When you think of meditation what is the first thing that comes to mind? Probably some bald headed monk living in a monastery in the middle of nowhere meditating in complete silence. One does not need to be in complete silence to meditate. The point of meditation is to quiet one’s mind. To focus on just one thing. To keep your thoughts from controlling your thinking. It is a chance to unwind, to reduce stress and to live more in the moment, appreciating every minute of every day and not just looking forward to the weekend or getting out of work. That is the essence of meditation.
