For a lot of people, meditation is a scary word. We fear it will take a lot of time out of our day, it requires a supersonic level of concentration we don’t possess and we just might not ever ‘get it right’. How is it possible to every really clear your mind? And what if my legs won’t bend that way?
But the truth is, meditation, in my experience, is truly individual- it is what you make of it and you get out what you put in. The key is getting started. Recently, I talked about WHY I believe meditation might be something beautiful to add to your daily life – a small slice of peace and sanity in your otherwise crazy and chaotic day. We spend so much time running from one activity to the next, racing to cross items off our to-do list, we rarely stop to breathe.
Meditation allows you to do just that: breathe. And clear your mind.
But how do you get started? Is it complicated? Do you need to clear hours from your schedule every day? What should you wear? Just how do you ease your mind and actually begin?
