It's the start of a new year, a clean slate for self-improvement and the perfect time to finally start doing all the things we swore we would do last year (and likely the year before that too). Most new year's resolutions include becoming healthier, but we tend to focus on food and exercise while neglecting something very important – the health of our mind.
If you haven't meditated before, you're probably a little skeptical. You might think it's just for tree-hugging, kale-loving, free spirits. But would you think the same thing about someone who exercises by going for walks? No, you wouldn't. Meditation should be as common and as natural as going for a walk. And just like walking, meditation helps to clear your mind and it offers a plethora of benefits for your wellbeing.
