20 reasons to start meditating today. Number 14 is good!

How many times have you put meditation on your goals list? How many times have you said “I am going to start meditating”? How many times have you read about the benefits or heard <amazing inspiring person> talk about their experience with meditation? 

Yeh, we are guessing a lot, but NOW is the perfect time to begin.

We started meditating in 2012. Since then our practice has evolved over time as we’ve grown and learned different techniques.

It’s changed our lives for the better and led us to create MerryMind, our guided meditation program.

We believe in the magic and power of taking small steps. 

Maybe your meditation is watering the garden. 

Maybe it is simply being in nature, disconnected from technology and connected to Mother Earth.

Maybe your meditation is taking 3 deep belly breaths. 

We truly believe that everyone can meditate, you just need to begin.

We found magic in guided meditation because when we first started we felt like we had no idea what we were doing.

Guided meditations take you on a journey inward, all you need to do is listen, breathe and the guided meditation will do the rest. 

If you need a little more motivation to begin your journey with meditation, check out all these reasons to start meditating today! There are so many benefits from a meditation practice… we’ve definitely experienced some of these!
