Meditation is beneficial no matter when and where you do it, but morning meditation will set the right tone for the day ahead.

Usually, meditation is practiced standing in a straight position, with your eyes closed. But meditation has no rules, so you can practice it anywhere, anytime.

Taking few moments to concentrate on your thoughts is as useful as a seated meditation.

So, why not meditate while doing your morning coffee or tea. Prepare mentally everyday by doing these 5 simple morning meditations.

Repeat a morning affirmation

Affirmations are powerful.

What we think we become.”

It is true that our brains absorb our thoughts and process them so they show up in our daily lives. Repeating an affirmation is powerful.

While you prepare your coffee/tea repeat your favorite affirmation. It can be anything, depending the  aspect of your life you are working on.

If you are anxious you can use this affirmation: “I am safe, I am calm, all good things come to me and they bring me peace.

If your day is busy you can use an affirmation to help you cope and not pressure yourself: “I do my best every day,” knowing that whatever might come ahead you are doing the best you can.

Do a breathing exercise

Morning meditations while preparing coffee or tea would not be complete without a breathing technique.

Breathing techniques are so powerful and we can do them anywhere, anytime.

While you prepare your morning warm drink, consider doing a breathing technique for energy:

  • Inhale to the count of two
  • Exhale to the count of two
  • Inhale to the count of two
  • Exhale to the count of three
  • Inhale to the count of two
  • Exhale to the count of four
  • Inhale to the count of two
  • Exhale to the count of five

This exercise will improve your breathing and will help regulate the oxygen flow in your blood so you become more focused.

Set a positive intention for the day

It is important to start your day with a positive mindset.

While preparing your coffee/tea, think of the things you want to accomplish during the day.

Don’t stress over these things, just gently allow yourself to create a mindset and remember to always take things step by step.

A positive mindset can also be a little thing that you agree to do: helping someone, maybe you will plan to go to cinema after work, or do something that you like.

Add a pleasant and positive activity in your schedule.  Think of this activity while you prepare your tea/coffee.

Practice gratitude

We often forget that love and peace are in a deep relation with gratitude and compassion. During your morning coffee/tea ritual, think of the things and people you are grateful for.

You were given life; it is your duty (and also your entitlement as a human being) to find something beautiful within life, no matter how slight.”—Elizabeth Gilbert

Paying attention to things and people that add value to our lives put us in a positive mindset. In our modern days, gratitude is key for success and happiness as it opens the gate to our greater self.

Start the day mindfully

While preparing your tea/coffee you will do these simple morning meditation techniques that will help you through the day.

Another way to make meditation part of your morning ritual is to cultivate mindfulness.

Everything in our lives can be done mindlessly or mindfully. We surely don’t want to do things mindlessly, yet this is how we trained our brain.

Mindfulness is a state of awareness and consciousness and has great benefits for our wellbeing.  Being mindful requires your focused attention on the present moment.

So you can start “preparing tea/coffee mindfully” every morning.

Mindfulness is paying attention to your thoughts, sensations and feelings without judging them.

You can start by noticing simple things like the smell of the coffee, the color of your tea, pay attention to the present moment.

Maybe you wonder how is that helpful?

Practicing mindfulness daily you train your brain to be mindful.
