“Meditate” she said. “It’ll be good for you” she said. 

So a few months ago, I looked into it. 

  Contrary to what you might think, meditation is not just something only for Buddhist monks. Not only can anyone meditate, but there are myriad benefits to your health and well-being including, but not limited to:

  • Decrease blood pressure, as well as cortisol (a stress hormone) and cholesterol. 
  • Increase creativity
  • Reduce anxiety and strengthen the immune system
  • Increases calmness and provides a more positive emotional state

Well heck, I can check off all those items as something I could use help with. It doesn’t cost anything, so why not give it a try? 

I have been less than successful so far for several reasons. Primarily these:

  “Whatcha doin’, Mom?”

 “Are we getting treats now?”

“Here, let me help you by licking your face while you’re down here on the floor with me.”

But today I found a solution. If you’re looking for me, I’ll be in the only place I can be alone in this house – my closet.

This just cracked me up! Hilarious! I have no idea how to meditate, but it sounds like a good idea.
