Meditation Saved My Life

If you want to conquer the anxiety of life, live in the moment, live in the breath.
— Amit Ray

I get out of bed every morning and sit right down again on a stiff purple meditation pillow, a Tibetan scarf draped over my legs and my fingers curved into a "focus" mudra.

I wouldn’t be where I am today without it.

This daily personal practice gives me so much. I tune the world out, and tune into me. Meditation is strong. It changes your brain, potentially forever, and always for the better.

Begin with just a few minutes a day. Set your iPhone timer for three minutes, close your eyes, and focus on your breath. Don’t stop til that timer goes off. Don’t even open an eyelid. Keep practicing this, stretching the time to four minutes, then 5.

This time will become a gift to yourself. One that requires dedication, sure. One that doesn’t always feel awesome. Some days, you won’t want to. But follow it through, and you’ll be happier, brighter, and your days will sparkle.
