Meditation Matters

Meditation Matters Today More Than Ever

Depression, anxiety, and insomnia are a record levels. It’s an epidemic. One of the least expensive ways to feel better is through a daily meditation practice. It helps us discover greater empathy and compassion for ourselves and others.

One of the most powerful ways to do tip the scales away from stress and anxiety and towards happiness and peace of mind is through mindfulness.

One of my goals in living ageless is to open my heart space, even just a little bit. This brings me to the subject of meditation. I meditate almost everyday. I’m not always good at it. In fact, I’m often impatient, restless, and ready to do something, anything, else, but daily meditation does make me feel better. Every. Damn. Time. As Oprah Winfrey says: “It doesn’t matter how long you sit and meditate—I meditate every morning. What is it for if it doesn’t allow you to move through the world in a more calmed and centered space?” And this is, for me, is the true test of the Ageless Pathway: How does it allow me to be in the world? Am I operating from a more calmed and centered space?

Meditation and the pursuit of a more spiritual life only works if we apply a little rigor to it. Because without consistency and some order, we will never find the peace we want. We will never feel as good as we could.  To see and feel results, consistency counts. It’s nearly impossible to go deeper and feel better without routine, discipline… consistency.

This is why daily meditation is so important. It helps me operate from a more centered place. I’m more expansive and hopeful.  

Try the meditation series on this site. It’s 13 minutes total, 12 minutes of actual meditating time, and get into the habit of daily meditation. Studies have shown just 12 minutes a day is enough to calm the mind and make you younger biologically. Now that’s #agelessliving.
