The ancient tradition of meditation is becoming increasingly known, studied, and practiced for a variety of reasons, as it has multiple benefits for all aspects of well-being. Meditation teacher Mary Meckley joins me to talk about the difference between mindfulness and meditation and how to create a meditation ritual to transition to a calm and focused state. Practicing meditation has been shown to improve sleep and anxiety and promote healing, as it helps counter the stress response. People who regularly meditate find that they are more focused and productive, have more self-compassion, and feel more empowered. Many people also report that they feel more connected to everything around them and have more gratitude. Experience a brief meditation that will help you achieve a calm state and increase your sense of well-being, learning to be happy with yourself and your life, as you are now.
