Meditation is integral to my daily routine.

I deserve to have special time today to spend doing whatever I want to do. Having time to replenish, re-charge, and re-invigorate my mind, body, and soul is necessary if I want to be productive and efficient every day.

Meditation accomplishes all these tasks and is an essential part of each day.

Meditating brings me feelings of comfort and enhanced well-being. When I meditate, I concentrate on my breathing. As I clear my mind of extraneous thoughts, I feel my body relaxing to the rhythm of my breathing. I find meditating to be one of the greatest joys of my life. It helps me stay focused throughout my busy days.

I trust the process of meditation because it brings me so much tranquility and peace.
When I want to settle down from a hectic day, I take 10 minutes to meditate. I marvel at the difference those 10 minutes make in my day.

The stress and distress I feel before I sit down to meditate disappears by the end of my meditation session. I am renewed. I start fresh from that point in the day. Meditation is truly a cherished jewel in my daily routine.

Today, I plan to meditate for at least 3 10-minute sessions. I believe that meditating in this way helps me to feel calm, handle troublesome events more easily, and manage my own emotions more successfully.

The time I spend meditating ensures my life is filled with the joy and accomplishment I deserve.
