Most of us would love to make meditation a part of our lives. Unfortunately, when we actually get around to trying it (rather than just reading or thinking about it), we feel distracted, think we’re doing it wrong, or feel like we just can’t spare the time. It’s a real mental battle just to push the distractions away for a few minutes of silence.
Mindfulness expert, Andy Puddicombe, has a simple message about how we approach meditation. In the short video below he shares his belief that meditation—even just a little bit!—is critical to a healthy mind and life, and thinks everyone has the ability and time to do it. He explains how, with just 10 minutes of mindfulness a day, we can change the way we see the world.
How can you argue with 10 minutes? I think you’ll find his message inspiring enough that you’ll want to take a few extra minutes for a little meditation at the beginning or end of your next yoga practice.
