Today feels like a heavy day in America, and I think we could all use a moment to breathe. It’s also International #StressAwarenessWeek, so literally, the perfect day to talk about breathing.

First, I’d like to ask you. When you think about meditation, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? Boring? Too woo woo? I can’t sit still? I’m not into it?

Well, let me ask you another few questions: Do you feel overwhelmed these days? Do you ever feel stressed out? Are you short-tempered lately? Has the pandemic sucked some of the daily joy out of your life? Does life seem a lot like groundhog day? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you should meditate.

In fact, EVERYONE should meditate.
