Sometimes it is incredibly difficult to switch off from the stressors of your life and take the time to meditate. But when when we take the time to meditate, when we become more self-aware and learn to observe ourselves and our reactions, we will find that we often find time for the things we need to do.
Meditation is not a one-time thing. It is a way of living and a way of learning how to be in the world. It is about learning how to observe our thoughts and feelings, how to avoid getting lost in them, and how to observe these ideas and emotions without judgement.
