Rising from the Falls of Life

Written by Josie Thomson on May 18, 2017

Just in this past two weeks I have known tragedy and loss, fraud and disappointment, shame and isolation, depression and despair, aloneness and regret, pain and defeat, sadness and grief. In spite of and despite all this, I have also known kindness and generosity of spirit, compassion and humility, love and care, encouragement and hope.

Meditation is an exercise in mindfulness. Despite what you may think, it doesn’t need to be hard and won’t require you to fit something else into your already busy schedule.

If you can take between 4-16 minutes* each day to sit and meditate or be guided through a relaxing visualisation then I would absolutely recommend that you do that, but if you can’t, or simply don’t want to, then you can still experience the benefits of mindfulness while you go
