Welcome! I’m so glad you have taken this step!

For the next 3 weeks we will send you 2 emails a week that will include a link to a guided meditation – listen and follow the instructions. Do this at least once a day and start developing your meditation ‘muscle’.

Mental Fitness

You see, meditation is a lot like going to the gym: just like the muscles on your body, your meditation ‘muscle’ grows quickly with training -  you may notice some meditation perks pretty quickly.

Also, just like getting more fit, the benefits of meditation grow with consistency of practice.


BUT - FIRST THINGS FIRST!


If you are going to DO THIS – then decide to
   DO THIS ‘meditation thing’ EVERY DAY for the next 3 weeks.


   21 days. 21 meditations.

Actually decide to commit.

Commit to taking time everyday to pay attention to your experience as it is happening.

 

This is what meditation is - it is becoming an observer, so to speak, of the moment, without wanting or needed to change it.


Let's get started!

Find a place to ‘sit’. When you pause to notice your experience (in other words when you choose to meditate) we call this ‘sitting’, whether you are actually sitting down or not.

 

It is possible to meditate while standing, walking, sitting on a chair sitting on the floor, or while lying down.


"Fall Awake!"

Choose a position that allows you to be comfortable AND alert. (This means cozied up under a quilt in bed after a long day is probably NOT the best choice of place OR time to nurture paying attention!)

Now, go ahead and listen to the guided meditation. You can download the MP3 for offline use if you'd like.

Pause and listen to the recording every day.

We'll be back in a few days with the next step in your meditation journey.

Wishing you good health and well-being!
