Quick meditation for focus anytime
As success-driven individuals, we work hard every single day. Often, though, we obsess over our work while overlooking our work’s impact on our mental health, and the impact that our mental health has on our productivity. We strive for progressive business growth and happiness with our loved ones. And when we take on more responsibilities and tasks, we take on everything that comes with them: frustration, headaches, stress and anxiety, which can cause a lot of mental clutter.
It’s this clutter that gets in the way of achieving our goals. But what if you could start each day with a clean slate of clarity, focus and a sense of purpose to guide you?

Wake up with a quick meditation for focus
Why is breakfast considered the most important meal of the day? Because it primes your body’s systems and metabolism. It fires your physical body’s engine. But what are you doing each day to prime your mental engine for the complexity of your personal and professional life?
A morning ritual is a great way to get yourself ready to take on the day and clear your mind of information that does not serve you. Your morning ritual shouldn’t be long and taxing. It should be a short, relaxing period for reflection and mindfulness.
Research shows that our reactions are “primed” by our moods and experiences. This is the basis of priming theory. Priming is the act of taking time to adjust your thoughts and emotions, so you can live your life in your peak state. When you learn how to master your emotions and reset your mood, you’ll prime yourself to succeed in any facet of your life.
Try this quick meditation for focusing your thoughts, purpose, happiness and performance. This 10-minute priming exercise is comprised of eight simple steps, including:
- Heart breathing: Place your hands over your heart and focus on the airflow moving in and out.
- Practice gratitude.
- Visualize healing.
- Share your energy: As you heal, extend your positive energy to others.
- Focus and celebrate victory: Focus on three goals. Step into the excitement you will feel once each one is accomplished – and how each goal impacts others.
- Stretch and take on the day!
Yes, it’s that easy. Practicing this priming exercise for 10 minutes a day can be the difference between where you are and where you want to be – both personally and professionally.
Can meditation help you achieve more?
Meditation is known for improving overall health, combating depression, lowering blood pressure, assisting with pain management, reducing anxiety and much more. It also helps you understand what drives your patterns of behavior and allows you to shift those patterns to serve you instead of holding you back.
The practice of meditation has been observed and studied for thousands of years. The scientifically-backed benefits are staggering, yet many of us don’t invest the small amount of time necessary to achieve results. Meditation takes practice to develop a system that works for you, but the return on investment is astounding.
If you invest time and energy into a quick meditation for focusing your mind, you will experience benefits well beyond improved focus.

Imagine you are a business owner who starts every day primed and running at peak state. You have zero distractions in your mind. Your vision, intent and purpose are clear. You are in the zone. How efficient and effective would you be at running and scaling your business?
Now, imagine if every person in your company was primed and running at peak state. How do you think your company would perform?
By decreasing stress and distractions, you will perform better. Upgrade your morning ritual, cleanse your mental palate and unleash your potential. Start priming yourself for greater success. It may not happen immediately, but with constant and consistent practice, you and your business will both reach a higher level of achievement.
