My Current Meditation

We all know this time of year is a stressful time. I recently shared a post asking my readers for ideas on Stress Relief. I got some awesome suggestions. One of them was getting back into my meditation practice. I always seem to forget how truly helpful daily meditation is. The last three days I have done the same guided meditation. Usually I do a new one each day, but this one is soooo good I plan to do it several more days in a row. I wanted to share it so that any of you who may need some peace as the Holidays begin will have this at your fingertips. I highly recommend it!
