The Brushing My Teeth Meditation


The “Brushing My Teeth” Meditation

Our day presents us with many simple and repetitive activities to become more fully present ~ to practice meditation. We can pick one for today that doesn’t require any thinking. You know, the habitual activities we do on “autopilot” like ~ brushing our teeth.

I love this meditation because I have it ritualized already. I show up everyday to do it. Sometimes more then twice! It also has a beginning and an end ~ and it’s short.

Here are the “I’m brushing my teeth meditation” instructions ~

Before you begin to brush your teeth set an intention to meditate ~

“my intention is to stay present as I’m brushing my teeth.”

When you notice that your mind has drifted away (and it will) from witnessing yourself brushing your teeth simply drift your attention back to “I’m brushing my teeth.” You may find that your attention drifted away from witnessing yourself brushing your teeth the whole time. That’s ok. That is meditation ~ we drift back and forth from the object of our attention to thoughts, sounds, physical sensations and then back to the object of our attention.

Please do not be hard on yourself or scold yourself. Have a sense of lightness around your meditation practice. 🙏
