Most people think meditation is for monks in Tibet, not for everyday people, and I’m going to have to agree with them. Meditating for hours trying to empty your mind and become enlightened is most likely not going to serve you in your everyday life. I know every time I’ve tried it, I find myself wondering the whole time if I’m doing it right. On the other hand, taking 15-30 minutes a day to listen to or help guide your thoughts is an incredibly valuable experience. I spend as much time as possible with my thoughts because that’s when I learn the most about myself, reflect on my feelings and dream about the future. It’s quite possibly the only time I really get to just hang out with myself - and I'm awesome and so are you - so it’s time to give yourself a little bit of time with your mind.
