After a busy day of taking care of kids, working, and or both your mind is likely to be full of “to do lists” making it difficult to focus on one thing.  Try this simple one minute meditation to gain focus and clarity of mind.  In a seated position (you can sit at a chair at your desk), light a candle (preferably a soothing essential oil scented candle).  While gazing at the candle inhale and exhale while stating to yourself, “I am focused”.  Repeat the mantra for approximately one minute.  At the end of the minute shit your gaze or blow out the candle.  Notice the difference in the clarity of your mind!
