Travel within the Mind: Meditation and a Clearer Outlook / by Alyssa Risley

To find peace and serenity in the chaos of the daily routine is key for progression and self appreciation. 💕💕 

Within the past few months I've recently started meditating several times a week to empty the useless clutter of my mind and make room for clarity and more focused productivity. Soon my goal is to practice meditating daily. I had always been curious about the art of meditation, but I subsequently honestly felt it would be too difficult or daunting to accomplish on my own. I still have a lot to learn and master with the discipline, but ever since I started listening to Tim Ferriss and his podcast months ago, I've learned that a very significant number of successful or interesting people incorporate meditation into their routines, even actors or people you wouldn't necessarily expect. I began to realize that a clear and fresh mind is an essential foundation for reaching your fullest potential and accomplishing the work necessary to see your dreams come to fruition. So!! In all, no matter what you do or what your future goals might be, I would recommend trying out thinking less and giving meditation a chance. It's really quite intriguing what a fresh perspective and clean slate can bring to your week.

P.S. If you don't know who Tim Ferriss is, go learn about him, he's super rad, his book The 4-Hour Workweek changed my entire perspective on my lifestyle potential, seriously.... http://fourhourworkweek.com/podcast/
