When you fill every moment, there's no space, growth, or freedom - only triggers and reactions. But a different path allows you to be present for your everyday moments, live an examined life, and improve the relationship that changes all your relationships and unlocks a secret to happiness.
Today is World Meditation Day, and we invite you to use it to create space and bring mindfulness to your everyday moments. And if you don't know how to begin, start with one minute because, as Jon Kabat-Zinn said, "we only have moments to live."
