More meditation videos & music

Here's a plan for a 15-minute stress-busting meditation break:

First, brew a cup of green tea. Once the leaves have steeped for 3 to 5 minutes, remove the leaves from the water. (Or, if you're brewing in a teapot, pour a cup of tea from the pot.) While waiting for the tea to cool, play the first video. Keep your eyes closed and focus on the music. Try to smell the tea that's cooling.

When the first video is done, have a few sips of tea. Between sips, breathe deeply. When you've finished about half of the tea, start the second video.

Close your eyes and relax again. Focus on the music, on the taste of the tea in your mouth, on the warm feeling of the tea in your belly.

When the 2nd video is over, finish the rest of your tea, then stand up and stretch your arms above your head.

Don't you feel better?
