One big misconception many people have is that meditation is about clearing or emptying your mind. Thats not possible. Nor it is our goal. However, there is a big difference between “thinking” and “stressing”. Stressing is when you let the mind run amok, where it stops being productive. Its more often than not…. drama. That worrying aspect of the brain comes from problem solving, but at some point it stops being productive. And so meditation is giving yourself a break. It’s self care. It’s you making space for yourself in your day. And we are going to give you some tools that have been shown through many traditions and cultures, to be helpful. Generally speaking, while the art of meditation may not be easy, it is simple. The practice will vary day to day, moment by moment, and your job is to simply allow whatever it is that comes up in your mind to come up, without having to control it or change it or make it different somehow. Allow yourself to simply observe, just watch, without judgement. Theres no good no bad, no right no wrong. For once, you can just breathe.
