Life gets busy and we get even busier. As the demands of life pile up, stress comes knocking on our door. Quality of life is suddenly replaced by “quantity of life.” Quantity of activities, of chores, of demands for attention, of things we accumulate, you name it.
The question is how do we slow down so we can enjoy life? How do we increase our quality of life? How do we replace mundane days with blissful days?
The answer for me was simple: meditation and mindfulness. This daily practice has enriched my life and brought me many valuable assets such as peace, quietness, patience, and clarity, to name a few.
Some of you may be thinking that it’s boring, you can’t sit still, you don’t have time, you’ve tried and you can’t stick with it, your mind doesn’t want cooperate, or you don’t know how to do it. Believe me, I’ve used all these excuses myself, plus a few others. So I’ve devised an easy plan to help you along the way.
The blissful plan
Out of my many trials and errors in building my own practice, I’ve created a daily plan to gently guide you in creating your practice. My blissful plan is detailed in my new FREE ebook, Fast Track to Bliss. Here’s a sneak peak of what this guide offers.
Fast Track to Bliss offers simple daily meditation and mindfulness exercises. I provided different exercises so you can play with which type of meditation resonates best with you. These exercises can be easily performed each day no matter how hectic your life might be.
The key to any practice is consistency. You have to show up every day for your practice. My guide offers enough exercises to allow you to build a habit over a one month period. Once the habit is formed, it’ll be easier to maintain your practice.
The growth gained from developing an inner practice can be astonishing. My own inner practice has helped me relax more, stay more in the moment throughout the day, and lead a happier life. Basically, it has brought me a deeper sense of well being throughout my life.
Blissful days every day
My meditation is not perfect. I frequently have “monkey mind” – that experience of many thoughts jumping around in my head and clamoring for attention. But it’s ok. Meditation is not about being perfect or doing it right. Meditation is simply about doing it.
During meditation, there is no one to judge you, no one to compete with, no one to complain about, no one period. It’s just you.
Undoubtedly, I have a long way to go in many aspects of my life. But the good news is I’ll be blissfully enjoying each step along the way. You can too.
How do you slow down your rhythm? What are your tips for reducing your speed so you can enjoy your life more? How do you incorporate peace into your routine?
With you always in my heart,
