful feeling.Bring to mind something you are passionate about. Enjoy how it helps you feel fulfilled.
Think about a recent topic you were curious about. What sparked your curiosity?Creative ideas often come when we're not trying to do something. Take this time to let your mind wander.Reflect on one thing you're grateful for and think about why you appreciate it so much.
Think about how it feels to give kindness. Let that feeling flow through you.Think about something you love to do and why it brings you joy.Remind yourself of the many challenges you've overcome.
Notice any emotions you have during this time. Don't judge them, simply notice what comes up.Think about a tough situation you've faced and how you grew from it....
