Just a couple decades ago meditation was one of those “hippy” things that “regular ” folks didn’t even talk about. But today it’s very easy to find a practice – online, in person, CDs, even YouTube offers plenty of options.
It’s not a magical solution. But to sit down even for 10 mins a day and let your mind take a break from the busy-ness of every day life is the kindest thing you can do for yourself.
I personally don’t think that meditation HAS to be that of sitting cross-legged, chanting mantras. There are many forms of it: walking alone, even running after a while can take you to that place where the chatter in your mind dies out. Exercise in general helps you focus inwards but it takes that additional conscious step to make it a meditation: to turn your mind off.
Oprah and Deepak Chopra are doing a 3-week, free meditation course at the moment (started just yesterday) that helps you to get into gear and find your inner strength: “tapping into the pure, unlimited source of all peace, possibility and potential” in their words. I’m doing it ’cause I need the extra support and if you fancy joining, click here.
Do you do any kind of meditation, praying or routines that help you focus inside?
