Meditate

Meditate
Spend time in quiet contemplation.
Release your thoughts, feelings and body sensations.
Release and relax.
Focus inward without expectation.
Write notes about any insights that have emerged.





Meditation doesn't have to be a sit-with-your-eyes-closed kind of experience. It can be walking or focusing your mind on an image or something in nature. 

Most of us have "monkey mind" when we're first starting this practice. Our minds tend to wander in a variety of directions naturally. Does this sound familiar to you? 

Know that it takes practice -- that's why it's called a meditation practice! -- to get better at calming your mind. Even people who have years of experience with meditation will probably tell you that sometimes they have "monkey mind"! They just know to keep re-focusing their thoughts and mind.

You may not get any insights when you first try meditating. That's ok! 

Keep trying... you didn't ride a bike around the block the first time you tried, either, did you!?
