What is "Meditation"?
Meditation is calming the mind, relaxing the body and spirit and listening to our inner guidance.
Meditation brings us back to our inner self and centers our energy. The buzz of our daily routines and the mental chatter as we go about our day drowns the soft whisper of our inner voice.
Why is meditation important?
Mediation helps center and ground our energy. Meditating on a regular basis sets the tone for the day and helps us remain in a calmer state when faced with the world's chatter and external influences. It clears our mind to be able to concentrate, focus, and retain information better. It centers our body and spirit, reminding us to start each and every day with a peaceful approach to our busy and rushed lives.
How often should I meditate?
Ideally, it is beneficial to meditate daily. Life gets very busy and it sometimes seems impossible to find the time to meditate. It's OK! At first, it may seem difficult to get started with a meditation routine. Setting aside even as few as 5 minutes in your day, will yield amazing results. With practice, it will become easier to create a routine for daily meditation. It's OK, if you are unable to meditate on a regular basis.
