Meditation is one of the best techniques I know to manage stress and elevate the spirit. I wish that I was more consistent with my practice. I find it difficult these days to sit down and shut my eyes. I oftentimes elect to sit quietly listening to music, but that isn’t the same thing at all. Headstand doesn’t really count either. It isn’t logical to NOT practice; I know that I am so much more at peace when I meditate. I hope that your practice is stronger than mine. My husband is a dedicated meditator of years. I bow to his devotion 🙂
