Introduction to Meditation


In addition to embodiment and mindfulness, meditation is also an extremely helpful competency for you to develop.

Meditation helps you maintain your balance throughout your busy day, and can help you combat depression and fatigue. It doesn’t have to be a long, drawn out process. Even ten minutes per day can help.

This next talk is a really good one meant to help you think about adding short, purposeful meditation breaks in your day. There are no exercises or quizzes associated with this section, although we do hope you take at least ten minutes to meditate sometime today, and each day to come.
