Are You Tired of the “Happy Birthday” Song?

Recite the Metta Meditation as You Wash Your Hands

If you are tired of singing the Happy Birthday song as you practice good handwashing technique, use that time for a short meditation break.

Metta Meditation

May all beings be happy.
May all beings be healthy.
May all beings be free from suffering.
May all beings be at peace.

Repeat the meditation twice slowly and mindfully. (If you are inclined to rush, repeat it three times.)

The Benefits

In addition to the benefits of good handwashing, using the Metta Meditation calms and refocuses mind and body.  It sends positive energy into a world that desperately needs it.
