“Meditation is a state of consciousness in which a person goes deep within themselves, focusing the mind and eliminating outside influences to produce a state of deep peace and relaxation. Once in this place, you become an observer rather than a participator; observing your thoughts and observing your mind. It is in this space that you want and need for nothing.”

Things to try at home: Practise becoming more aware of your breathing. When are you breathing slowly? When are you breathing quickly? How do you breathe when you are in bed? How do you breathe when you are feeling stressed? Are you holding your breath? Start to form a relationship with your breath- your breath is who you are, without it, you would not be.
