Do you meditate? I myself have been meditating for over 2 years now. Daily. Usually for only 5-15 minutes. But that 5 minutes is enough for me to center, calm, relax, breath, and listen.

I highly recommend the website and app calm.com. It got me started off in the right direction with my meditation practice and I still use the app to this day. They offer timed meditation or guided. And is a wonderful place to start if your new to the journey.

I have even used meditation when I need it in times of high stress/nervousness/anxiety. For instance yesterday while waiting in the doctors office exam room I meditated and became much less anxious and more present in the moment.

Remember meditation is not about not thinking it’s about allowing your thoughts to pass through your mind freely and from judgement. It doesn’t take long at all to do, just a few moments is enough to feel the benefits. Meditation can be used in a variety of ways to help you and can be done easily enough where ever you may be, during anytime of the day. Meditation is for everyone, not just monks in Tibet. How can meditation serve you and your life? Give it a try, you never know, you might like it.
