Why Meditate: The Reasons You Should Start – Put Your Self FirstDanielle Smith
Life is crazy. A beautiful, chaotic mess that I frequently wish I could simply bring to a screeching halt like a conductor hitting the breaks on a Metro Train. Unfortunately, I don’t have that luxury. I move from one moment, one task, one joy to the next and hope that I can still find time to breathe. The thing is, I know I’m not alone on this train. I know it is overwhelming for you sometimes too – making the effort to juggle life, family, work and yes… even the things you WANT to do. (remember those? The hobbies you used to have? The things you used to do for fun?)
I know. It is easy to feel out of whack, off-kilter…. in general, just as though you might be letting life get the best of you.
So, I have an idea. A little-bitty one. It won’t take a lot of time out of your day. It isn’t terribly hard. And it just might add a little peace of mind:
I know. It sounds scary. You haven’t tried it. Doesn’t it require massive concentration? Is making time to meditate really worth it?
My thoughts (and gentle nudging) in the video below.
So, what do you think? Ready to try it? Good.
On Monday, I will guide you through how to get started. And I promise it won’t hurt a bit. And then you can come back and tell me how you are doing, if you tried it and how you feel. I’m looking forward to it.
We’ll begin feeling more peaceful together!
