Meditation is not just for hippies and buddist monks! There are so many health benefits to a few moments of mindfulness in your day. I spend 5-10 minutes each morning before school, just sitting in silence and getting grounded for the day, and it makes me a more patient and thoughtful teacher, friend and person! It can be a quick 5 minute time to centre yourself, or 30 minutes if thats your fancy! Either way, it can change your day! Here are some of the great reasons to try to sit in quiet for 5 minutes of mindful focus!
