Meditation! In this episode, I tell how a stress-induced panic attack became the catalyst that eventually led to my meditation practice. I share my story of getting started, what it’s actually like to meditate, and how my current meditation practice compares to my first efforts at meditation.
I also explain how you can start a meditation practice in your already-busy life, and I give simple instructions on how to actually do it.
The benefits of meditation are many, and it’s been a huge blessing in my life. I hope you find this episode helpful as you begin or continue your own meditation practice.
