The Benefits of Meditation
Americans practicing meditation has more than tripled since 2012. However, the art of slowing down, being present & unplugging is easier said than done for most.
It's undeniable that mediation has health benefits that stretch beyond those we achieve from physical exercise alone.
So, where do you start? How do you stay focused?
Here are a few simple steps:
Start small - short time frames, gradually increasing over time.
Find quiet - find a space with limited distractions to help maintain your focus.
Set your focus - as your mind wanders, find your focus & help yourself re-center.
Another great resource is to utilize a Meditation App. With a variety of focuses & lengths of time, these apps benefit both those brand new & experienced.
According to Women's Health Magazine here is a list of the 12 Best Meditation Apps for 2020.
