Meditation can get a reputation for being just for those that are zen or a little out there…wrong…we all should be doing it. But there I go “shoulding” on myself. We all MUST meditate. Must is a very strong word but after reading studies about meditation and the effects on the human mind, body, and soul I am sold.
Its helped with high blood pressure, certain psychological disorders, and pain among other things!
Try it. Sit in your favorite chair or position. I have a friend who likes to lay on the floor and meditate so do what ever works for you. Set a timer for the time you want to spend in your quiet space. Close your eyes and breath. If you need a mantra to keep yourself centered or to say when your brain starts to wonder set one. It can be as simple as “thank you” Or even “Om”
If you want a guided meditation there are tons out there. I am really enjoying the one Oprah and Deepak are doing currently.
Find what is a good fit for you and do it consistently. You will find yourself feeling more peace, openness, peace, and love.
