A Clear Mind by Design Karen Otis

The purpose of meditation is to quiet the mind and to stop the distractions and chaos of everyday life. The tension, stress, and anxiety we experience are typically generated by our minds. Meditation stops the chatter, allowing us to let go of the stress, find inner calm and peace, and achieve a sense of relaxed happiness. I invite you to take three minutes a day to meditate using the following easy steps.
1. Choose a quiet place to meditate. Sit cross-legged on the floor or on a meditation pillow if that is comfortable for you. Otherwise, a chair is fine.
2. Consider lighting a candle or some incense to create a ritual for your brain to click into that tells it it’s time to be quiet.
