It improves your health dramatically. Meditation is all about quieting the mind (as much as possible). Think about the term “watching paint dry” that’s what I want you to do. Really just accept the challenge of sitting quietly.
It probably feels like, and even just sounds like torture, but it’s literally torture that pays off. Usually the thing that we are resisting the most, is what we need the most. What we resist, persists.
Don’t be discouraged if you can only last 5 minutes and you have thought about everything you have to do later or have done today.
Remember, just like everything in life, it began as a new skill and eventually became a habit with practice. It takes A LOT of practice to sit quietly and to release all the thoughts rolling around in your brain, especially in our social media, advertising, overstimulated world we live in today.
