Meditating.... Why should I?
Daily meditation can keep you on track.
Daily life... you go to work, get groceries, pick up the kids from school, make dinner, do the dishes, fold laundry, pick up the house and put the kids to bed. Does this sound familiar? Chances are, you've done those things, if not more, in the last 24 hours. Question is, what have you done for YOU? Life is so busy and complex and it often allows little time for self-care and daily meditation.
The world has set high expectations for what you should be accomplishing on a daily basis, which in turn, leaves a grueling schedule and you feel utterly exhausted by the end of the day.
The thought of starting a daily mediation routine may be daunting. Where do you start? How do you choose the right meditation practice that's right for you? It's really simple to add mediation to your daily routine and it promotes so many benefits to one's health. Daily meditation is a proven method to decrease stress and increase clarity, energy and motivation and organization.
