Sit.Stay.Breathe.

Maintaining a meditation practice can be difficult. We live in a world filled with distractions. Chris and I like to keep it simple and make it routine. Be still. Close your eyes. Focus on your breath. The more you practice, the more you will appreciate your ability to tap into that calm feeling. Think of it as a skill you are developing. It takes time and persistence. See what happens when you start to slow down and check in with yourself. Psychologist Victor Frankl wrote, “Between stimulus and response there is a space. In our response lies our growth and freedom.” We have control over our own lives. We can control our moods and responses more than we think we can. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could instantly reduce feelings of stress, anger, or anxiety? At the same time increase energy, creativity and peace!! Meditation gives us the opportunity to push pause, reflect and make better choices. Peace out!

    Hello, this is me returning the favour and having a look at your blog. Firstly, great concept. Mind, body and wellness are something that I grow more interested in as time goes by. Particularly meditation, or Mindfulness, as it has been hugely beneficial to helping my anxiety. The only constructive criticism I would make is try and make the posts a little longer to engage people more. Peace out.
