Meditation, it’s the new kale. It’s something everyone is telling us to do for better health and piece of mind.
But, where do we start? How do we begin, when most of us already stretched for time throughout the day ? And, what if we have one of those busy monkey brains and feel we just can’t meditate?
On today’s Blab Eileen Cruz dispelled the many myths surrounding meditation (like you DON’T have to be a monk to successfully meditate), while also providing a TON of amazing tips and techniques to fit meditation in your in-between moments through the day.
This was such a special Blab!
