Welcome to 5 Days of Free Meditation
Thank you for signing up to Commit To Sit. We're so happy you're here and ready to make a commitment to improve your emotional health.
With all the stress of the pandemic, many of us have been caught in panic mode for far too long. Spending this much time in “fight or flight” can wreak havoc on our minds and bodies. Meditation is more important now than ever.
Some say the goal is stillness, clarity, total silence or inner peace. For me, meditation is a chance to come back to my core self. To remind myself that I am not just my thoughts. Meditation is a reminder to be present with anything that arises without judgement or reaction.
That’s not to say that you won’t react to your thoughts or judge what comes up while you’re sitting. Because you will. You've been conditioned to react to your triggers your whole life. And this is why we need meditation. To help us separate the real truth from the truth we tell ourselves.
The real beauty of meditation is that you learn become aware of when and how you're reacting and how to better control your emotions. Meditation enhances self awareness, reduces stress, controls anxiety and promotes emotional health.
You will receive the first of 5 daily emails from us shortly. Each email will have a guided meditation and tips for how to make your practice a sustainable one. If you have any questions, please reach out. We're always here for you.
