I awoke excited because it was the kids’ first day of school. While I was happy for them, I was even more excited for myself and looking forward to the extra time I would have to invest in my own long overdue self-care.
A few friends had told me about the benefits of their meditation practices and it sparked my interest. I did some research and found stress reduction, reduced anxiety, improved emotional health, better self-awareness, improved sleep, reduced pain, and lower blood pressure were all mentioned as amazing benefits of meditation. I even read that, although there isn’t a lot of clinical data, meditation can help with weight-loss.
