In today's episode, we are talking about meditation - misconceptions, what it is, the benefits, why we started meditating and some tools you can use to start your meditation practice.
Meditation is NOT about turning off the mind, rather it's about being in the present moment and allowing thoughts to float through your mind without engaging.
Benefits include reduced stress and anxiety, better sleep and overall health, improved relationships, clarity and concentration, which all lead to a new understanding of life.

As always, be gentle with yourself. Meditation is a lifelong practice. And while the logistics can be easy, allowing thoughts to float through your mind rather than interacting with them can be tough. Just take it one meditation at a time, and keep practicing.
