Meditation & Mindfulness - overcoming skepticism
I felt completely out of my comfort zone when I first mediated. I expected so much to happen, proof that it was doing me good. But instead I couldn't stop fidgeting. That was five years ago and I now know that it's OK to fidget, it's OK for my mind to think about what I'm having for dinner and it's OK to scratch my nose.
My daily mediation practice involves getting up at 5 am and meditating for 30 minutes, which I now look forward to.
What is important in a meditation practice is to be consistent. Coming back to the present moment, focusing on the breath, being mindful of the sounds around you and your body in contact with the earth are simple things we can do to reduce stress in our lives. Meditation & Mindfulness
