Meditation

I have to say, I found meditating very helpful. Yesterday my thoughts wouldn’t stop racing. I just couldn’t get it to stop. I jumped up off my bed and grabbed my laptop. Eventually, it led me to this. I never really meditate or anything, but the idea sounded great. After about 20 minutes, I found myself with much calmer nerves, a clearer head and in a state that was much more comfortable & relaxed.

So, a resolution for myself this year is to begin practising techniques to relax and calm my mind. I need to think of the good things that I do have, not only the bad. Do you have any certain exercises to relax? If so, I’d love to know & give them a try!
