Meditation is deceptively simple. Get comfortable, sit still and focus on your breath. As your mind wonders take notice, and come back to the breath. The first time you try, five minutes will feel like an eternity. Sometimes you only to achieve 30-seconds of quiet focus, but building a habit of nurturing your mind is the ultimate benefit.
Each day is different. Sometimes I settle right into the calm, other times I wander unable to control my focus. Observing and acknowledging my mind in the present moment. Careful not to scold or compare my sessions.
I find that meditation makes me more productive, aware and focused thru out the day. It seems easier to get into a creative flow state. I like to think of it as defragging your brain. Everything sharpens after a thought-free tune-up. Meditation has had a profound effect on my performance and quality of life.
