At its core Black Women's Day of Meditation is about encouraging all of you to make meditation a part of your every day life in order to promote good mental and physical health. I've listed all of the benefits of meditation but one thing I didn't mention is that many of you may already be doing it. That's right! Even if you don't know it, you might already be a meditation guru.
Have you ever taken a quick nap? You know the kind where you can wake up out of it at any moment. This kind of light sleep is a form of meditation. It's rejuvenating, super healthy and allows us to tap into our subconscious mind. That's why for many of us, when we're in this state we feel semi-awake. Taking these kinds of naps allows the brain to rest and therefore you can be sharper and clearer afterward. Additionally, you can set intentions, ask questions or think about a problem before going into this meditation and, in many cases, you just may wake up with the answer.
I encourage those of you who don't feel like you're cut out for that meditation life to try taking a quick meditation-nap.
You won't regret it!
