If you’re anything like me, you’re slightly obsessed with those incredibly successful people that illuminate popular headlines. They’re infamous for having broken the code. Somehow they manage to run their businesses, balance a personal life, exhibit seemingly healthy behavior, and still have time to read their favorite books. (Huh?! How?!)
Well, it turns out there’s a common thread among all of them. Want to know what it is?
Sure, I might be bias (because it’s totally changed my life!). But, I’m also coming from a place of truth, as a life coach. Not every client is that accepting of the concept. (There’s a lot of misunderstanding as to what meditation actually is, and how it can benefit an individual’s life.) However, just my incorporating the practice into daily life for as little as thirty minutes each day… you could begin to see results.
Kate Hudson proudly told People magazine, “Meditation has saved my sanity. Not that I was crazy, but in this world of hyper-speed, overstimulation, no escape from technology and constant emotional stress, it’s very hard to stay centered and grounded.”
Barbara Walters even does it! Arianna Huffington does it. Oprah even custom built a meditation room her her house, completely devoted to the practice — and she meditates for twenty minutes every day. (No one is allowed in the room for any other purpose, ever.)
The truth is, meditation is a form of exercise for your brain. (Just as “keeping busy keeps you young” meditating keeps you sane and calm.) Meditating for even twenty minutes a day is a pretty solid chunk of time that you’re clearing your mind of all thoughts and worry. It’s also an incredibly tough thing to do. It’ll lead to you feeling less anxious and depressed and can even boost productivity at work.
Try it. Let me know how it goes.
