I used to say that I would begin meditating, someday. But I thought I didn’t have the time.
Then, I heard on a podcast that a meditation practice could be meaningful with as little as 5 minutes a day…and POOF! my excuse was gone. I now meditate every morning – for about 10-15 minutes. Before I brush my teeth or read anything on my iPhone. It’s become one of my favorite parts of the day.
Whether you’re just now considering starting to meditate, or an experienced meditator, you can find instruction and support in Plymouth. I’m so pleased that there are 2 offerings open to the public on Weds., March 20. One is in the morning at Wildlands Trust, and the second is the Plymouth Zen Group. Details on both can be found at the Things to Do In Plymouth MA events calendar (at Plymouth123.com).
Here’s one way to look at it. I believe meditation and a cultivation of mindfulness and living in the moment is to your mind and mental health what walking and working out is for your body. Both make you stronger and more resilient in the face of stresses. Both are practices that become more powerful over time.
Whether it’s in the morning at Wildlands Trust or in the evening at Plymouth Zen, meditation can be YOUR Thing to Do In Plymouth MA!
