1. WHY MEDITATE?
TIME: (0:30) Slow down and see things. Lessons from a Buddhist monk: 3 kinds of wisdom (learn from others, practice, thought out). We often lack the thought out wisdom. Meditation develops the third kind. (TIP: Journaling does this as well!).
2. WHAT IS MEDITATION?
TIME: (3:04) Meditation is a time to fill yourself up. Meditation is a time to focus on your breathing. Meditation is a time to focus your mind (not silence it). IMAGE: Training your mind is like training a dog. Think of a newborn puppy – walking the puppy is near impossible at the start. What should be a 10 min walk around the block turns into a 45min “stop and sniff everything” session. To train the puppy, we have to constantly redirect it back on track. Overtime, the dog learns how to stay focused. If we are consistent enough training our dog, eventually it can walk itself off leash.
3. HOW TO MEDITATE?
TIME: (0:30) TOOLS: My top 3 meditation anchors (Focus Breathing, Mnantra, Color Breathing). Use these to make the most out of your meditations.
