Well-BEing Wednesday: Why I Meditate

Meditation is simply the act of thoughtless awareness. You don’t meditate to think, you meditate to free your mind of thoughts.

Let’s Get Meditated

My first thoughts of meditation was what is this woo-woo stuff / how in the world am I going to be able to sit still and be quiet / I have too much going on to meditate / how is this going to help me. All of this filled my mind, yet I figured it would not hurt to give it a try.

Meditation is essentially the art of focusing your attention. Whether you focus on your breath, a mantra (or scripture) or use visualization; meditation is simply being intentional with your focus.
