Meditation Corner: Shutting Down to Find Our Center

GuidanceI’ve attempted to center myself in the past, to no avail. Aside from sleep, my high energy and buzzing mind fight any form of relaxation. I can’t even relax when getting a massage at a spa. Though my body lies flat on a table, my thoughts run rampant. I hope she doesn’t rub me there, I think. Ooh, that tickles! I fight to say, holding in a giggle. And then there are the thoughts about my day and the decisions and moves that must be made.

This failure to shut down the brain usually brings on stress. And, though I don’t stress like most folks I know (hair loss, weight gain, and moodiness), I do get killer headaches and back aches due to tension.

That is not conducive to good work and success.

So, in an effort to keep motivated and doing great work, I have built a meditation corner.
