To me, meditation is my quiet time. Once I made the commitment to sit every single day, a shift was made in my mind and body. We’re all busy, we all have hectic schedules – kids, work, school, family, pets, babies and the list continues on. Even though those things do exist, it doesn’t give you the excuse not to take 15 minutes for yourself every single day to breathe, to listen and to feel. You will need to be flexible with your practice, maybe it isn’t the same routine every single day because circumstances do come up, but there’s always 15 minutes in another part of your day. To quiet and focus your mind is to create peace inside but also outside. It effects every part of your day with yourself and others, just by sitting for a few minutes. Even if your mind is wandering the whole time, at least you sat. The more you practice, the easier it will be for your mind to get quieter.
There are all different types of meditation practices – this Sunday we have Anna Antaneis coming to offer guided meditation. She’s absolutely fabulous at what she does and I know you’ll learn a ton about how you can practice this at home. I highly suggest that you come to class on Sunday at 4pm. You can signup HERE.
Meditation has made a huge impact in my life and I know it can effect yours too. Let this be your chance to make a positive change.
“Meditation is not a way of making your mind quiet. It is a way of entering into the quiet that is already there, buried under the 50,000 thoughts the average person thinks every day.” – Deepak Chopra
