In my mid-thirties, after recovering from a decade of debilitating illness, I knew I needed to change, or all the things I wanted in life—family, health, career, travel—wouldn’t be possible.
I came across the power of Do-Nothing Meditation and spent the best part of 2008 in this unique practice. I came to see the real nature of the mind and was less bothered by its antics (Full story with pictures here.):
I was less anxious. I felt better about myself, regardless of what was happening. I stopped pushing myself to the point of burnout. I was more relaxed and learned how to tap into my dreams and make them happen.
And it took minimal effort! (You don’t have to do it for a year!)
I love showing people the power of taking time out—even a few minutes daily. Not only do you feel better, but you get more done, and the quality of what you do is better, too.
I am on a mission!
Doing nothing (without distractions like reading, internet, etc) is a meditation!
If you struggle with traditional meditation this technique is wonderfully approachable.
