There are many reasons to meditate and most likely, you have thought of the many reasons not to. Beginning a meditation practice starts with your willingness to do so. It's simple but not always easy.
Like everything you have ever learned since the day you were born, crawling, reading, riding a bike, this too will take practice. So be kind to yourself, be willing and begin. Seek out a teacher or find a group and learn what it takes to bring this ancient and healing practice into your life.
You can do this! I have faith in you!
