How to meditate
Choose a clean, distraction-free spot or room in your home, though you can do it sitting in your chair at the office during lunch-hour, too! If it is at home, it is better not to use this space for any other activity.
Ensure the lighting is soothing and the ventilation sufficient – and the noise-levels under control.
You can listen to guided meditations, but it is better to start with a group.
Begin with a 21 days meditation challenge, if you do it with a group it will become a wonderful experience where everyone will support and encourage each other.
There has been researched by mental health specialists (from Harvard University as an example) that it takes 21 days for the brain to develop cellular memory and retain or quit a behavioral pattern.
Meditate at the same time every day, so it becomes a sustainable routine. Early morning is an optimal time.
Don’t overdo it. Start by meditating for 10-15 minutes. Keep a timer
Shut up – the cellphone.
Tell your family you are on Do Not Disturb mode for a short spell of time, till your meditation is over.
Wearing comfortable clothes, will certainly help.

I can Breathe, I am grateful for my breath and to be able to live.
I close the door to the past, open the door to the future, take a deep breath, and step on through and start a new chapter in my life.
Remember that maybe is not always about trying to fix something broken.
May be is about starting over and creating something better.
We are accountable for everything that happens into our lives, we take the amount of pain we accept. Is always our choice to take it or let it go.
