Meditation Madness!

There are a lot of benefits of meditation. If you’re not great at it we can work on it together. I feel relaxed and calm after I meditate but I still haven’t mastered it. I move too much and always peek to see how much time has passed. People do a lot of different things to ease their mind. Some people find comfort in a cocktail some find it in a plate of their favorite food…both can make you gain weight. Who has time for that? I think it is so worth it to meditate and I hope you give it a try or keeping trying (if you’re like me) We can do it!
