Meditation

This takes practice and don’t be discouraged if your attention span is short. We’re trying to train ourselves to slow down. However long you can hold these thoughts, counts.
It is the little steps that lead to our accomplishments. “You’ve got this My Friend!”

1.  Find A Comfortable Seat

A comfortable seat would be a chair, a pillow on the floor or better yet outside taking in nature.  If you have a yoga mat, all the better. If you would like to look at yoga mats or floor pillows, you can view them here or here.

2. Sit Still

This sounds easy but I know at times it is hard to do. You can do it sitting in a chair, on the floor or even while soaking in the tub. Ahhhhh. Now close your eyes.

3. Still the MIND

Let your mind go blank. This one is a hard one, but you can do it! Even if you can only do this for 5 minutes today and increase it as you continue to practice. Practice! Practice!
