I have always found it difficult to meditate, but continue to try over the years. Apparently there are different types of meditation and it appears I have been mastered one type unknowingly. Who knew!

The benefits of mediation include reconnecting with your emotions, desires, and roadblocks that may be causing you stress (Thole, 2021). Thole, (2021) says meditation helps to center and ground you so you can slow down. Meditation, reduce stress, anxiety, enhances self-awareness, improves sleep, decreases blood pressure, generates kindness, helps controls pain, improves age related memory and helps fight addictions (Thole, E (2021) and Thorpe, M & Link, R. (2020).

  1. Whenever I find myself overwhelmed I take deep breaths…lol sometimes while I am working with a client… they at times interpret it as if I am frustrated. No, I am re-centering my mind, body, and spirit.
