Quiet the Mind

In a modern society, it’s easy to let our mind get cluttered with thoughts. I have what some people call ‘Monkey Mind’ and can be severely affected by these statements and questions swirling in my head. For me, the symptoms of a messy mind include; feeling anxious/stressed, having a buzzing sensation at the base of my skull (I picture the chaotic thoughts waiting to be silenced), wanted to stress eat or shop, etc.

Did you know that with just a minute a day, you can decrease stress and anxiety with meditation?  We are a busy society that thrives off of a crammed schedule and multi-tasking.  Just taking a moment to quiet our mind has amazing benefits and can bring serenity to our world.

Meditation also allows us to get in touch with our soul, our inner self. You may hear messages or see visions while in a meditative state.

This practice is probably the number one routine that helps me stay grounded and balanced.

I recommend this practice for a happy life. What have you got to lose?
