A Guided Meditation
If you want to start meditating and/or start citing positive affirmations but don't know where to start, I gotchu. I created this 10 min guided meditation to help you start. You can meditate ANYWHERE but I prefer to meditate in a nice quiet area, away from distractions. Sit down comfortably (whether it be in a chair or on the floor), make sure your hands are placed in your lap comfortably and close your eyes. Feel free to say each affirmation aloud or in your head. That's pretty much it. If you decide to use this guided meditation, please feel free to tell me about your experience! AGAIN, thank you. I appreciate you.
