Meditate to create

What a gorgeous smile.

People talk about the benefits of meditation all the time. Here's another benefit: it increases creativity.

It creates flow. Blood flow. Thought flow. A slipstream of calm.

So, why doesn't everybody meditate? I believe it's because of one main reasons:
We think we have to do it right, do it daily, do it for a long time and...

...sit on those cushions cross-legged.

None of this is true.

Three minutes--a mini-meditation--every other day works. Works incredibly. Tremendously.

Next: a couple of meditation styles that can be done in 3 minutes.

Oh, what a good reminder! Thanks for the tip, Conda. I'll be watching for the three-minute meditations. We're travelling and that makes it soooo much more difficult to maintain a practice. With your reminders and this blog, perhaps I can stay more consistent. Ommmmm...

Thanks for your comment, Cynthia. AND you bring up a good point--if we get into a habit, it's easier to maintain even while traveling, etc.
