Are you stressed out? Do you worry about your physical health? Your mental health? Your spiritual health? Do you wish you had less stress and anxiety in your life and more peace and harmony? Are you working 10-12 hour days, 6 days a week in a stressful job. You worry about your partner, your children who are not getting enough of the time they deserve with you. You worry about the rent or the mortgage, the car payments, medical expenses, credit card debt and on the list goes.
Many people in your position spend their days running nonstop trying to take care of everything and make everybody happy, however, they never have the time to take care of themselves, often falling into bed a night, heart pounding will the lists of worries still running through their heads, building the stress and anxiety to the point they start to worry about their health and even their sanity.
The first warning signs that things are getting out of control is the health concern, feeling tired all the time, gaining some weight, feeling breathless and dizzy. Feeling like your falling apart mentally, physically and spiritually.
Perhaps you’ve tried a number of thing, the gym, fad diets, home exercise machines and even maybe time management programs with little success because you couldn’t stick with any of them long enough. Eventually you realise they didn’t work because they were all short-term fixes to a long-term problem – it’s time to make change!!
Many people who have joined us in Meditation classes share the same story.
Now change doesn’t come easily either, most people go through the stage of buying a bunch of books, going to the library, reading articles etc. and somewhere along the road the word “Meditation” keeps reoccurring, and maybe you’ve tried Meditation before but it was one of those things you tried years ago but had gotten frustrated and quit before really giving it a chance.
But what I’m saying to you is to
“Start right now”
Meditating does not cost anything and anyone can learn to do it!! (You may choose to invest in some guided Meditations to assist you to get started), It’s not a quick fix, but it will be a defining moment in your life when you make the decision to bring Meditation into your life.
Making the decision to incorporate meditation in your everyday life will change everything for you.
Nothing else in your life will change immediately because you decide to Meditate, however you will start to feel better, less stressed and even more energetic!
Once you start feeling more relaxed and less stressed, you will be better able to focus on the other things you need to do to become mentally, physically and spiritually healthy.
You will become, happier, healthier, and at peace with the world around you, you will find that you can do things like incorporated a good exercise plan into your life, you’ll enjoy a lovely walk, you’ll look at your diet with time to incorporate a healthy eating plan.
