All it takes is 10 minutes

Are you dreaming of getting into a daily mediation practice, but you just don’t know where to start?

Have you tried meditation again and again and given up again and again?

Or, maybe you  want to get into a daily practice,  but you feel overwhelmed  just thinking about it?

Maybe you feel so stressed that you think it would be impossible? Look at this….

I came across Andy Puddicombe, the creator of GET SOME HEADSPACE –   a mindfulness meditation program online. He has THE most pragmatic, fantastic and down-to-earth approach to meditation you will ever find!

The benefits of taking just 10 minutes out of your day to meditate, are tremendous.

I love and live my meditations – this time of my day, reserved for me, is a way to reconnect and tune in, it’s my sanctuary. In a busy life with lots of balls in the air, this is what makes me feel grounded, connected and reconnected.  It’s really not just about me, when I’m more in touch with me, I’m more in touch with my children, my family, friends, the people I work with and meet during my day. I’m able to be truly present with the world. 

These are some of the side-effects you may experience when meditating.  Be aware, you may feel more:

  • calm
  • clarity
  • laughter and happiness
  • energy
  • creativity
  • flow

Mindfulness meditation:

  • Reduces stress
  • Reliefs anxiety
  • Helps with depression
  • Boosts your immune system
  • Improves your sleep
  • Helps with Addiction
  • And even PTSD

And all it takes is 10 minutes!

Andy Puddicombe has created the Get Some Headspace program – which starts with a 10 minutes for 10 days program and it’s FREE for you to download HERE

  1. You really got me with those first two sentences! My new year’s resolution for 2012 and 2013 was to establish a meditation practice. I didn’t set a resolution this year, but I have started meditating anyway. Interestingly, I’m only doing it for 10 minutes a day just five days a week. I think my problem in the past is I was expecting myself to meditate for 20 minutes seven days a week and it was just too much to start with. I’m curious about Puddicombe’s approach, however; so I’m gonna check him out. Thanks for sharing this Anne! Celeste :)

    • Hi Celeste, thank you for your comment! Yes small steps go a long way. It’s a great way to start – and maybe the only way if we want to stick with it and make a habit out of it. I really enjoy Andy Puddicombe’s approach! I have done Take 10, Take 15 and I only have a few days left of Take 20 – loving it and feeling all the benefits :-)
