Meditation?

When I was young, I vaguely remember one of my parents meditating.

I remember trying to really hard to sit still with my hands on my knees. I was not very successful. I itched, I got bored.

When I lived in DC and had a high(er) stress job than I have now, I looked into meditation classes...but I never followed through. I just couldn't find the time to clear my mind. Too much going on!

When I was pregnant I tried to get into hypnobirthing for awhile - which was a little like meditating, but usually it just made me fall asleep.

Now that I am in CA, maybe I should be more Zen and try again. Be intentional. Clear my mind. Maybe I will be less stressed about all the craziness being a mom of a toddler if I meditate. I don't really know how to start though. My usual tactic is to read a book, but I'm not sure that's the best way here...

When I imagine calmness...


Anyone ever try? Success? Results?

    1. Thanks for the idea. I've always found I need to do SOMETHING in order to think nothing...if that makes sense :) Thanks for stopping by!
