Meditation. It’s a ten-letter word that can actually mean many different things: dread, ease, boredom, excitement, disdain, and happiness, just to name a few. For those new to meditation, it can seem like a tall task: sitting quietly for an extended period of time in a crossed-leg position, clearing one’s mind, and experiencing deep peace. In reality, this definition of meditation is a misrepresentation of the practice – one that can scare newcomers away from a practice that can support their overall health and well-being.
Though meditation may seem like an austere practice reserved for only the most devout, it’s actually a practice for everyone. Newcomers need not worry about starting a meditation practice – it’s not only doable but important.
