The common misconception about meditation is that it takes too long to do, and is far too impractical to incorporate into one’s daily life. The fact of the matter is that it only takes a moment (one breath) to meditate.

So, with the average person taking 12 breaths a minute (that’s 6,286,920 times a year, in case you were wondering) it is pretty easy to find a few moments to come back to your breath and meditate each day.

Plus, meditation has been proven to reduce stress, increase happiness, and even rewire our neural pathways for better well-being. So, why not give it a shot?
