Meditation Resources

Man, I am so grateful that I haven’t given up on meditation.  I truly believe that it is the single most important act of self-care.  Through meditation, I have seen that my thoughts do not mean anything.  I have learned to respond, rather than react.  I have created space in my head from the constant chatter of my “monkey mind.”  After getting all up in my head after seeing an ex BF last weekend, I am now meditating twice per day – 10 minutes each time.  I am still not looking forward to each session, but it is something that I make myself do (like exercise) for my own peace of mind.  I do believe that if I keep the practice up, I will someday look forward to sitting.  Until then, here are some of my favorite meditation resources.
