About a decade ago I went to my first meditation class. This instructor was world-renowned and I was so excited to go to Union Square to experience what everyone was raving about.  I arrived early and took my spot on the floor along with everyone else. As the class proceeded I tried my best to calm my mind. But, all I could think about was the 1 billion things I had to do and it was making me stressed out! I wound up cutting out of class early to go shopping for shoes at DSW.

Fortunately, I gave meditation another chance and fast forward to the present day I have grown to love it. I now think of meditation as a massage for my insides and a really beautiful temporary escape from my life. The video below is one I’ve recommended to people who are familiar with the benefits of meditation but don’t know how to start. It’s only three minutes and she talks you through it so it is a great way to dip your toe in meditation waters. Meditation helps me feel calm, peaceful and focused on what’s important to me and I hope it does the same for you. In the comments section below please let me know your thoughts on the video and meditation in general 🙂
