Hate washing dishes?? It's actually good for your mental health...IF you use it as an opportunity to meditate.

According to a story from elitedaily.com:

"Meditation happens because I'm focusing on the dish and the water, and I'm not thinking about the argument I had with a mate or a deadline I missed at work,"

Other daily routines that you may take for granted can also be a great time to get some relaxation. Walking the dog or even something as simple as drinking a cup of coffee can be the perfect time for some meditation.

As busy as a day can be especially now that school is about to begin, it is hard to find time for traditional meditation. These simple tasks can be the 5 minutes you need to reset and focus and get your mind back on track.
