52 Weeks of gratitude: Week 11

March 18, 2018

"The goal of meditation isn't to control your thoughts, it's to stop letting them control you." 

Creating the time and space for meditation has proved positive with an 82-day streak. A practice I follow with my Calm app. Each morning I embrace the quiet habit I have formed, setting my intention for the day ahead. Those ten minutes provide the space I need to begin my day in a peaceful state.

I began 2018 with the decision to cultivate time each day for myself. Creating a list of MUST do things, each day. Waking early for this mindful process still provides excitement within this promise to myself. Each small step moving me closer to the goals I chose at the start of the year. Starting my days with this practice is a dedication to my well being I am no longer willing to sacrifice.

Grateful for these small changes from a promise I fulfill to myself that each day.

The benefits of meditation are boundless, but here are just a few that I have found beneficial:

  • Reduces stress
  • Controls anxiety
  • Promotes emotional health
  • Enhances self-awareness
  • Improves sleep
  • Can decrease blood pressure
  • Increases optimism
