People think they need to sit up straight and hold their hands in a special way to meditate. No. While that’s one way to mediate, you can meditate while washing dishes, or walking. Just be present with what you’re doing in the moment. Fed up with traffic and the day zipping by? Take three conscious breaths at the stoplight. Be aware of breath in; breath out. At times of pain and fatigue it can be more difficult to meditate on your own. Guided meditation and hypnotherapy got me through some rough spots during cancer treatment.
The University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center has a website (link below) with quite a few guided imagery meditations specifically for cancer and caregivers. They include mediations for preparing for treatment, addressing pain, fatigue, anxiety, perspective and balance, and seven meditations specifically for caregivers.
