I am getting to find meditation a real aid to a healthy lifestyle. Instead of constantly letting my thoughts rattle on I am learning to focus on simple things and letting the wonder of life enshroud me. For instance, instead of just rushing about I have started saying ‘hello’ to the pansies outside my front door and really noticing how beautiful they are. I natter to the squirrels as I feed them and in general try to appreciate everything around me. It helps that I have a great meditation program called Calm that encourages me to focus–because that’s the toughest thing to learn–just to be still and follow the breath. Try it yourself. It will help you develop a new way of Life!
