DEDICATE A SPACE AND “TRIP OVER IT”


Quote for the Day: “Dedicating some time to meditation is a meaningful expression of caring for yourself that can help you move through the mire of feeling unworthy of recovery. As your mind grows quieter and more spacious, you can begin to see self-defeating thought patterns for what they are, and open up to other, more positive options.” ~ Sharon Salzberg Recommendation for the Day: Dedicate a space for daily meditation. There are a lot of advantages to creating a special place for our meditation practice. Meditating in the same space over and over again will reinforce good behaviors when you return to that spot. I find myself settling in for a sit a little more quickly when I’m in my dedicated space. It is almost as if we subconsciously say to ourselves, “oh yeah, this is my quiet place. Time to settle down.” To riff off of Salzberg’s quote, dedicating a space to our practice is a meaningful expression that our meditation is worthy of being a part of our daily life. By
