12 big benefits of meditation bajezen.blog


I first decided to try meditation about a year ago. I was feeling totally stressed and really out of it. I tried it on a whim really. I thought what do I have to lose? I took to YouTube to search for a meditation video.They were so many but I was looking for something short and to the point, to begin with.

Patience is not a virtue that I possess.(work in progress) I tried the first video that popped up which happened to be Bexlife . One short meditation and I was convinced.There really is a meditation for every one of life’s issues.All it took was four minutes. It is so simple anyone can do it! Not a lot of time but a whole lot of benefits. So, of course, I had to buy her book You Have Four minutes to Change Your Life. I can’t wait to read it. It only came today. Hey, I am late to the party it launched in February. If you have not given meditation a try I would encourage anyone to try it.20170808_182118 (1)
