Why Meditate?

Seriously. Why meditate? Sure, you've heard that it was good for you.  People tell you how they have started a meditation practice and it's been transformative. Your doctor may have even suggested that you "try out meditation" to deal with stress or stress-related symptoms,  but maybe you feel like you don't fit the image of a meditator or maybe you don't even know where to begin?

I have some great news for you.  In order to start a meditation practice,  you don't need to be a monk, you don't need complete silence, you don't need to go on a retreat (although that would be great),  you don't need to be flexible or have perfect posture and you don't need to meditate for hours on end (at least not to start).  However, if you are a newbie to meditation, I strongly suggest you try out a guided meditation.  You can search youtube for them or even try out mine (it's free and you'll also receive my monthly newsletter too, it's packed with good stuff).  There are a zillion apps out there, too that can help you start your own meditation practice, too. 

If you decide that you'd like to begin a mediation practice, but need some help, I'm excited to say that in a few weeks, I will be launching my first online course.  It will be free and will be consist of 7 days of guided meditations.  All you will need is 10 minutes a day to devote to this practice.  I am so excited about this and will let you all know once it is launched.  In the meantime, check out guided meditations out there on the interweb. Better yet, sign up for mine as a preview as to what's to come.  Now off to work.
