Daily Challenge: Meditate For Ten Minutes

This isn’t the first, nor the last, time I’ll mention meditation on this blog. I think the importance of meditation can’t be understated. Whether you do it daily, weekly, or just once in a while, meditation allows you to focus on your breathing, calm yourself, and take a break from the outside world to bring a sense of peace to your life.

Today’s daily challenge is a simple one: meditate for 10 minutes.

Super easy to do, right? It’s just ten minutes out of your day — just 10 minutes of the 1,440 minutes each day offers us, which is not an unreasonable request.

Whether you choose to do this when you wake up in the morning and before you begin your day, when you’re ending your day and heading to bed, or in the midst of your day, is completely up to you. Each time offers its own unique benefits: helping you prepare for the day, allowing you to calm down from a busy day before a night’s sleep, or just allowing you to take a break and step away from the madness that can be everyday life.

Some people might read this and say “Well, I don’t know how to meditate.” In reality, there’s no “wrong” way. You might like music, or silence. You might have a mantra. You might sit, or lay, or find some other (yoga?) position. Here’s a few websites to help: Link 1, Link 2.

If you’re still not convinced, here’s a few websites highlighting the various benefits of meditation, including Forbes and The Huffington Post.
