MEDITATION BEGINS WITH IDENTIFYING YOUR WHY

It's not a trendy new thing dug up from the past. It's not a cure for every woe. Meditation is done differently by every person, can seem effortless some days while nearly impossible others. But it's worth the commitment.

Determining your why will help you better embrace this age-old practice to go inward. Tune into where you are now: what are you most struggling with, what do you need to let go of or better manage?

Sit quietly. Listen to where you mind goes when you ask yourself, 'What do I want from a meditation practice?' No matter what your reason, this is a positive step in learning to better manage the madness of life.
