Calm Your Mind With Mindfulness Meditation
I can not stress enough that Mindfulness Is A Skill That Can Be Learned! Many people are unsure of starting a meditation practice because they feel they need a natural talent. This is not the case. While we all may be born mindful and clam, we all encounter events in life that create anxiety and stress. When you practice meditation, you are learn how to respond rather than react to these events.
As the saying goes, you can’t stop the waves but you can learn to surf. (Note: as a novice surfer I must admit that meditation is even easier than riding a board!)
So my advice to you is please know that you do not need to show up calm or relaxed, or be anything other than what you are. The practice of Mindfulness Meditation can help you reduce stress, anxiety, and a myriad of physical ailments. It can even help you reduce negative self talk and deepen your compassion for others.
You don’t need to have any particular spiritual belief – you only need to have the desire to connect to the present moment.
I hope you will join me for one of these groups.
